SUSTAINABLE TALL BUILDINGS
CENTRE FOR ARTS AND CRAFTS, PONDICHERRY
The site is located in Ariyankuppam in Pondicherry. Adjoining the site is the Thengaithittu Estuary overviwed with lush green trees around. Pondicherry is a tourist destination spot with varied attractions cultural, social, religious and mixed use developments with good connectivity and has strong sense of French and Chola architecture styles. The design is carried over by the arts and crafts of Pondicherry defining the transitional spaces blended with Dravidian style of architecture in form and shape.
The main approach is towards the 10m wide East coast road. The vendors at present use these empty lands and the site has been used by the children near the Bharathiyar school. To divide the traffic from the main road the site access has been shifted to 7m wide lane for crafts and 10m lane for arts centre.
WAR MEMORIAL, BANGLADESH
The idea of lost history remains intact as generations take over. During its partition with India, the rebellion before the liberation war has been lost. The British ruled Bengal for 186 years and today they stand in times of our rebellious history as long forgotten heroes. In order to bring back this legacy, a Memorial for the rebels of land is being proposed.
The timeline shows the before of Bengal gallery, 17th century gallery, 18th century gallery, 9th century gallery, Bangladesh gallery. Sherjosen, Pritilota Waddedar, Nirmol Sen, Kudiram Titumir are the warriors of that time. To reflect the essence of a revolt during that time the design shows the clarity of movement of 1971. Architecture serves the nation by its service expressing countryâ€™s idealness.
GROUND FLOOR PLAN
MULTICOMFORT HOUSING, MILAN
Milan is undergoing a new developmental changes by 2030. The project implies 3 design considerations as Plot A, Plot B and Plot C. The main vision of the project is to provide an existing community with upgraded energy efficient homes connected to a new Multi-comfort House Development through dynamic public realm and upgraded transport hub.
Plot A has new mixed use development, Plot B has the renovation strategy and increase the comfort and well-being of he inhabitants. And Plot C is the connection of Plot A and Plot B integrating public spaces and transport interchange. The design is created with unified upshot link between the three plots with respect to environmental and visual connection between the spaces.
Defining the pedestrian and mobility network between Plot A and Plot B evolves with the water feature as the connecting link which takes over the inhabitants to use the linking spaces. In order to break the monotony in circulation path, activity spaces are introduced to balance the visual sequence.
Plot C The Plot C work as a connection in the whole project. The design aims to break the traditional social life pattern and urban context. Through different levels of spatial form with various activities such as bicycling, street market, urban farming, library, 360degree restaurant view and other recreational spaces enrich the daily entertainment life of local residents and increasing the attraction of Crescenzago by combining the new building with the existing one. A flowing water feature is designed to promote the revitalization of canals and the traditional boat market, as an Italian experience.
Plot A The building is located in Southeast of downtown, Milan. It is designed to meet the growing housing requirements of local residents and to meet the social life of local communities. The building is a mixed use development with five storeys. The ground and first floor serve commercial or community services, and the rest serve the apartment. The design is concerned with ample natural daylighting and ventilation. Modular housing units are implemented with projections depending on the building orientation. The last two floors are sandwiched as breathing space for the inhabitants and driven out with community farming in central space.
Lighting levels in courtyard
The maximum illuminance created is above 2190 lux which meets the lighting guidelines. And overall illuminance is above 4100 lux which crosses the minimum threshold of 3000. (DF- 20%). The average daylight factor falls within the uniformity ratios. The outdoor spaces are provided with landscaping and shading elements in exposed corridors which gives a comfort strategy and improves the visual quality of the building zone. Hence community farms are raised in the courtyards which provides shade and act as natural filters to the building.
Lighting levels in each floor
Daylight factor levels
Lighting levels in service cores
The study shows intense natural lighting near the service core with respect to different position of the sun at different timings, observes that there is no direct light falling into the space, but just a part of its reflection is seen clearly at 12am and 3pm on the summer solstice. The design proposes slit openings along the wall and roof creating a visual sense in the play of light and the amount of light scattered is neither over lit or under lit having daylight factor greater than 2%.
Lighting intensity in living room
From IES and Sefaira simulation, the room gets good amount of natural lighting and there isnâ€™t any necessity of artificial lighting during daytime. However, in months of December daylight factor is <-2, in such cases, interior illuminance level has to be raised.
Plot B The Plot B is an existing residential apartment which undergoes poor heating and cooling pattern with less or no natural ventilation. The model has been simulated with REVIT to determine the existing lighting and energy levels. The red marked areas induce less or no natural lighting which is compensated by proposing a connecting corridor with semi open louvres and the vertical transportation near every units has been removed with a double level open breathing space between the buildings. All windows are double glazed with a U value 0.28w/sq.m. K.
SUSTAINABLE TALL BUILDINGS, JAKARTA
The site is located on a high rising edge of the Kebon Kachang Kampung. The design aims to meet the social, cultural and environmental needs of the citizens and residents of Jakarta. Jakarta lacks open spaces and greenery with inadequate social connectivity. The tall perforated matrix form allows interior and public spaces to get good natural daylighting and ventilation. The building aims to meet these problems and bringing up solutions.
The unique feature are the helical gardens at the centre twirling vertically throughout the building expressing visual comfort and also used for rain water harvesting. The organic feature with public galleries bring people to interact positively and creates recognisable identity. The structural helix divides the building into two parts with a main core each side. The facades are inspired by the strangled vines in a tree, biomimicry informing the structure.
Communal living & Vertical farming
The site is on the high rising edge due to flooding, near the bus and metro routes in Jakarta. The wide shallow site is oriented 15deg from East-West. The stilt floor is completely dedicated as a public space for green park and traditional Kakilima markets street food courts. A connecting bridge to the neighbouring Kampung area gives easy access for the residents to access the public market.

I have taken my internship programme in Madras Terrace Architects and KP Planners and Builders for a year. I had an opportunity to work on many residential and commercial projects and participated in a research project for the rejuvenation of Coovum River. I had a couple of client interaction during site visits and learnt many Estimation and management works.
