EDUCAT ION

Architecture for me has always been about the story it tells , how it’s a multidiciplinary art that speaks to the mind and soul . Through this internship , I hope to broaden my mind and find another way to see and experience architecture.

This effect is enhanced by the wave, thus allowing users to enjoy nature’s music all throughout the day.

L O C AT I O N

The Rain Maker is a cardboard tube with compressed foil paper and rice grains wrapped in cling wrap. As the tube moves back and forth, the rice grains hit against the foil creating the sound of rain.

WAVE

The wave mechanism, created by Ruben Mangolin, has been incorporated in this work. It essentially imitates the movement of waves. It is located in a corridor

which

connects

the

design

studios. The set of waves are placed in such a way that the view to either side is not hindered and in using a quiet calm space where in the music of nature

can

be

appreciated.


LOW-RISE APART MENTS

The idea is to have apartments that feel like residences, each having its own double storie private balcony and two floors

LOW-RISE APART MENTS The project design is a low rise building with three categories of apartments, 3BHK, 2BHK, 1BHK.

INDIVIDUAL B L O C K S

The site is located in an urban enviroment with a generic population of lower to middle class.
