Project Type: Competition Location: Nizamabad, India Tools: Manual Drafting, Sketching, Dot Rendering Fall 2010: School of Planning & Architecture, Hyderabad Competition Organizer: Louis I Kahn Trophy, NASA, India Collaborators: Lowkya C, Jagadeesh Gorle, AV Revanth, Krishna Chaitanya L, Shalini Boddeda Project Brief

Challenge: To document the historic Indian industrial architecture (buildings and complexes) as exemplary of engineering design and creative manipulation of materials and forms. To understand how historic industrial buildings/ complexes were conceptually planned and designed reflecting a certain set of values (functional, technological, material, constructional etc). To understand present form, use, character, qualities of industrial buildings/ complexes. To research the industrial architecture’s ability to cope with the different challenges of today and its potential for revitalisation and adaptive re-use. The Nizam sugar factory is located at Shakkarnagar, Telangana, India. It has an average elevation of 357 metres with tropical wet and dry climate. It was built by the last Nizam of Hyderabad Mir Usman Ali Khan. It was constructed with the motto of ‘never stopping’. The site was discovered at the time when Nizam Sagar dam was constructed. It has rich soils for the cultivation of sugar cane. The construction of this factory was started in 1937 and completed in 1939. It occupies 22 acres of land.

A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable. - Louis Kahn
