Annual NASA Design Competition 2017

Organised by National Association of Students of Architecture


2017


Objectives:
 To identify an abandoned public space in your city that has the potential to be a vibrant urban social space.
 To evolve a design for "Alternative Spaces" that transforms the abandoned public space.
 To engage in a real-life hands-on construction program at the chosen site and transform the place. The challenge will be to keep the budgets affordable and ensure ecological materials are used.
 Giving importance to the spirit of the alternative space.
 To video document the process of transforming the urban space and record the way in which it is used after transformation.

Our solution:
 To identify and utilize unused spaces around water bodies such as lakes, ponds, canals and rivulets in Ranchi city.
 To create low cost modular structures that can help these areas to serve the locals.
 Making modular installations will ensure minimum interference with the existing routine of the locals.
 The installations can be constructed off site and placed on the site after completion, ensuring a comfortable transition.

Working with guidance from senior architects at Morphogenesis, we achieved a place in the All India Top 67 list. Almost every architecture college in India sends at least one entry for ANDC every year, making this an achievement that we are proud of.
Led a team of 16 students and built a bamboo prototype of our design.

Bitotsav

2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017

 

Bitotsav is the Annual Cultural Festival organised at Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra.
As part of the Students' Society of Architecture, worked on pavilions and info-cell designs for the fest every year.



Bitotsav 2017


Using Steel rods for the first time in combinaion with bamboo, we created a pavilion that best suited the needs, learning from past mistakes.
The design this time ensured maximum shading throughout the day from the scorching February sun. It also allowed for maximum frontage of the info-cell, allowing a greater number of helpdesks and avoiding long queues and crowding at a single desk. It allowed wind pass through creating a comfortable environment for the volunteers as well as the fest visitors.
Bamboo columns, beams and arches were used to hold up a lightweight steel frame. The steel frame design was made parametrically, optimising cost, area, frontage and weight.

View the Grasshopper script for the steel frame design here. An early render of the design in Rhinoceros (Left). Other than traditional bamboo joinery, we used bolts to join the steel members to each other as well as to the bamboo framework. Each hollow steel member was cut manually, taking measurements from the Grasshopper script.
The ends of each member were manually flattened and holes were drilled to help in joinery. All work done on the pavilion was done by students in the SSA body.





Bitotsav 2016


In addition to the SSA Info-Cell Pavilion, worked as User Interface Designer for the Bitotsav 2016 Android Application and Website.
Working closely with developers Gaurav Chaddha (Android Developer), Nikhil Verma(Backend Developer) and Ashish Gaurav(Frontend Developer), we created the website and app to engage users, enable registrations, promote merchandise & sponsors, push live notifications to participants and provide important information.
Given the theme of 'Gaming', the app and website were designed to reinforce the idea of a gamers' fest.

Download the Android app for testing here.


The 2016 Info-cell Pavilion (Right - Top view of the 2016 pavilion)
A structure made entirely of bamboo members and cloth. The roof structure was assembled using individual hyperbolic-paraboloids made of bamboo and cloth.

   


Bitotsav 2015


The 2015 Info-cell pavilion was constructed entirely using bamboo and traditional bamboo joineries.
The design was generated in Grasshopper using Sinusoidal functions. The design was then prototyped and finalized. Each member was cut to length manually and organised in an orderly way for ease during assembly. The members were hung onto reinforcement rods passing through the structural frame.

Early renders of the design in Rhinoceros







Prototyping using skewers - testing different bamboo joineries









Fabrication - cutting and sorting of individual members - final result

   


Bitotsav 2014


The 2014 pavilions were designed and constructed by the students for showcase during the fest, using various bamboo construction techniques and inspiration from the properties of the material.
3 standalone structure were made, of which two used the flexibilty of sliced bamboo members to enclose a cylindrical space. The third structure demonstrated the rigidity of bamboo.
Worked with Nishchay Pidiha and Arun Kuthanazhi as part of the SSA Body.

INSDAG Award for Innovative Use of Steel in Architecture

All India Top 9       2017

 

Organised by the Institute for Steel Development and Growth (INSDAG), the primary objective of the brief was "to explore potential of Steel as a versatile material for architectural and engineering expression through innovative thoughts and intent in smart cities".
Working in a team of 4, we were expected to evolve a new prototype of design for an Elevated Cycle Track running through the heart of New Delhi. The proposal accommodated the following facilities:
      Cycle parking spaces, with locking facilities
      Cycle renting spaces, with payment facilities
      Food courts
      Convenient shopping facilities / retailment centres (both formal and informal)
      Public recreation facilities
      Public Toilets and Rest rooms
      Transit accommodation facility (in case of Metro Station/Bus Stands)
      Any other facilities (as felt necessary)
The design was to represent the rapid development path that our country and the city is professing while also projecting the image of contemporary India.

 



Our design started with the idea of a 'timeline' of the evolution of New Delhi. Starting with the Sultanate period and following upto the modern styles of architecture found in the city, our design used steel as not only the structural members, but also on the facade. Inspired by the work of Edoardo Tresoldi, we used steel mesh to create forms representing each era in the timeline.

Urban Design

2017

 

Urban Design Studio project floated by Dr. Satyaki Sarkar and Dr. D. J. Biswas for fourth year students. Teams of 8 were assigned regions along the national highway passing through Ranchi city.
The stretch given to us was the region in the vicinity of Booty More, one of the busiest roundabouts in the city. Along with a crowded marketplace and a bus stop, an area has been designated for a durga puja pandal (Religious Pavilion).

Paving the entire area with colored stone and organising the marketplace helped clear up the area and allow for more well developed bus terminals. Using difference in levels we segregated the pedestrian and vehicular movement. Employing the effect of paved/tiled roadways on drivers, we ensured that vehicles automatically slowed down in this area.

