MODEL MAKING AND INSTALLATIONS pg. no. 15 These are my hand-made works that i have executed these past three years individually and group. Hope you will find it interesting.

residence The site is near the city of chandigarh, within the leafy streets of chandigarh suburbs is to build a one storey mansion on their 1600m2 . The site is surrounded by residential houses in three directions. the road lies on the front side.the objective to reside the entire family under on roof.

A generous verandah to the east and west allow yje open living area to aextend into the garden and pool, while a drive through music studio will optimizeb future family activities. A clerestory roof is arranged to gather light onto an internal high level shelf while keeping dammaging sun’s ray, all the white brightening the family’s interactions. A subtle solution for a suburban quandary.

student centre


We were asked to design a space where the students meet thier basic needs during the college hours. Which means they need thier meal during the break time, stationary shops in case, they need equipments for their college works, heath centre, and banks and ATMs . The site was inside a college campus which has the best circulation of the eduction sector as well as residential sector.

vernacular settlement


Location: Gunderdehi, Chhatisgarh Latitude: 2056’40.920”N Longitude: 8117’18.960’E Temperature: 25.75 - 44.57oC

One very interesting characteristics of this architecture is- how they scale thier spaces. Construction, here, happens without yardsticks and drawings. design is decided as people talk amongst themselves . The dimensions of the structure are decided with the help of thier own body. The very first problem in this village is the lack of employment. The occupation of the villagers is rice cultivation, which cut from Rs. 17/kilo to Rs.1/kilo all over the country, which is a disaster in itself. This is the reason why they commit suicide or either come to urban areas for employment.

So, I want to a create a space where people can meet thier needs in thier own village. A place where people can learn to build their kind of houses with modern techniques. And even any kind of art form that will be exported to the cities and they can earn from it. This will help the villagers from earning and even the ehtnicity of the village will remain intact.

multi-purpose building Location: Sector 17, Chandigarh Temperature: 25.75 - 44.57oC

The city centre and also the commercial bussiness district, sector 17 is the main commercial and business hub of the city designed by corbusier as the ‘heart’ of the city. Two sub- city centres in sector 34 and sector 43 were proposed for phase-II and phase-III. The sector 17 is centrally placed at the junction of 2 major roads the jan marg and the madhya marg. It covers an area of 240 acres. The brief was to re-design a multipurpose spaces in a city centre, where we were to provide shopping complex, office building and banks in a single built form according to the context. It is to designed in such a way that it forms a connection with the nearby spaces .



multi-purpose building


offices & food court The space is built at the centre of the city centre in order to create circulation between all the other spaces with it. The build form consists of shops and food centre at the ground floor and first floor, the office spaces are at the second floor while the banks to be kept safe in the third floor.

The space has le corbusier’s, the city planner of chandigarh elements in it. The massive coloumns in all the floor and the vertical louvres in the second and third floor.

cross border congregational space {Re} evolution

‘Evolution is far more thrilling than biblical account. Who wouldn’t be arising ape than a falling angel?’ “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.” -Charles Darwin

Alienated borderlands

When we think of human evolution, our minds wander back to thousands of years it took natural selection to produce the modern-day man. But are we still changing as species, even today? New research suggests that despite modern technology and industrialization, humans continue to evolve.

Co-exixted borderlands

While we have this idea of equality, in the real world, equality is rare. Inequality is a necessary part of life. The society degrades in making unequal things equal.

“The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

Interdependent borderlands


lack of identity

health issues

energy needs

lack of disaster management

lack of insfrastructure Integrated borderlands


cross border congregational space Health facility

Important office

Tourist information centre


Jhelum river

Shop module

The idea is to highlight the ‘border’ not merely as an area of conflict but also as locale of conflict resolution and more importantly, to analyse border related issues from the perspective of people, not to highlight borders simply as markers of exclusion and inclusion. For the urban population, international borders holds no significance. But these borders are of great vitality. They somehow creep into the life of every individual and leave a major impact. They could be physical or political constraints which restrict the overall growth of the individual.

louis isadore kahn trophy Every building must have its own soul -louis i kahn

The trophy, sponsored by Icomos India, before by UNESCO, deals with the documentation and analysis of heritage site. It involves the process documenting the site, analysing it, drafting and modelling the site in sofwares and finally reproducing the data by hand drafting, texting and sketching.. The brief demands the documentation and analysis of a heritage structure who have kept their values intact while adapting to the change, the Bow Barracks at Kolkata, one of the oldest surviving residential building since early 20th century.


louis isadore kahn trophy

In the heart of kolkata, amidst all the hustle and bustle, the narrow streets wind up to a peaceful little colony, with rows nad buildings uniformly painted in red and green.These blocks are the Bow Barracks, which might be amere place of sojourn to the rest of tyhe world but, to the Anglo- Indians, it is home

Location: Bow Barracks, Kolkata, India At the beginning of the twenty-first century, there remained in the world, avery few cities of singular and genuine character, where the observer can directly be transported into a world which is unique. Culture and Character have become global, even in such ancient, continous civiliazations as India, and cities are no exception. Nevertheless, there is nowhere in the world a place quite like Kolkata, where a distinctive identity is always present.

“kolkata is at its best when it is itself. not at what it could or couldn’t, should or shouldn’t, be”
