Community Library Architectural Design Studio

Location: Chennai, India Awards: Special Mention - Reuben’s Trophy Medium: Pencil, technical pen and digital media

DESIGN PROCESS:

The process of seeing involves two convergence points where the light rays concentrate

1

2

The design for the library is derived from the concept of visual perception, considering the fact that the primary human sense used in a library by most people is vision. The two external factors involved in seeing are light and the distance of the object from the eye. The two points of convergence are used to derive the floor plan and the wall planes for elevation, similar to a perspective drawing with two vanishing points. This design also allows for natural daylighting in the north-south direction.

The two concentrated points are positioned on two ends of the site from which construction lines are projected 3

Projected lines from the two points are used to derive the floor plan layout and design the elevation planes

The elementary school is part of an educational campus, set within the surroundings of hills and farmlands. The building is designed as a low structure, considering the scale and safety of the young students and also minimising the intervention of built form in the topography. The cluster of blocks and the dynamic corridor which continuously changes in all three dimensions, invoke a sense of intrigue through geometry. Passive design approaches like maximising natural lighting, cooling and ventilation are the main design considerations for this building. The classrooms are REAR VIEW

The site is located on a busy high street in Bangalore. The simple structure is designed to acquire maximum floor space, following local policies and existing environmental conditions, yet also to be sustainable and function off-grid. It incorporates many innovative design approaches and elements to ensure that it meets the highest standards for energy efficiency and sustainability.

Passive design approaches such as earth air tunnel to cool the building, thermal insulation, natural lighting and renewable energy generation are targeted as primary design considerations. Locally sourced reusable and recycled materials also helped to achieve LEED certification.

REAR VIEW

The project won under a design competition, involves designing two separate buildings, for two different government organisations in the same site. Both the commercial high-rise structures are designed with high sustainability and green building standards. The building designed for KPCL, incorporates sustainability strategies like natural daylighting, water treatment and ventilation. The service floors of both buildings, are located in the basements and are connected, sharing the services and parking spaces. Apart from the open floor plans, open courtyards and green social spaces are included within the building to encourage interactivity and enhance the quality of the indoor space. An auditorium with 250 seating capacity is accommodated on the top floors with exclusive VIP lounge and a few suites. AERIAL VIEW

MASSING - PERSPECTIVE VIEW

An existing interlocked space with a magnolia tree, within FCH campus, used only for access at present. Brief was to design the space for a mixed group of people including staff and students for multi-use purpose (Work, rest & play). Deriving inspiration from the existing magnolia tree, the access and the layout are designed. The seating pods open-up like a flower with the magnolia tree in the middle as a focal point. The canopy structure for the sheltered recreational space and the roof structures of the seating pods are designed by projecting the branches of the magnolia tree, extending its pattern across the courtyard and enriching the character of the space with an existing feature. The design proposal includes sustainable urban drainage systems forming an integral part of the design with water directing people through the courtyard.

DESIGN ELEMENTS - METAL SHELTER

OPTIONAL FEATURES - METAL TREE & ROTATABLE SEATING PODS

The design requires the transplantation of existing tree to a lower pedestrian level to provide clear and level access through the courtyard. Considering the horticultural probability, a metal tree with climbers is proposed as an alternative to act as a focal feature and to retain the character of the space. The seating pods have optional rotating facility for kinetic energy microgeneration to make up for the energy consumed within the courtyard.

M.A. Landscape architecture dissertation; presents the opportunities, recommendations & guidelines to integrate clean and renewable energy micro-generation strategies in public spaces considering the aesthetics, functionality and also the efficiency criteria.

Master’s research paper; concentrates on retrofitting sustainability strategies and closed loop principles to an existing built environment to convert it into a self-sustaining space. As part of the research, the strategies discussed are applied to an existing campus and proved that it is a viable design proposal for creating a self-sustaining built environment.