Sustainable Fanbox Design for Rio Olympics

Competition by archasm.in      2016

The brief required a temporary structure of a new typology known as a Fanbox. The functional requirements were to cater to the tourists and locals visiting Copacabana beach during the Rio Olympics. The structure had to provide an interesting platform for the users to get frequent updates about the ongoing Olympic games. The solution had to be a sustainable one, with minimal impact on the environment.

The proposal was to refurbish unused shipping containers from the nearby port and use other locally sourced materials to create an enclosure of space. The exterior space would serve as a beacon with live screens, banners and paintings to attract people and show information about the games. On entering the structure, visitors will be greeted with a long semi open gallery showcasing the history of the Olympics and various other information. Inside the enclosed open space, interactive installations are placed to engage visitors.

Modified bicycles, treadmills and other similar equipment was placed in groups, emulating olympic events for the users by utilizing the energy generated by them. For example, six bicycles placed in a row would emulate a bicycling race. The energy generated by the users during cycling would be utilized to run a system that calculates which bicycle is winning. At the end of the race, the system would also show the amount of energy the users generated while enjoying the race. This would become a platform for not only physical fitness but also awareness about sustainability and renewable energy.
Worked in a team with Siddhant Jena and Meenal Bankoti.

Griha Design Competition

Competition Organized by NASA     2016 and 2017

The brief expected an Office Building design that should make the best use of the site to improve the thermal performance in the climatic conditions of Gurgaon. It should give special attention to massing, solar orientation, wind movement and passive cooling systems.
Architects play a very important role in influencing human behaviour through spatial experience. With time it has been realized that user behaviour is a key determining factor of environmentally sustainable practices. The proposed design scheme was not only required to be designed with the least environmental footprint, but also to create spaces that inspire and inculcate environmentally responsible attitude in all the occupants and visitors.
Project Specifications:

  • Location : 32nd Milestone, NH8, Gurgaon.
  • Site Area : 2.40 Acres.
  • FAR : 1.75
  • Maximum ground coverage : 37.71%
  • Building Occupancy : 2557 persons
  • Height : 108.77 m

Museum Design in Ranchi

Ranchi Science and Technology Centre       2016 - Studio Project

The proposed project was to design a Technology Museum with a modern concept, while having cultural roots. The brief required a design that would attract visitors of all age groups frequently. Located in one of the fastest growing areas of Ranchi, it had to be architecturally attractive. Space for temporary exhibits was also required.


The solution was a continuous journey through the site with new attractions and installations. A main gallery structure would have all the permanent and temporary exhibits of the museum, while the rest of the site would be used for other interactive installations and festivities. Attractions like Levitationarium (Sky-dive simulator), Semi-open Planetarium and Robotics Labs were given with details.


Some aspects of sustainability were also applied to make the museum more energy efficient. The main gallery was designed to maximize use of daylight as the structure would be mostly used during the day. Solar energy and other renewable resources would be exploited.

Institutional Project in Bhutan

Project at Morphogenesis      2016

The site provided by the client had a very steep and irregular slope in one direction. The site was located in a very isolated and beautiful environment. A major challenge was incorporating a full size football field in the design along with an institutional block as well as hostel blocks and an auditorium.
The solution given was a design that snaked along the contour, minimizing cut-and-fill as well as construction costs. It resembled a path or a journey from the bottom to the top.
The hostel blocks were kept recessed at the back end of the site and were shielded with tall rubble masonry walls. Due to stringent culture-oriented bylaws in Bhutan, not much deviation could be made from the traditional building design or construction methods. Locally sourced materials and vernacular construction techniques that ensure the project is sustainable.
Worked in a team led by Ar. Alok at Morphogenesis. Various major inputs at conceptual design stage, Client presentations, meetings and Physical models.

Residential-cum-Commercial Project in Kolkata

2016 - Studio project

The project brief required an exploitative design with maximum FAR as permitted by the codes. Located in a busy and robust locality, the design had to incorporate a plethora of features. Two towers were designed, connected by sky-bridges on multiple levels. Two levels of basement parking, two levels of commercial space and one level for residential amenities were provided for 96 flats. Each residential level had 6 flats; 4 three bhk flats and 2 two bhk flats. An alternating design ensured that only 83% or less of each flat’s accessible floor area had to be considered while calculating FAR as per the bylaws.


The permissible FAR was 2.75, and the solution achieved an FAR of 2.746. Each flat received adequate daylight and window openings. Structural analysis was performed using software tools such as STAAD Pro

Rural Health Centre in Harmu, Ranchi

2015 - Studio project

The dispensary and health centre was to be designed in a small village of 5000 near the outskirts of Ranchi city.
The main aim was to make a building with traditional and local techniques and make it as cost effective as possible and try to minimize the height of the building. For that, materials like compressed earth blocks, stone and mud mortar have been widely used which will also keep the building cool.
Since the region has a hot and humid climate generally, building profile was itself pushed into the ground, i.e. the ground floor was a semi underground floor, which will automatically get cooled and has access to front by stairs and ramps. Also, the ground floor was to serve as the public zone i.e. it would have staff room, head office room, medicine shop outlet, vaccination room and a huge waiting hall.
All the treatment spaces like the OPDs, maternity care, operation room, nurse room, immunization room, testing labs and wards were placed in the first floor.

A direct ramp access had been given to first floor on the operation room side so that emergency cases can be directly taken to the operation room, without much hassle and hence, the functionality is kept intact.
The wards would have access to roof for early morning treatment methods and the wards on the south side would have jali-works representing the different chakras in a human body. It is said that presence of these symbols has a very positive effect on the body and helps for fast recovery. Worked along with Siddhant Jena over a period of one month.
