ARCHITECTURE AS AN EXPERIENCE “The idea was to recreate the experience of the market making it more efficient, inclusive and porous.”


ARCHITECTURE AS AN EXPERIENCE Year 5 , Design Dissertation The thesis is a study of various dense urban fabrics in the city of Mumbai. Tools like “derive” which is a form urban wandering and mental mapping and “detournement” which is the physical representation of these urban wanderings were used to create several maps. The dense urban fabrics which were mainly markets of the city were studied focusing on the “dispersed processes” which took place in each of them. Putting these dispersed processes together formed the experience of the place and gave it a sense of character. One such fabric was the area of Zaveri Bazaar, the oldest and most important jewellery market in the city. Zaveri bazaar has dwindled in the past few years due to decrease in efficiency in these dispersed processes. The idea was to recreate the experience of the market making it more efficient, inclusive and porous.

RESEARCH & CONCEPT


Maps reveal how people perceive space, property , identity , life cycle , popular perceptions and beyond ; and, as such , narrate even a “plot� literary and cultural developments , including travel narratives , economic developments , and burgeoning nationalism. Maps shape minds and control the imagination; and yet they also order the known and the unknown.


“Mumbai became a junction for transfer of goods, capital and people and a switchgear of information : less of a workshop & more of a counting house.”

Markets and Bazaars have played a very big role in the city of Mumbai. They are hubs of culture and traditions that have boosted the city’s economy as a whole. They become nodes which make the dense urban fabric of the city and give it character.


SITE 1

SARDAR VALLABHAI PATEL ROAD Sardar Vallabhai Road is an east-west corridor that connects the city from shore to shore, this belt has multiple small scale industries. The area was first studied as a whole maapping the different dispersed processes which went on in the area and then mainly focussing on the metal industry of Kumbharwada and Khetwadi.


SITE 2

WHOLE SALE TEXTILE MARKET The wholesale textile market comprises of 3 sub-markets namely the Mangaldas Market, Swadeshi Market and the M.J. Market. Each market has its individual process of loasding, un-loading, buying and selling but at the same time all 3 are very well connected almost forming a weave.


SITE 3

ZAVERI BAZAAR Zaveri Bazaar, is one of the oldest jewellery markets and the biggest gold supplier, it has a strong impact on the history and economy of the city of Mumbai. The jewellery market has multiple workshops, living spaces, retail shops and all shops encompassing jewellery making. It is currently dwindling due to poor living and working conditions which is in turn making people leave the area. This therefore has an impact on the processes which is making them inefficient. The idea was to recreate the experience of Zaveri Bazaar making it more efficient, porous, inclusive and connected.

LIVING PODS

These forms were combined together to create diverse spaces, which initially started off as a façade element but through the design process developed into habitable spaces, “The Living Pods”.


LIVING PODS Year 4 , Design Studio , Colaba , Mumbai Artist - in - Residency Picking elements - Window and Balcony

The Design Studio started with a Façade study around the city, documenting it, in the form of pictures and diagrams. The “Extruded Window” which is a blend of both a window and a balcony was the element that was created through this. Different scales and geometries were used to explore the potential of this element, which led to selecting four different variants of triangular forms. These forms were combined together to create diverse spaces, which initially started off as a façade element but through the design process developed into habitable spaces, “The Living Pods”.

Window + Balacony = Extruded window

The program, selected was of an “Artist–in–Residency”, wherein these pods were the living and work spaces for the artists. Different programmes such as common studios, art galleries, exhibition spaces, shops and cafes were created for them to interact both amongst themselves as well as with the general public. The emphasis of these pods was more so on creating an amiable space for the artist, which was designed bearing in mind the position of the northern light with respect to each pod.

INSTITUTE FOR ENVIORMENTAL SCIENCES The Salk Instiute designed by Louis Kahn is a functional institution which brings with it a monastic feeling. Kahn took advantage of the site’s tranquil surroundings and abundant natural light in his design, which was about an “intellectual retreat” that broke away from the definition of what an ideal institute was supposed to be. For me, designing an institute for environmental science was to create comfortable spaces for the students living and studying there and for them to have experiences of a secluded as well as an interactive space.


