PW REDEVELOPMENT OF CHANDNI CHOWK Typology: Location: Year: Office:

Urban Design Old Delhi, Capital City (India) 2018-2019 Pradeep Sachdeva Design Associates (PSDA)

Chandni Chowk was one of the most important streets in the historical city of Shahjahanabad, Delhi. Through the Mughal, colonial, and post-Independence era, the street has been a bustling market place and the epicentre of Shahjahanabad. The redevelopment plan intends to make it a “great street� once again. It intends to decongest the area, facilitate free pedestrian movement, provide basic facilities, enhance greenery around the place while showcasing its rich heritage and culture. The project, first launched in 2004 following the intervention of the Delhi High Court, the execution started from 1st December 2018 and now is nearing completion, thanks to the efforts put in by the stakeholders involved, in all 24 of them, including the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, Archaeological Survey of India, Chandni Chowk Sarv Vyapar Mandal, Delhi Police, Delhi Transport Corporation, Delhi Fire Service among others.

3D Rendering, Facade Designing Auroville, Tamil Nadu 2015 Play Design Studio

Observing all the sun positions, when seen in the section to understand the movement of sun at different intervals of time, from which you can calculate at what angle sunlight is falling on the panels. Through this, the maximum sizes of the perforation on panels can be calculated and the sunlight can be controlled as per required lux levels of light intesity inside the building space.


a a. 3D Photoshop Renders


Calculating all the maximum perforation sizes according to the solar impact on each facade to avoid direct sunlight inside the building. This can even achieve the required amount of light intensity inside building by changing the percentage of perforations at different heights of a single panel. Perforations are designed according to the limit set as per its maximum size. Panel as a unit is also divided into seven parts for its structural strength . January

SOUTH FACADE

Considering all climatic factors and the existing walls and fenestrations in the building, a pattern is created which is differentiated by changing the percentage of perforations in the required places. This pattern being climatically filtered creates many designing posibilities for all the sides of building facades.


OPTION-1 OPTION-2 OPTION-3

35% of perforation 20% of perforation

SOUTH FACADE

Patterns are created on terracotta panels to define the floating cuboid mass on the first floor by changing percentage of perforations on panels. Panels with 35% of perforation are at the places where wind, sunlight and openings all come together and the rest of the place is perforated to 20% of panel.

Hands-on Material Workshop Auro University, Surat. November 2017 True Scale Design Studio

This Intense technique - based workshop on making, covers material properties, behaviour and tooling, to arrive at live scale execution of an architectural form using Bamboo. This workshop is a hands-on undertaking to understand bamboo as a material and the ways in which it can be employed in building architecture through details and fabrication of components coming together in an assembly. It emphasizes on developing ways of working with material through working prototypes as well as sessions along with artisans leading to explorations relationship of parts coming together in an assembly through set of details.

Hands-on Workshop, Documentation Bir, Himachal Pradesh June 2015 Dharamalaya Institute

This is an amalgamation of the sustainable living workshop along with the documentation done at Dharmalaya institute for compassionate living near Bir, Himachal Pradesh. It attempts to give an insight into on site explorations along with the techniques that an individual deals while making the built form at various stages of its construction. An architecture that is closer to the people, the environment and the resources of a place and the one that works with natural building materials and techniques which are found locally to the site is eco-friendly and meaningful to the nature of that place. This way of construction is healthier for the environment as it responds to the climate, topography and natural forces. These methods of construction are sustainable and they are more relevant for environment, living and practice.

RT A D A P TAT I O N O F T R A D I T I O N A L A S P E C T S O F HOUSE FORMS: IN THE SELECTED WORKS OF LAURIE BAKER Typology: Research Thesis Location: Trivandram, Kerala Year: 2017 • To understand the adaptation of traditional aspects of built forms in the contemporary architecture works of Laurie Baker, • To define the traditional architecture and its advantages for the present time. • To understand the context of the case study with the aspects such as it geographical context, climate, its historical background, etc. • The Life of Laurie Baker and its influences on his works. • To understand the tangible aspects that defines a traditionally adapted contemporary regional house form A set of constants and variables have been identified in the adaptation of traditional house form into the selected works of Laurie baker. The level of adaptation observed in the small scale material and elements is stronger as it deals with the physical aspects of the house forms making it more noticeable for an observer. Adaptation of the spatial organization is subtle in nature as one doesn’t directly imitate what was happening earlier. This research helped understanding that in this technologically advancing world, how the works of Laurie Baker become adaptable at different levels and take only the things that are necessary and fits into their environment by modifying or changing it completing. Laurie baker in his work getting inspired from the traditional house forms and transforming it as for the communities in this world which in itself are constantly changing and evolving.
