CURRICULUM VITAE EDUCATION

2016-17

MY VISON "A house can have integrity, just like a person; and just as seldom." Howard Roark Architect These words coming from the closest approximation to an ideal architect have been refueling my energy supplies and inspiration for long and heavens know you need it. I am a Bachelor of Architecture, fourth year student from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, aiming to grasp the innate sensitivity to the built environment by pursuing the never ending quest for the most contextual, the perfect and most suitable material. This is an era of energy crisis and building designs must reflect it. Building technology today should be a comprehensive and intelligent thought process of the subconscious of the designer which inculcates energy efficiency (starting from the stage of material selection itself) as a spirit and not something appended to a building design for star rating agencies. Being in the process of evolving my design language I wish to do away the repercussions ofthe industrial revolution on building technology and seek low embodied energy materials for a start. This never ending puruit of the two cosmic principles of truth and beauty have developed my vison to explore more and more natural materials. . Natural building materials for me as an architect have been a monocle to look at the future though the past

CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN

The Apartment in Buchstrasse was designed as part of ‘Construction and Design’ module undertaken during my exchange semester at HSLU, Switzerland. The building is to be of a mixed use with shops on the ground floor and apartments on the 4 floors above. The context of one of the oldest Swiss town of Lucerne was a very challenging task. Quality spaces have been derived and united by the very typical pattern of voids and fills on the Brick façade. The brick pattern speaks of the plasticity of facades of European buildings making a very contemporary and modern statement all the while. The loggia and the bathroom have been united by the pattern and the flushed glass modern adaptation of the traditional erker balances the façade as a whole. The final output was a 4m x 1.5 m sheet reprinted with ethenol rubbing technique. Also a very typical methodod using scale model photography along with Photoshop as rendering as a tool was explored as a part of this project.


PRISON

The design tries to inculcate the Indian context and living style within in every form. Catering to facors as inward facing society for females , less requirement of maintenance through common washrooms which also help in kepping a check on security . A dormitory module inculdes 4 wards with a capacity of 6 inmates each. Also the design is made flexible enough for future expansion to do away the biggest problem of overcrowding in prisons as being faced by the Tihar Complex in New Delhi and many others around the globe.

Total freedom/mobility given to a prisoner depends on the freedom zoning and its corresponding scale.

The design process involed two case studies from different timelines of prison design and a live case study of the Tihar Prison Complex in New Delhi, India. The three case studies approach the design from very different contexts and perspectives. The following tables are a compilation of my design research and a comparative analysis of the case studies. The inferences drawn have been a major design guiding attribute along with the natural topography of the site. The site was located in the army cant area of Roorkee, India. DETAIL

SITE PLAN

These three trees on site have been incorporated into the workshop spaces on the first level following the natural topography and with the intention of retaining the natural vegetation of the site as much as possible. The workshop spaces are to be used for carrying out the rehab policies. These keep the inmates busy and train them in vernacular vocations as Ringal Bamboo Craft and Kumaon art in the context of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. These policy designs also create emplyment for the artisans trained in the particular vocation and help to preserve the vernacular art forms.

In accordance to the context of female juvenille special wards were designed to fullfill the needs of young mothers. Such a facility has never been introduced before in any of the juvenille homes in India. These special wards house 2 inmates and have space for 2 cribs. These are in immediate reach of the Prsion Medical Complex and seperated ofrom the other inmates.

My internship inculded doing working drawings and CSEB bond pattrens for the following: Project: Sharanam, Phase I I Client: Sri Aurobindo Society Location: Pondicherry, India Sharnam is an ongoing project (in its second phase) of a village development centre for a charitable foundation, the Sri Aurobindo Society. The project is funded by Auto Bajaj Limited on the platform of their corporate social responsibility program. Phase II inculded double storey dormitories for participants coming from outstaion who can stay on campus for a longer time. Also during the course of my internship I was a part of the following hands on workshops offered by AVEI •CSEB - production, blockyard management and application •AVD Intensive - stability & optimisation study and construction of arches vaults and domes using CSEB •Ferrocement - material exploration and application

Auroville Earth Institute is one of the world’s top centres for excellence in earthen architecture. It works to revive traditional skills and to link ancestral and vernacular traditions of raw earth construction with the modern technology of stabilised earth. AVEI aims to make extensive use of raw earth as the main building material, thereby using a local resource, which can help developing technologies that are energy saving, eco-friendly and sustainable. The main research and development is focussed on minimising the use of steel, cement and reinforced cement concrete


Ferrocement is a 1:3 ratio mix of cement and sand with chicken mesh reinforcemnet. This matreial assumes a small thickness and hence can be used for thin shell structures and free forms.

ps (x6)

During my internship in AVEI I worked on working Channel drawings of precast ferrocemet elements forFCthe then Interlocking end ongoing project Sharnam (Phase II) situated in Pondichery, India. These included copings, sills, partition wall panels, landings and steps.

Ferrocement exploration went further with hands on experience I got by attending the special Ferrocement Workshop conducted by AVEI. This included preparing the cement sand mix, preparing the chicken mesh reinforcement and casting interlocking gutter channels being used for roofing by AVEI and door panels. Also the workshop included how to prepare molds for casting various channel sections.

ROSALBA’S CLIENT

: Rosalba Cicirelle

LOCATION

: Baraka community, Auroville, India

DESCRIPTION

: Baraka is a reserve forest community in the heart of the international town of Auroville situated in Tamil Nadu, India. The client was an Italian lady living in India for over a decade. I was required to design a first floor two room extension for her to an existing baked brick house. Due to limited funds of construction natural materials were procured from the surroundings of the forest making timber and earth construction as a most viable option. My work majorly included doing the wattle and daub walls and the keith roofing design.

MATERIAL ITINERARY

Wattle •Casuarina tree stems for wattle frame as it is indegenious to Tamil Nadu region of India and works very good in bending compression. •Kerela Jute Rope made from coconut husk again indegenious to coastal regions of India •Small twigs picked up from the forest floor of Baraka Community for the wattle fill Daub •Earth excavated from surrounding areas and the excavation pit was made into a water collection band for the dwellers of baraka community •Lime was mixed with the excavated earth as a stabilising agent •Turmuric powder was added as it prevents rotting of the earth due to its anti bacterial properties and easily available through India •Cow Dung easily available from cattle farms of Tamil Nadu villages Keith Roof: Keith roofing was designed using a Casurina frame laid on with half split Pulmera Leaves. Pulmera is again an indegenious tree of coastal regions of South India and a vernacular roofing material due to its well kown water proofing properties. The construction was carried out by the traditional expert keith roofing workers of Tamil Nadu.
