TABLE OF CONTENTS PAGE 2


HAVING BEEN FACINATED BY PORTS SINCE MY EARLY YEARS, THE SELECTION OF MY ARCHITECTURAL THESIS PROJECT WAS STRONGLY INCLINED TO A COASTAL DEVELOPMENT. THE SITE SELECTED WAS LOCATED AT VALLARPADAM , COCHIN AND WAS ENVISIONED TO BE DEVELOPED AS A TRANSHIPMENT HUB.THE DEVELOPMENT WAS TO INCLUDE A CARGO HANDLING UNIT AS WELL AS A CRUISE TERMINAL FOR FOREIGN VESSELS. THERE EXISTS AN INTERNATIONAL SEA TRADE ROUTE BETWEEN EUROPE AND SHANGHAI COCHIN IS ONLY 30-40 NAUTICAL MILES OFF THIS ROUTE.COCHIN PROVIDES THE POSSIBILITY OF A SAFE STOP TO AVOID THE WAIT AT SEA.THE SITE AT VALLARPADAM IS 298 ACRES IN AREA.THE LAND HAS BEEN RECLAIMED (IE ARTIFICIALLY CREATED) JOINING THE ORIGINAL SMALLER ISLANDS OF VALLARPADAM,VIMANTHIVE AND RAMANTHURU. THE APPROACH TO THE DESIGN IS STRONGLY ROOTED IN THE CONTEXT, CONNECTIVITY PATTERNS AND CLIMATIC AND CULTURAL CHARATERS OF THE SPACE

THE SITE

THE INNER HARBOUR THE WELLINGTON ISLAND IS SHARED BY THE NAVY AND THE COMMERCIAL PORT.THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PORT HAS REACHED ITS STAGNATION POINT AND FURTHER DEVELOPMENT MUST BE THOUGHT OF ELSEWHERE.VALLARPADAM IS AN ISLAND LOCATED ONLY ABOUT 2KM TO THE THE HARBOUR NORTH OF WELLINGTON ISLAND.THE ISLAND OF VYPEEN IS CURRENTLY BEING DEVELOPED AS AN LNG AND OIL TERMINAL.THE CHANNEL HAS A DRAFT OF 14M AND A DEPTH OF 15.95M. SUN, WIND,

VEGETATION AND GRADING ANALYSIS

THE SITE IS SURROUNDED BY WATER ON THE SOUTH,WEST AND EAST SIDES. ON THE NORTH IS THE GIDA ROAD. THE VEMBANAD BRIDGE ON THE WEST PROVIDES RAIL CONNECTIVITY.

THE POSITION OF THE ORIGINAL ISLANDS MARKS THE HIGHEST PORTIONS OF THE SITE AND ALSO THE DENSEST VEGETATION.

