SEPAL commercial centre [architecture design] individual project 19


Situated in Chandigarh, the architecture is highly influenced by its surroundings and reflects the ‘organic brutalism’ created by Le Corbusier through the intersection of built mass and green spaces across the city. This way the facade creates a pattern of hydroponic vegetation on exposed concrete. The pattern of which is parametrically evolved from a honeycomb grid. The built mass is covered with green roof for thermal insulation. The internal spatial organization is a jigsaw maze forming a 4x4x4 cube. Each modules create a unique horizontal and vertical spatial organization within the built mass which are used for various commercial activities, which is connected to either of the two vertical circulation towers on two opposite edges.

WAFFLE public furniture [digital design + fabrication] college team project 26


The objective of this project was to design a public furniture that would further contribute as an interaction space. The circular form optimizes the level of interaction creating equidistant enclosed space. The NURBS geometry allowed smooth modulation to the morphology of the circular tube. The modulations were according to the human anthropometry. The form was fabricated by cross fixing each panel of medium density fiberboard, cut with an electric handsaw. EXPLODED ISOMETRIC VIEW 27

COCOON art installation [digital design + fabrication] college team project 30


I explored the advanced computational methodologies for design and fabrication through various resources. This project was a part design exploration and was fabricated during the technical festival of my institute. The form was fabricated through surface development of the paper ply. The installation resides in the central courtyard of Architecture Department of my institute.

NORTH-EAST VIEW

The project is positioned in front of the future high court of Paris. It hosts a residential hotel and office space, along with various high-end services provided both on the ground and the terrace level. The building is bound with two materials: wood and glass, where wood provides the whole structural system and glass envelopes the structure like a light transparent skin. TOP VIEW

Clichy Batignolles was envisioned as an intelligent integration of Services, ecological balance, and adaptability. The hi-tech services serve to enhance the living experience, while the building is formulated to create ecological balance through wooden construction, controlled building envelope and systems for energy conservation. The interior spaces are flexible providing adaptability to the occupants as per their changing demands from time to time.

In terms of functionality the building is split in two halves. Each half has a unique facade, but unites in nature of material. The facade of Hotel has series of vertical glass prisms, along which, when the light filters and enters the interior space, it creates a sense of serenity and softness with wood. The glass facade of the office space has series of vertical fins inclined randomly to reflect most of the direct sunlight creating diffused light and controlled ventilation by trapping air between it’s two membranes.

I choose to include a few of my personal projects to better demonstrate my interests and skills. Each project follows an explorative approach which not only improves my design work flow, but also evolves my thought process. Most of the projects involve digital tools for designing and post processing 38