INSTITUTE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES Year 4, Design Studio , Goregaon East , Mumbai The Salk Instiute designed by Louis Kahn is a functional institution which brings with it a monastic feeling. Kahn took advantage of the site’s tranquil surroundings and abundant natural light in his design, which was about an “intellectual retreat” that broke away from the definition of what an ideal institute was supposed to be. For me, designing an institute for environmental science was to create comfortable spaces for the students living and studying there and for them to have experiences of a secluded as well as an interactive space. The design process lend itself to understanding these comfortable spaces, in terms of light and wind and its effect in the space, by making a series of study models. Study models also comprised of taking inspiration from the Human Lung to bring out the finer nuances and emphasize on the breather, which eventually developed into the negative space of the design. The process models were then taken to site to understand the same and to bring out the optimum amount of light and wind within the design. Design development then involved bringing out the three main branches of the institutional departments which were Forestry, Air quality Management and Ecology, to lend itself to create individual as well as cohesive spaces for each of them. These spaces all included laboratories, classrooms, workshops, fabrication studios and lecture halls for each. The design also comprised of a common library, computer laboratory, mess, fitness center and recreational rooms to facilitate interaction amongst the students.

CONNECTOR Year 3, Design Studio , Parle West , Mumbai Mixed-use housing The design studio was aimed at creating a mixed used housing project in Parle West. As an area, it has transformed from being a very residential and community driven area to becoming very commercial in the recent years, This transition has in turn diminished the area, of its open and recreational spaces. The design started off with an idea to carve out the open spaces from the existing built area so to create relief spaces. As the design developed different programs such as an educational center, students hostel, library, day care, community hall, activity center, grocery stores, dairy shops, which became plug – ins to the housing which was the core program of the project. The final design had a dynamic public plaza surrounded by the various programs, which would bring in a strong sense of being in a community which this area always had, that would in turn act as a connector for the area.

The area of Malad(w) lacked street connectivity and open spaces. The existing open spaces were neglected and were encroached upon. For example, few were used up for parking or for dumping waste. The idea was to make the existing spaces interesting and approachable, introduce more open and green spaces,activate street edges and introduce street furniture in the scape depending on the character of the area. The selected site started at malad station, passing through the high-rise commercial and residential area ending at the creek. The street patterns and the scale of open spaces would keep changing according to the context. Focus was also to increase the connectivity of streets. The introduction of green corridor for a shaded pedestrian walkway, cycling track , internal roads, pick up and drop off points etc. Creation of junctions and making them interesting by introducing activities or street furniture. Major parameters were minimum walking distance, accessibility and legibility.The derived benefit was the intersection of these various pathways. The change in experience when you walk from a busy street to a quiet shaded lane. The change in experience when you walk from a hard paved road to a green corridor. It was about creating an experience for a person walking through the site.

COMPLEXITY IN NATURAL NON-LIVING SYSTEMS Investigatingvarious complex systems through a process of diagrams and models to devise a dynamic installation based on specific structural complexities and their reactions to changing environmental conditions.


COMPLEXITY IN NATURAL NON-LIVING SYSTEMS Year 2, Design Workshop Complexity in Non-living Systems in Nature The Second Year Design Workshop focussed on structural and functional complexities found in non-living systems in nature. These include geological formations, rocks, minerals, salt, sand &quartz. Complex systems are signified by two or more components that are distinct and integrated.Systems in nature exhibit an inherent complex structure based on their process of formation. These systems react with dynamic environmental factors (such as heat, pressure and agents such as wind, water, light etc) that cause functional complexity so as to achieve a natural state of equilibrium.The studio investigated various complex systems through a process of diagrams and models to devise a dynamic installation based on specific structural complexities and their reactions to changing environmental conditions.

HONEYCOMB WEATHERING occurs in sandstone. It is influenced by the salinity, moisture and sunlight levels. Sunlight being the key factor determines the opening sizes. Starting off as isolated pits the size gradually increases in accordance to the sunlight. The ones exposed to the direct sun form larger openings. These pits never intersect with each other or combine to form bigger ones. This is due to the presence of the zone of influence. It is a simultaneous process resulting in an uneven framework. This formed the basic concept for the design .The natural rock surface develops into several different forms, hexagons being the most common and stable . With a simple pulling mechanism with co - related elements the installation moderates the size and charecter of the opening (pore) being formed. The material used are deodar wood, MS rods and plates and nylon thread.