NASA ANDC TROPHY - 2009 ONE OF THE MOST RAW, PRIMITIVE AND CONSTANT RELATIONSHIPS IN THE WORLD IS THAT BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE AND MAN-MUTUALLY DEPENDANT, NEITHER SHALL LIVE WITHOUT THE SURVIVAL OF THE OTHER. IN THE REALM OF HUMANITY, ARCHITECTS ARE NO DOUBT ETERNALLY POWERFUL PEOPLE. THE ARCHITECT IS SET APART FROM THE MILLIONS OF BYSTANDERS AND MUST ACKNOWLEDGE THAT HE HAS THE POWER TO CONTROL THE SITUATION. IT IS THUS HIS VESTED RESPONSIBILITY TO GIVE DIRECTION TO PERSISTING CIRCUMSTANCES. INCREASING URBANISATION, OVERCROWDED CITIES, MIGRATION HAVE CAUSED DRASTIC CHANGES. LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE ARE LOST IN THE CROWD, SEEMINGLY AIMLESS WANDERING WITH NO UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR PLACE OR POSITION. TECHNOLOGY HAS WIDENED THE GAP BETWEEN PEOPLE TO AN EXTENT THAT IT HAS COME TO BE MEASURED AS A LUXURY OF THE WEALTHY. INDIVIDUAL MODES OF TRANSPORT FURTHER REDUCE SOCIAL INTERACTIONS. CHAOS SCREAMS IN THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE AND SOCIAL COHESION SLOWLY FADES FROM EXISTENCE. IS THE PRICE WE’VE PAID FOR PRIVACY TRULY JUSTIFIED? SELF ABSORBED INDIFFERENCE HAS COME UPON US LIKE A FOG AND WE ARE NOW CURIOUS IF BY WILL. ARE WE STILL OUR OWN MASTERS? OR HAVE WE LOST SO MUCH DIRECTION THAT WE ARE SLAVES IN OUR OWN WORLD?? THE ARCHITECT NEEDS TO STEP UP TO THE SITUATION, TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS DEALING WITH AND RESPOND. COMBINING THE WISDOM OF HISTORY AND CULTURE WITH THE INSIGHT OF MODERN SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS INTO THE ARTICULATION OF CONNECTIVIST PRINCIPLES THE ARCHITECT MAY INDEED BUILD A NEW SOCIETY. ARCHITECTURE BEARS A STRONG PUBLIC FACE, A SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, A PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE. BY VITRUVIAN PRINCIPLE – THE REQUIREMENTS OF UTILITY , STABILITY AND DELIGHT - THE SPACE NEEDS TO EFFICIENTLY SERVE THE PURPOSE IT IS REQUIRED TO, ENDURE TIME AND PHYSICAL CONDITIONS ,APPEAL TO AND PLEASE ITS USER, ADHERE TO SOCIAL CONDITIONS , RESPOND TO PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTEXT, STRATEGICALLY USE MATERIALS, BE COST EFFICIENT AND MAKE A STATEMENT OF CHARACTER. TODAY THE CONCEPTS OF FUNDAMENTAL GEOMETRY ARE HIGH IN THE FIELD. IN A SIMPLE MINDED BELIEF THAT FUNDAMENTALISM IS THE LONG SOUGHT OUT ANSWER TO A PURITY AND AN IMPROVEMENT IN THE MORALE OF THE PEOPLE ARCHITECTS HAVE INNOCENTLY ROBBED HUMAN BEINGS OF THEMSELVES. BUILDINGS THAT DO NOT COMMUNICATE TO PEOPLE, THAT STAND APART DO NOT TOUCH THE DEPTHS OF THE HEART. TODAY THE PLAY OF SCALES HAS REACHED UNCOMFORTABLE EXTREMES. A STRUCTURE ONLY EARNS THE TERM ‘ARCHITECTURE’ BY THE LIFE IT INCORPORATES INTO IT AND BY THE BOND IT ACHIEVES WITH THE PEOPLE THAT IT MEETS. MINIMALISM AND EXTRAVAGANCE ARE UNNATURAL TO HUMAN TENDENCIES. WITH THE EXPONENTIALLY INCREASING POPULATION IT WOULD BE FOOLISH TO IGNORE THE ADVANTAGES OF MINIMALISM AND HIGH RISE STRUCTURES. HOWEVER, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO RECOGNISE THE THIN LINE THAT SEPARATES INNOVATION FOR THE COMMON GOOD AND INNOVATION FOR PERSONAL GLORY. TO MAKE A CHANGE, THERE IS NO BETTER TIME THAN NOW, NOR A PLACE THAN HERE. HIF WE ARE GOING TO ADAPT SUCCESSFULLY TO THE COMPLEX SET OF CONDITIONS OF CONTEMPORARY HUMANITY - LIKE THE BIOSPHERE, THE PUBLIC REALM, THE PATTERNS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY AND THE QUALITY OF HUMAN LIFE - WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIND A MORE ROBUST, MORE ADAPTIVE KIND OF ARCHITECTURE. THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE BUILT UPON IMAGES, COPIED OR INVENTED IN ONE’S OWN MIND. IT MUST BE BUILT UPON A SYSTEM OF EVOLVED RESPONSES, ADAPTED TO VARYING CONTEXTS. THIS IS, AFTER ALL, HOW NATURE PROBLEM-SOLVES AND ACHIEVES SUSTAINABLE EQUILIBRIUM - THROUGH "COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE" OVER TIME. COMPLEX PERSONAS, CULTURES, RELIGIONS, REQUIREMENTS ARE IN NEED OF ARCHITECTURAL ATTENTION. SPACES NEED, NOT ONLY TO RELATE TO PEOPLE BUT INCORPORATE THE PEOPLE TO RELATE TO EACH OTHER. RAPID URBANISATION AND TECHNOLOGY ARE TO BE WISTFULLY EXPLOITED BEARING IN MIND THAT THE SOLE PURPOSE OF EXPLOITATION IS THE BETTERMENT OF LIFE. IRRELEVANT SPACES ALTHOUGH MAYBE ATTRACTIVE EVENTUALLY BECOME A BURDEN. HOWEVER PROGRESS FOR PROGRESS’ SAKE MUST BE RESPONSIBLY AVOIDED. CLIMATE AND TERRAIN NEED TO BE EXPLOITED AND NOT TREATED LIKE A FLAW TO BE DISCREETLY AVOIDED. THE ARCHITECT MUST REALISE THE FRESH PROMISE TOMORROW. THE AROMA OF POSSIBILITY IS THICK IN THE AIR.

WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN PAGE 18
