Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá: Concrete bases for garden berms completed

BWNS reports on major developments and endeavors of the global Baha’i community

BAHÁ’Í WORLD CENTRE — The concrete bases that will support the two garden berms on either side of the central plaza for the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá are now complete. The structural reinforcement and formwork for one of the walls enclosing the south plaza are also taking shape.

The selection of photos below provides a view into the work currently underway.

An aerial view shows recent progress in the construction work for the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. The site for the Shrine is located near the Riḍván Garden, which is visible in the foreground.

In the central plaza area, the concrete planters that will hold soil and irrigation for gardens have been completed.

The formwork has been laid for the concrete floor of the central plaza.

The architect’s design on the left shows the central structure and surrounding plaza. Current progress on the plaza floor can be seen on the right, where preparations are underway to raise the walls that will enclose this area on two sides.

Special steel formwork has been made to give these walls their folded shape, which will blend with the intricate trellis overhead.

The structural reinforcement and formwork for one of the walls enclosing the south plaza are being assembled.

A short wall that connects with the base of the berms is being built, which will form a drainage channel for the gardens and support the inner edge of a path that will encircle the Shrine.

At the north end of the site, beyond the encircling path, a further concrete base that will support terraced planters has been prepared.
