THE ROOT ZONE SYSTEM
• Root zone System uses ecological principles.
•The breakdown of contaminants and the treatment of
wastewater is achieved by the controlled seepage of the
waterborne pollutants through a root-zone of plants.
•Hence we propose a root zone system treatment along
the drain where the grey gets treated biologically, and
finally the treatment plant

RESTORING THE PAST…


An avenue is designed linking the main road to the
monument and filling the site by mounds and carving
shapes on either sides of the road. In this way we are
able to achieve a focus to the monument.

THE ‘GREEN FINGERS’….

WIND FUNNELS AS A GARDEN OF SENSES…


Recreational spaces have been designed under the areas of
wind turbines. Not only they act as catchment areas for the
wind but also as an airy and comfortable place. The quality of
this space is increased by providing drapes, wind chimes and a
water body that cools the breeze blowing.

THE GREEN
SPIRAL
The cluster
consists of a
continuous
spiral which
extends from
one terrace to
the other.

THE GLAZING SPIRAL


Photovoltaic Structural
Glass (Low iron
pattern Glass).
Since we have alot of
surface area on out
clusters, we intend to
generate energy
via photovoltaic
glazed panels in
south side.

THE CLUSTER
The cluster consist of rotating floor plates which
creates a variety of heights in the built and the open,
single, double and triple height terraces.

Structure
GENERATION OF WIND FARMING …
The main motive has been to harness wind as a
major source of energy as we have high rise
structures. Both the site plan and the build form
responds to harness wind energy in the best
possible way.
We have funnels between towers which have a
grid of MICRO WIND TURBINES which work
mechanically.

BY PROVIDING THESE
WINDTURBINES THE
AMOUNT OF ENERGY WE
GENERATES WILL BE
AROUND 25700 KWH/ YR.,
WHICH CAN BE USED FOR
STREET LIGHTING, WATER
PUMPING ETC.

The bridges between the clusters are spaces for


activity as well as for connection. They are terraced
and have lounge spaces for community interaction

ORIENTATION
A north south orientation is maintained to get proper
light and sun in the classrooms.

MASSING
A play of volumes creates an opportunity for multiple
terraces which can be used for a variety of functions
by different classes

The section follows the contour of the site and all the water is collected underneath the oat which is the
natural catchment point.

CONCEPT
The concept of the building follows the surrounding buildings which are
based on the axial planning of lutyens delhi. The form is simplistic and
easily legible keeping in mind Gandhi’s teachings and philosophy.

GANDHI SMRITI CULTURAL CENTRE, 3RD Year, AUG-DEC, 2007
The choice of material is vernacular, mud bricks and terracotta
tiles are used.
A central open space is created which has an Oat and a food
court opening into it and is thus made active.

MENTAL MAPPING ALWAR


The task was to make a mental map of the city after taking a tour of the place , instead of making a plan I thought the city can be
better explained as a section with its hierarchy of levels

formal ,informal and intimate spaces.These are studied in terms of

Design Problems, 2nd Year, AUG 2006-may, 2007
HOUSE DESIGN- the focus of the design
was to understand the clients individuality and
cater to his needs. The client wanted a simple form
which does not stand out. The design has thus
been created on this basis, while also keeping in
mind the context and the climate of the site.

HOTEL DESIGN- the hotel


is situated in Alwar and the main
focus of the design has been to
create a space which fits in the urban
context and yet remains ‘modern’. A
central courtyard is at the heart of
the design in keeping with the local
context as well as climate, yet the
feel and mood remain entirely
modernistic.

The basic focus of design for the coffee home is a

In first year, we learnt about form and space and the integration of the
two to understand what architecture is all about. I learnt about Positive

SKETCHING:
Monuments and
objects:
in this we were
supposed to sketch a
composition by seeing
the monument / object
.thus we learnt about
proportioning ,
perspective and
composition. We also
learnt rendering
according to the actual
shading pattern as well
as texture to create real
image with depth.

in this I learnt about
observation. Special
attention was paid to
smaller details in

SUMMER TRAINING, MAY-JUN,2008 (With Ar ANIL LAUL at Anangpur district centre, Faridabad.)

While training with architect


Anil Laul, I learnt how to make
hollow core interlocking
blocks, and the use of
alternate materials for building
construction

I learnt various appropriate building technologies,


like ‘A’ frames, funicular shells, cube on vertex and
also gained an understanding of sustainable design,
low cost construction and slum rehabilitation. Case
studies of Jaunapur, Deepalaya etc were studied in-
depth to understand cluster planning and a new way
of looking at the vaastu shastra.