BREATHING SPACES Year 2 , Design Studio , Bhuleshwar, Mumbai Primary school

Wadis Breather spaces of Bhuleshwar

“Narrow Streets and roads made narrow by human and vehicular traffic, are strikingly contrasted by the silent and often spacious interiors of these wadis”.* Bhuleshwar, one of Bombay’s oldest areas, has an extremely dense fabric. Walking through the crowded and chaotic streets, made me realize how the “wadis”; large community halls where the courtyard being the central architectural element; became the breather spaces of the area as opposed to the stark contrast that was seen on the streets. Various wadis of the area were then studied by creating mass and void diagrams and models to understand the importance of the courtyard. The design developed by creating different combinations of mass and void that were further enhanced to reach the final design. The Program was that of a Primary School, where spaces such as classrooms, library, activity halls, staff rooms, all looked into the courtyards of different sizes as it was the central element of the design. Since all the windows looked into the courtyard it brought in light and ventilation into the space for a more comfortable experience for the kids to learn and play.

TRANSMOGRIFY Transmogrify is a skyscraper that aims to self evolve in order to compliment the external changes. It’s sustainable yet not permanent in form.


TRANSMOGRIFY Evolo Skyscraper Competition 2016 Junkspace is the space created by piling matter on top of matter, cemented to form a solid. A space which has the ability to mutate over time when required, is free of junkspace.The city of Mumbai has been inoculated by the virus of junkspace. For the longest time the mills were the economic reinforcements of the city. Large lands were allocated for production thereby increasing job opportunities. There was a major population influx in the city due to this industrial boom. In the early 1980’s the mill workers called on a strike for higher wages eventually leading to their lockdown. These spaces turned into abandoned spaces and lay as the remains of modernization. One of the well known mill lands was the Bitia mills started in 1905 which closed shop in the 1980’s after a strike between the owners and workers. This area located in the heart of the city soon got revamped to form a mall and residential complex. The mall now called High Street Phoenix has been successful but with the growth of e-commerce what is the future of such a colossal space? Does it become a junkspace? Transmogrify is a skyscraper that aims to self evolve in order to compliment the external changes. It’s sustainable yet not permanent in form. The Transmogrify helps to curb the unplanned urban sprawl. It’s structural flexibility allows the walls and slabs to be re-arranged as required. The walls and slabs are stacked and move to organize themselves to suit the program. It’s an adaptive design capable of intelligent growth through the self-regulation of it’s own system. The skyscraper as such has no shelf date and can continue changing infinitely. The term junkspace is versed by Rem Koolhas in his publication Junkspace

Phoenix Mills, in the commercial district of Lower Parel, Mumbai is a site which has undergone continuous change over the past decade, from being Bitia Mills in 1905, to High Street Phoenix and the St. Regis Hotel.

“If space-junk is the human debris that litters the universe, junk-space is the residue mankind leaves on the planet.” - Rem Koohlas

The city constantly resonates with economic, social, climatic and cultural changes. The adaptiveness of the building averts stagnation. The movable walls and slabs facilitate modification for possible future scenarios. The current need is to bring production back to its roots yet providing sufficient housing recreation, storage.

HERITANCE KANDALAMA


HERITANCE KANDALAMA Study trip documentation, Srilanka 2016 The following drawings were drafted on a study trip to Sri Lanka which focused on Geoffery Bawa’s work. Multiple elements and aspects of the building were studied. The skillfully framed vistas and how the form hugs the terrain on which it is built. These aspects were documented in the form of sketches , axonometrics , plans and sections . The subtely of the minimalism in building detailing effectively foregrounds the drama of the cliff - side topography and breathtaking views. The Kandalama Hotel is located in the central dry zone of Sri Lanka , unlike many of Bawa’s other buildings on humid oceanfront sites , and thus its design must adapt to different climate . While pitched roofs are a necessity in coastal areas that recieve heavy rain , the flat roofs at Kandalama function well in a dry climate and are less - material intensive.

Plan Detailed section

The Kandalama Hotel is considered one of Bawa’s most important works as it showcases so clearly Bawa’s talent for creating affective spatial sequences and architectural narrative integrated into an undeveloped landscape.
