Project Type: Instituional Building Brief: Design a Creative Arts Intitute in Vasant Kunj

Site Area: 13000 sq.m. Built Up: 7500 sq.m. Ground Coverage: 3600 sq.m.

Project Requirements: - A 150 seat Auditorium • Class rooms • Computer/Digital Labs/work spaces • Library - Digital archive • Cafeteria

The focus of the studio was to allow the students to explode the idea of an institution by letting them define their own brief and programme. The site assigned was heavily contoured, with a 8m deep ravine. The design reponse was thus formulated according to the site - to activate the views towards the ravine and thus a conscious effort was made to ensure that was the focal point for the orientation of all studios. “Learning through seeing” was an imperitive concept, especially in a creative arts instutitute which would flourish through inspiration from one another.

HOUSING

SKY VERANDAHS ARCH.DESIGN

YEAR4SEM1

In collaboration with Riya Chadha

Project Type: Housing for Mixed Income Group Site Area: 5 acres Project Requirements: - Two Schools - Clubhouse - Commercial/Retail Space - Daycare Center - Mixed Income Group Housing: Luxury and Compact units, along with EWS Housing

HEIRARCHY: To balance the verticality of the tower. Iconic Towers - height of 30 & 28 floors .Twin towers - height of 25 and 23 floors.

With the key focus on large scale multi-facility housing development , the studio also focused on other community based functions such as clubhouse, school etc. that are imperitive and act as a backbone to any housing development. Our group was assigned four towers and two typologies - two iconic towers and one set of twin towers. In addition to that, the central green space along with the clubhouse acting as the public heart to the masterplan also had to be designed.. For this intervention. the design idea adopted was to activate the central green space through walkways being formed with public floors, leading to the landscaped greens. The idea was to not only restrict these green spaces to the ground level, but to also give the users an option to invest in the ‘sky verandah’ typology - in both the twin tower, being the economical option and iconic tower for the luxurious option.

07

PUBLIC FLOORS AND WALKWAYS: To break verticality of the towers, public floors are created as a horizontal break - also serve the dual purpose of acting as a walkway - opening up to the central public realm

ACTIVATING GREEN SPACES & VERANDAHS: To further continue the concept of the central green space - verandahs are provided on higher levels on all floors in the Iconic Tower and on every four floors in the Twin Towers.

ICONIC TOWER TYPOLOGY

To utilise the site potential and views for the iconic tower, each flat was placed in the corner.

Finally, the units were straggered to accomodate the core and ensure that it has enough light.

3 & 4 BHK DUPLEX

Each house was then pushed out to provide views from three sides.

Every house is given a verandah - planatations on the same allow for a cooler temperature, reduction of noise, and continues the concept of activating the green space on higher levels.

KEY PLAN

The Iconic Towers stood as a mark of luxury along the periphery of the central green space , thus promising the best views. The objective was to provide every unit with a verandah. Following the goal of catering to a mixed income group, not only did the tower have 3 & 4 BHK Duplexes, but to cater to a more economical option, luxurious 2 & 3BHK Aparements with a Verandah were also designed.

CULTURAL CENTRE ARCH.DESIGN

YEAR2SEM1

Project Type: Cultural Centre Project Site: Sunset Boulevard, Gurgaon Built Up: 1500 sq.m. Project Requirements: - 150 seater Auditorium - Performance Area - Gallery - Library

FLUIDITY OF MASS: The initial conceptual form was of a hollow cylinder. Instead of going for sharp angles and linear walls, a more fluid design was considered - which would help the visitors ‘flow’ through the spaces.

- Administration areas -Museum - Studio - Cafeteria

The studio focused on creating narratives through space which unfold with the design of three entities - ‘the Entry’, ‘the Path’ and ‘the Place’. Each entitiy would lead to the other to create an integrated design.

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATION STUDIO AUDITORIUM MUSEUM GALLERY CAFETERIA

The exercise established a reductive conceptual basis for exploring architectural issues through a bounded design exercise. By deflecting away from the reasons of the built space/ architecture and reducing possible design solutions to simple elements students were encouraged to think about spatial relations. These explorations were conducted through a series of explorative physical models which eventually lead to the final design. The form thus designed tried to create an “environmental narrative” - a story which unfolds through space. The fludity of the form designed allowed the user to walk through a wide gamut of experiences.

15

HEIRARCHY AND SPLITTING THE MASS: Following the contours, a visual heirarchy was formed in the design in the form of different levels. The single circular mass was split into parts, depending on the functions.

CREATING OF SPILL OUT SPACES: Creation of the “place” not only in terms of the built mass but also various landscaped spaces which act as public plazas.

PROJECTIONS COMPETITION

2016

BRIEF : The project deals with the challenge for creating an intervention that would affect all aspects of people, place, space, as well as design. The notion of parallel projection was to be incorporated in the design. After understanding the brief a skywalk for the city of Mehrauli was devised, a place well known for the “Qutub Minar� a famous monument constructed during the Mamluk Dynasty during the early 13th century. Since then this monument has remained as the one and only identity this city has. So, the idea of this design was to create a walkway which would showcase the other elements of the city such as its food culture, local shops and the other histroical structures that in time were over shadowed by the Qutub Minar.

DESIGN OF COMMUNITY SCHOOLS: CATALYST FOR SOCIAL UPLIFTMENT THROUGH COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION AND INCLUSION

RESEARCH QUESTION How community school design for the economically weaker sections of the society have been designed to create better learning environments, while they also act as catalysts for community participation that leads to social upliftment?

ABSTRACT Designing learning environments is a vital part of primary school architecture. An educational facility should actively support learning processes, which not only would lay the foundation for human development, but also contribute to social, economic benefits in the long run. This paper argues, that a school built with budgetary restrictions does not necessarily need to compromise on its design and should provide for educative spaces which enable multiple modes of teaching and learning. Educational facilities that are built to cater to the economically weaker sections of the society carry the responsibility of facilitating and bringing about a social change - which is as pivotal as the education of the students. These schools have an untapped potential to bring together the community, which can be the first step towards their social upliftment. Finally, a systematic approach is established where it is finally posited that we need to involve the community at different stages of school design in order to establish the dynamic nature of architecture for education.

BRIEF: The competition was a challenge to bring together two prestigious art forms - a 2D composition in the form of art which was to be devised for the provided song. The outcome was to portray emotions, lyrics and the notes the song stood for without any textual material. The song so provided was the Hanuman Chalisa – a Hindu devotional hymm dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Two compositions were hence, developed – one which portrayed the music through colours, and one through its monochromatic intensities. The first composition was monochromatic, using different intensities of pencil stippling to portray the message of the song. The side profile of Lord Hanuman was highlighted as the focal point. The other elements were symbolic of what Hanuman Chalisa stands for - his strength, courage, wisdom, celibacy, devotion to Lord Rama. The second composition goes to show Hanuman Chalisa with a different perspective – the eye of the God is the focal point which reflects his love and devotion for Gods Ram and Sita. While the eye represented the world of the mortals, heaven and hell were depicted by his blue wavy hair and fire respectively. DEVELOPMENT OF COMPOSITIONS
