Great Revolt of 1857 The Great Revolt of 1857 (also Indian rebellion of 1857, the Great uprising of 1857, the Great rebellion, Indian Sepoy mutiny) is regarded as India’s First War of Independence against the British rule. It was the most remarkable single event in the history of India after the establishment of British rule. It was the result of the century-old British rule in India. In comparison to the previous uprisings of the Indians, the Great Revolt of 1857 was of a greater dimension and it assumed almost an all-India character with participation of people from different sections of the society. This Revolt was initiated by the sepoys of the company. So it has been commonly termed as `Sepoy Mutiny‘. But it was not simply a revolt of the sepoys.

“There is always a war of being superior and the greed of powerful exploits the weaker ones , I dedicate my work to those who took the courage to become rebel and demanded the right of equality , fraternity and sovierginity . Their revolt was however was not successful but it leaves a message that if we people are united than no power can humilate us . The region has suffered lots of communal riots despite of being one of the finest example of communal unity which rose against britishers . I feel that that such monument will not only enrich the historical context of the city but also will have a deeper impact on the cultural climate and with which its citizen can alwas relate itself”
ite is Located on Delhi Dehradun National Highway in the heart of city near meerut tehsil. Thousands of people passes through unnoticing the history of the place , The ashok ki laat which was made in the remembrance of the soldiers and citizens who raised their voice against britishers observe barely a dozen or two visitors a day , a crore of rupees of was spent building a museum near the pillar but like any other 4 room museum it failed to attract visitors . Therefore the aim was to make the monument so symbolic that it leaves an impression on every eye that looks on it and invites to end the curosity .

existing site has a stone pillar of ashoka , this pillar is the identity of the site hence removing it will be a disaster to the identity of the site neither any big massive structure should dominate the stone pillar.The solution of the challenge could be by building it around the existing stone pillar such that it create a enclosure and it remain as a major public gathering space around it.The public space on the surface is a public plaza which is the large open to sky podium on which the pillar was present , also it serves as a connecting zone between the museum and the exhibition halls. The museum floor is situated aboove the ground such that it increases the security and also increases space available for public at lower level , food courts and retail zone is situated at lower level to increase the footfall on the site . Since this project will require quite a big amount to be invested various alternate source of income to assure the ROI is considered during the designing of the programme of the building in its initial stage . The Auditorium of capacity of 600 people which not only runs the culture oriented programmes on a regular basis but also can be rented for some private function too . Since Meerut is also a major industrial city and also a hub of various small scale industry , a seperate retail zone is connected this will not only generate some additional income but also will boost the economy of the region also.

SECTION The Structure is cladded with copper sheets as copper gives a flame like visual when light strikes over it and the edgy shapes spoke the language of anger of oppression on indians which will remain frozen with time shall passed . The torch like shape around the ashoka pillar is the symbolicity of the freedom and the spirit of the free indian people who shall not compromise its integrity and shall fight for it . The memorial is a tribute to all the unsung heroes of the war of independence and will shine to glorify their heroic tales and will inspire the future generations.
roject brief is to propose A 5 star hotel in Aerocity delhi . The objective was to study the current trend of the hospitality sector and make a design programme that would understand the need of the industry . After doing a thorough case studies of various hotels like Crowne Plaza , Trident Gurgaon and Radisson Blu Noida design programme need was to maximise the customer experience and since a huge investment is at stake the design programme of these buildings are very crucial in determining the success of a project .
orous yet controlled movement is needed for the hotel in a way such that the visitor can go in any part of the function yet it does not create a problem to the activity of the zones . A visitor comes to attend a marriage from banglore or a business man coming from new york , all the need from shopping to liesure are kept in mind . Visitors are divided majorly in 3 types , Retail or short time visitor , Banquet visitors and a Accomodation visitor .Seperated movement helps in smooth movement of traffic during peak hours , also since banquets have a huge traffic at a short span of time maximum seggregation is created by lowering the zone of banquets so the chaos will be restricted .
