6 The project introduces a new paradigm that combines teaching and live performance in one facility. The proposed master plan aims to engage the artists through architecture by having free flowing structures. The solution is focused on developing a clear plan that would maximize building performance, and create a dynamic platform for performance and teaching. The overall design is characterized by shell structure. A large courtyard is occupying the center creating an open venue accessible throughout the day for actors, students, visitors, and patrons. The cafeteria is placed overlooking the amphitheater for people to enjoy the performances while having refreshments.

REDEVELOPMENT OF MARKET AT MOODBIDRI


REDEVELOPMENT OF MARKET AT MOODBIDRI

LOCATION

OUTREACH OF THE PROPOSAL

The major stakeholders are the vendors, residents of moodbidri town and neighboring towns. Redevelopment of the market, which is in a very dilapidated condition presently would help in improving the living standard and hygiene of the market and its users. With increasing tourism in moodbidri many hotels and lodges are overshadowing the character of the town with tall towers coming up. This redevelopment of the main market located at the heart of the town will be an attempt to bring back the identity of the town on a holistic level. 

DISTANCE FROM NEARBY CITIES TO MOODABIDRI Mangalore - 34.5 km Mulki - 27.5 km Karkala - 17.9 km Bantwal - 30.5 km To the north of the national highway, from the first junction of the city the buildings are multi-storied with commercial complex upto the market. Following the market the structural character of the buildings change to traditional mangalore tiled houses with small commercial spaces towards the highway. MAP SHOWING AGE OF THE BUILDINGS SITE MODEL

TRAFFIC ANALYSIS OF MOODBIDRI

SITE SECTIONS

SITE MODEL

ANALYSIS The growth of the town is linear, along the national highway. This is the only main access path for the town. The road being very narrow has led to congestion. All the commercial buildings are newly developed in the past 20 years. Some of the hotels and lodging have developed over the past 10 years. Many new high raised buildings have come up around the market area. Market area is the most densely populated area. The Road leading from the center of the town to Karkala ( nearby town) is narrow and winding through the commercial and residential areas. The width of the road is less than 7m.


CASE STUDY- SWOT ANALYSIS CUNCOLIM MARKET

Well planned market with sufficient lighting throughout. The shops are well zoned. Planning is done in different levels yet all the shops are visually connected from the central area. The vendors are seated on an elevated platform. The market is well functioning in terms of waste disposal, biogas plant, goods supply and storage unit.

The market is well zoned according to the category of goods. The traditional mangalore roof helps to maintain the temperature of the market. Each unit of the market is well designed which has helped in functioning of the market. The corridors are well lit and well ventilated with sufficient space.

Waste disposal system is disorganized and no defined place for the disposal and segregation of waste. Since the building is more than 100 years old the lighting system is not good. Public toilets are not provided within the market. The wholesale market is 7kms away from the main market.

Due to the usage of sheet roofing the market is very hot and uncomfortable to be in. Some of the stairwells are dark and unsafe. Insufficient parking provided.

This market is designed for very small town with very little population. There is insufficient area for storage of goods.

The market can be revived through proper maintenance and restoration as it is a beautiful architectural building apart from being a traditional market. Waste disposal system can be improved which will improve the hygiene of the market surroundings. The natural lighting system, like the skylights which are destroyedt can be restored for good lighting throughout the market.

Replacement of the roof material or provision of cooling devices will improve the air quality of the market and improve the functionality off the market.

THREAT

STRENGTH

The building is radial in form and symmetrical which has easy access ways. The market is well ventilated with large openings. MLCP is located beside the market which is well functioning. Built in platform and storage space below them are provided for each vendor. The shops are well zoned according to the goods sold.

WEAKNESS

PANJIM MARKET

OPPORTUNITIES

MANDAI MARKET

Development of new wholesale market has reduced the income of this market drastically.

Decline in number of visitors every day and decreasing every year which will affect the economy of the vendors who have to pay rent for their shops.

Development of connectivity and road infrastructure to this market will help in development of the market.

Goods supply to the market is from very far cities which will affect the market in emergency situations.

The bay side apartment is an attempt to answer a big challenge in growing cities today. The project is realized as three separate building blocks accommodating housing for LIG, MIG & HIG. With nearly 120 houses divided among twelve floors, the design required an innovative approach toward spatial organization to accommodate the living spaces, as well as the public, communal spaces. The basement is extended into a garden that has a running track, clubhouse, kindergarten, gym, and a shallow pool. On the other side, there are shops and medical facilities.

A green wall will help to vastly improve the quality of air in any environment. It acts as a natural air filter, purifying the polluted air whilst releasing clean oxygen. If installed in an office environment, the presence of green walls can lead to greater employee productivity and overall health, since cleaner air leads to better concentration, healthier employees and fewer sick days.

RESIDENCE IN BANGALORE The clients requirement was to design the interior spaces with a small budget. The house is 240 meter square with three bed rooms. I have used laminates with different textures on plywood for the cupboards and wall cladding. The cupboards follow a colour theme for each room. Designs have been carved out on the laminates. Teak wood is used for the prayer room. Glass bricks are used for the support of the glass slab in the living room.
