Tony Gee is currently completing the design for the world’s tallest Buddhist shrine. The classic Buddhist stupa, 108m high, will be uniquely combined with a 54m bronze statue of the Maitreya Buddha and stand at the head of the new Grand Maitreya Buddhist complex.
The new complex will be the centre of cultural heritage and will combine the valuable Buddhist traditions of the country with modern art, design and engineering advancements.
Tony Gee was selected by the Grand Maitreya Foundation because state-of-the-art levels of design were required, built to international standards. The design had been started previously by others and the foundations partly built. The stupa design was then changed. Our new design will incorporate as much of the existing foundation as possible.
