activity Project: Bishop Cotton’s Boys School Location: Residency Road, Bangalore, India Size: 50,000 sqft Design Team:Vivek Shankar, Elayaraja, Aishwarya Katta Responsibilities: Project handling, design development, research, 3d modeling, working drawings, site supervision. The aim was not to maximize floor space area only for the sake of doing so and it was also not simply to build maximum floors for the sake of doing so. The main aim was to maximize quality of space dependent on program and to allow the architecture to create a better learning environment in the school. There was an attempt to incorporate program effectively but at the same time address important issues like interaction, exchange and redundancy.

many housing units were worked out keeping in mind the sqaure feet, “vastu“ and making sure each unit functions as a well-defined space by making it very efficient. The apartments are meant to make the residents feel differently: while being part of the community and having enough privacy to be independent.

connect In collaboration with Juan David Guarin Professor: Mark Nicol, Sameer Kumar The bridge is the result of a very disciplined and thorough process in which the repetition and modulation of a structural frame allows the possibility of stretching different types of materials with the purpose of generating spatial continuity and elaborated geometrical shapes. Therefore, the bridge is the product of assembling multiple structural modules that generate transitions from awkward and “uncomfortable�spaces into wide-open and sublime spaces.

decreasing the U-value the glass will reflect heat making the home better insulated. Hence higher SHGC is required in Philadelphia so that during winter, natural heat is allowed in. This reduces the heating loads substantially.

contributes to the energy loss for the bedroom. This could be mainly because when the windows are opened, heat is lost from the inside to the outside or vice versa.

lighting, occupancy and equipment helped the room be comfortable substantially. especially during the winter.
