Transparence 11.0 Centre for performing arts (Space in motion) Pragati Maidan Complex, New Delhi.

INTRODUCTION: Space in motion

A space in physical sense is defined by its boundaries and enclosure and this sense is incapable of designing a space in motion since all the measurable constituents are static in nature. However, in architectural sense many immeasurable constituents hold utmost importance in designing of a space. Often neglected in contemporary architecture, these constituents like the human body and emotions, light, sound, materials, objects are in a constant state of flux establishing and disbanding relationships with each other. A space will be considered in motion when the latter constituents will form inter-relationships with each other and change themselves with time during a day.

GRID BASED APPROACH

CONTEXT:

Delhi is a spectacular city looking ahead. With modern structures built in concrete. The present scenario of sustainability can also be found in buildings like the Indian habitat Centre and Indira paryawaran bhavan. The proposed site for performance center is in the most culturally vibrant convention Centre of Delhi. Pragati maidan hosts some of the biggest gatherings of Delhi including the famous trade fair, auto expo and book fair every year. The site has been dynamic in nature and adapts itself for various activities throughout the year. The structures inside pragati maidan translate the meaning of pragati (progress) in every sense. Hall of nations is a modern structure designed with a deep sense of contemporary Indian architecture lies adjacent to the proposed site.

INTERSECTING STREETS

CONCEPT EVOLUTION:

We did not intend to pick a weird concept and end up with a dynamic looking weird form but in the process realized that a dynamic form can be a simple geometric shape showcasing its dynamic functions and should be adaptable and inviting. Dynamism through streets- increasing permeability and learnings from traditional Indian architecture: Circulation becomes an integral part of the activity. It increases the permeability, social quotient. Indian population tends to express themselves easily in these kinds of structures. Form reflects function: The most important aspect of this building is that its form has been designed as to reflect its function. One can easily find the activity of its choice from any point.
