academy of art and design, delhi Semester 5 The brief was to design a creative arts institute on a site of 5 acres at Vasant Kunj in Delhi, having the notion of Public – defined for the purposes of this studio as positive, multifunctional spaces between buildings.


Massing was done keeping in mind north light, existing trees and mutual shading. The building was oriented according to the views of the central water body, which was bridged with the library. Freeing up the ground plane and zoning the public functions like the galleries, multifunctional plaza and digital lab on it would make interaction between students fluid

The buildings were designed using pure forms, and clean geometries .The water body was used as large scale open space with the edge designed to be interactive and accessible. The sculpture lawn is situated adjacent to it to curate an experiential aura.

05

The bridge over the water body has steps leading to the library above. Reading in the library is made enjoyable with the comfort of diffused light from the north along with the views to the water body.

Sectionially, the built mass opens up to the south and invites in the sun, and the receding balconies overlooking the plaza allow for creation of an interactive space below. The change in volume with the creation of double heighted space assist in providing a varied experience within the building 07

group housing Semester 7 Team mate : Rudra Sahai


The brief was to design a multi functional group housing development after a rigorous study of the context of Gurgaon. The studio focussed on a horizontal mix of community based functions like school, dispensary, clubhouse, parks and gardens and a convenient shopping complex

10


Master Planning for the 25 acre site at sector 61 was done such that natural drainage was retained with the central water body adding landscape aesthetic. The commercial complex and clubhouse was centrally placed for ease of access. A heirarchy of heights was maintained, which was increasing radially outward. The villas surround the central green and the towers are on the outside edge.

11


The three buildings on the master plan were assigned three different heights. the concept evolved around joining the towers at the roof to make it sloping inwards. The height of the building lends to the scale of the arched spaces. The iconic shape of the building was also well suited for the site’s location, which was very close to the road junction.

FLOOR 2 TOWER A 4- 2BHKs TOWER B 2 - 2BHKs TOWER C 3 - 2BHKs

12


The building provides for 168 dwelling units. Most of them are 2BHKs catering to the Gurgaon demographic. All apartments have balconies running along the egde. The end units of floors 10 through 24 have terraces attatched to them, which face south to enjoy the view of the landscape. Large openings at regular intervals helped light and ventilate the corridor

gurgaon culture centre Semester 3


The brief was to design a culture centre with a museum on Gurgaon. The studio focussed on concepts of entry, path, place and light as fundamental to designing spaces while also using contours to the advantage of our architecture. The idea of narratives of different people who use the building was also introduced. 18


Planning of functions was guided by factors like acecess, slope, views, noise levels and natural features. The idea of transition from entry to path to place was explored. Design principles like composition, hierarchy and balance were consciously applied at all levels of the design process.

ENTRY

PATH

Inviting the users into the space while retaining an element of mystery about what is inside

Leading the user to the place with the dappling comfort of the trees above and peeks into the spaces around


The site is heavily contoured. The buildings and the path between them was designed to provide an experience with levels and views of the Aravali hills and the highway thereafter. Since the trees and the rock outcrops were retained, the buildings sit on the landscape sometimes with a sense of being nestled in nature and other times as objects in space.

PLACE

LIGHT

Place-making by accentuating views and changing the scale of spaces

Designing with light by moulding the form to create an expansive experience 22


1 Entry to the Gallery and Museum 2 Library with diffused north lighting 3 Cafe seating between curved louvred windows

23


The concept of light was explored with the help of iterative models. The use of planes to diffuse light and naturally illuminate the architecture as the narrative changes constantly with the change in direction of the sun

cyborg craft C.E.P.T. Summer 2016

It was a design-build workshop involving feedback between designers, skilled human masons, a CNC machine, and a computer algorithm. We designed a wall on Rhinoceros 3D surface modelling software, which was the input for a computer algorithm to facilitate information exchange between skilled masons and a CNC machine. The aim was to investigate tacit craft skills and their relationship to algorithmic design through human-computer information exchange and digital fabrication. Initially we made models of the parametric walls on a small scale and tested it till failure. Further we developed one design and made a test wall with the help of the mason. The central concept used here was triangulation. Using Rhinoceros and grasshopper, we made a script that would determine the co-ordinates of all the corners of the bricks in space. Later these distances were measured and all the bricks were placed accordingly. This method was applied on the small scale as well as the wall. All the bricks were cut in different directions and textures using the CNC in order to produce a smooth surface. The masons skills helped us accurately put it together.
