VIEWS Design for a habitat to serve the surviving population of a calamity struck earth using a single remaining natural element like water, earth etc. The calamity and natural element were left to our discretion. The concept: Considering that the glaciers have all melted due to global warming and the only land left on the map of world is the peak of Himalaya we proposed a habitat for the survivors. People would live in rock cut caves with only one fresh water source would exist i.e. by cirque, natural phenomena. Aqua lifts were proposed for vertical movement in the habitat. Other than these skeletons of big mammals were incorporated as aerodynamic features of the habitat.

3rd year Design for a five star hotel The concept: has been inspired from the root of a tree which lives for many

ages even after its trunk has been cutdown. Accordingly a sustainable hotel was designed whose various areas were connected via a root like system just like that of a tree.
