Periphery Within

Design of Indian High Commission in Sri Lanka

Can a building that meets rigorous security standards also have an aesthetic appeal? If so, at what cost? Modern embassy design revolves around this question. As security measures escalate, providing a design that associates with the public becomes a paradox. Embassies should set the tone for smooth engagement of two cultures. Architecture like every other art serves to express and keep world’s development in motion, taking care of the identity of the structure to be built. This design delves into the concept of symbolic representation of democratic virtues and the choice of an architectural idiom to represent India abroad. The research and analysis in this thesis also explores how the image, program, and site of an embassy can be used as instruments of policy to promote the representing nation’s political and social agenda.

SITE PLANNING KEY PLAN

Sri Lankan site planning principles of time, life and space are introduced in the design of the cultural park. The site is zoned in such a way that maximum use is made of the available views. The nawala bird sanctuar y, golf club land and the canal together render the site with excellent views.

- alchemy of time and space. - 30x30 terracota panels. - takes advantage of the site’s natural wind speed plus the channelling effect created by the void space. - movement of panels adds dynamism to the otherwise static built environment. - constant movement makes the public space more engaging.

- changing orientation of fins gives a dynamic outlook and allows only diffused sunlight into the building, thus reducing solar heat gain. - reduced south light solar heat due to placement of service cores on the south of the building. - finned structure is receptive to the adjacent bird sanctuar y, with reduced use of glazing on the facade. - helps emphasise on the verticality of the building. - helps create a balance between the level of concealment and transparency.

A timber contoured feature wall runs through the entire east wing of the office complex.

The visa section in the west wing holds a funnelling stained glass structure piercing through the floors below.

A doubly curved brick wall defines the interpretation area at the entrance of the west wing.

Native Indian Techniques like Dhokra for handrails and door knobs and traditional fabric are introduced to accentuate the Indian emotion of the space.

The feature holds 29 strips of timber that are carved with the wood craftmanship techniques of the 29 states of India.

They filter coloured light through the floors, thereby enlightening the entire space around it.

urban retrofitting Analysis and Design of P.H Road and its surroundings.

Increasing levels of population growth currently challenge Chennai’s high density, horizontal, suburban form to fold inward and build upon itself in new ways and the city has embraced transit oriented development (TOD) as a strategy for accommodating this new growth at even higher densities. This project explores urban design futures through the lens of the TOD and aims to create a site specific model. It also studies the potential of urban design and urban housing to weave vacant lands, their urban context and the urban communities surrounding them. An effort is made to reduce social polarization, blur the physical boundary of public housing, and make the neighborhood a desirable place to live. The first half of this project focuses on a background study and provides a concise analysis of the issues to be addressed on the site. The second half provides design guidelines for future development and an urban design for the site area.

The structure, amenities and infrastructure of the given area were studied through mapping and sampling methods. The analysis and derivations from this data as well as the socio-cultural data were used to propose retrofit strategies for the site

The pulla avenue and the poonamallee high road fall under the continuous building area. Hence, there is significant difference in the scale of structures present in both the areas, even though they have the same road width of 18m. Also plot extents are very small preventing the structures from growing vertically.. The structures along the poonamallee high road are very densely packed and do not have any breathing space

The development along this road has reached the saturation point such that further development can happen only if there is a change in the rules of dcr. Considering the scope for multistorey buildings in the area, its can be seen that its being currently under used. Hence a change in dcr rules is required to remove the continuous building area along this road and group the plots to form bigger plots so that further vertical development becomes possible.

3.Transit stations house an average of 50 bus numbers which calls for the redesign of transit stations and the systems involved to reduce the congession hence caused 4.Redesign of Aminjikarai market as an achoring element in the locality

pedestrian bulb-outs for street vending

UNDERPASS RESTORATION

5.Lack of street elements calls for the reconstruction of the road stretch along with the expansion of road. The Anna arch is the primary anchoring landmark in the location. The current proposal and execution of the two flyovers and underbridge will have a huge impact on the circulation at the Anna Arch - N.M Road Node.

av i a ry a rc h i t e ct u r e Reactivating Ecosensitive Landscapes using Tensegrity Structures

Birds are an invaluable part of our shared heritage in cities, wilderness, and even in domestic settings. They are not only delightful to observe, classify, and photograph but also indicators of our natural and cultural health. However, urbanization and humans’ need for space are continually increasing, thus leaving little room for avian habitat. This project tries to address these issues and provide a hospitable habitat for the species using tensegrity structures. Tensegrity is a relatively new principle (50 years old) based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension, in such a way that the compressed members (usually bars or struts) do not touch each other and the prestressed tensioned members (usually cables or tendons) delineate the system spatially. The project aims to prove the application of such an atypical structure in ecosensitive architecture.

N at i o n a l i n s t i t u t e f o r wat e r s p o r t s , g o a A Holistic Water Sports Facility designed by M:OFA Studios, Delhi

Being one of its kind of an institute in Asia, the project has ben designed to strive a dynamic relationship between the sports player and the sea through its architectural language and spaces.It was commissioned in 2010 to M:OFA Studios through an international competition organised by NIWS-GSIDC, Goa. The NIWS has been setup by the Minstry of Tourism as an ‘apex’ body for training, education, consultancy and research to usher in an era of leisure-water sporting segment in the country. The design brief stated the development of NIWS as an Iconic building. The articulation of the temporary yet adventurous moment or a passage in time between the surfers setting foot into the sea to setting foot out of it, forms the Architecture of the Building.

Furniture design A Series of Furniture Designed for a Residence in Surat by Design Ni Dukaan, Ahmedabad

This side table was a part of a series of furniture custom designed for a residence in Surat. Repitition of a delicate element and a peacock inspired colour palette gave direction to the pieces designed. A lot of stress was given in acheiving the perfect colour and edge details of the designed elements.The brief demanded a simple yet elegant piece for the living room. The colours and textures of the Chevron pattern and the teak base compliment the brass legs. While practicing as an intern in Design Ni Dukaan, I was assigned to prepared drawings and 3D visuals for the approved designs. Regular visits to the workshop helped me understand the level of detail that goes into every piece.
