  4. 4. “Public Domain is the celebration of public space, and the encouragement of public activities that drives the form of the practice’s buildings.” “Sustainable urban development is dependent on three factors: The quality of architecture, social well-being and environmental responsibility. “ Legibility Flexibility “Work, leisure and domestic activities are becoming interchangeable, leading to the creation of open-ended, flexible structures such as the Pompidou Centre, the Wimbledon House, 88 Wood Street, and Barajas Airport in Madrid. “Our master plans are defined by an holistic approach allowing for enough flexibility to accommodate changes over the lifespan of a city, in order to meet market demands. The practicalities and concept of a public place should be inherently flexible in order to respond to changes such as transport and density.“ Design 6 : AN ARCHITECT Theory Of Design Maulik Yagnik A/2042/2008 3rd yr Sec-A School Of Planning And Architecture DESIGN IDEOLOGY/ PHILOSOPHY
  5. 5. SECTION OF DOME MILLENIUM DOME : Study Externally, it appears as a large white marquee with twelve 100 m-high yellow support towers one for each month of the year, or each hour of the clock face. In plan view it is circular, 365 m in diameter — one meter for each day of the year — with scalloped edges Design 6 : AN ARCHITECT Theory Of Design Maulik Yagnik A/2042/2008 3rd yr Sec-A School Of Planning And Architecture

He initiates different interesting concepts which reflect his individual identity in the world of architecture. Each and every building designed by him has some amazing thing which a normal human eye wandering around can experience. For e.g. The millennium dome structure has such a concept about the time – no. of days, no. of hours etc. 365 m in diameter — one meter for each day of the year Though Richard is a worldwide known Architect, But still almost 80% of his work has been done in UK, being a British national the person is so much in love with his nation that he wants it to be unique. WONDERFUL CONCEPTS As per my perception, Richard does not think much about the context of the building which might be wrong as per architects but, Richard has those magnificent concepts which makes forget the context and surroundings. While looking at all the structures discussed above I did not realize anything except for the building which I was looking at.

  10. 10. Design 6 : AN ARCHITECT Theory Of Design Maulik Yagnik A/2042/2008 3rd yr Sec-A School Of Planning And Architecture DESIGN IDEOLOGY/ PHILOSOPHY “To gain something beautiful, one may have to give up something beautiful.” “It is better to BE what you are, than to SEEM what you are not!” “Don’t be euphoric when people praise you, or depressed when people criticize you!” Truth is the ultimate search of all artists. Even then I feel, “It is better to Search the Good, than to Know theTruth!” “There is only one form of good luck, which is having good teachers!” THOUGHT ABOUT ARCHITECTURE “Architecture is a curious craft !” “One structure may follow all of the laws of design, yet be worthless, while still another may break all the principles and be profound!” “A building may be bad without doing anything wrong, yet another work may have to sin against architecture to reach perfection.”

Design 6 : AN ARCHITECT Theory Of Design Maulik Yagnik A/2042/2008 3rd yr Sec-A School Of Planning And Architecture A CRITIQUE DEEP THINKING CCB’s Architecture has deep thoughts, which make him design the structure which blends with modernity and the context simultaneously. Aspiration to create something vernacularly unique has compelled Benninger to get into modernity with play of shapes and spaces. Benninger in all his designs has pin- pointed into material use, nature care and blending with the context.This is what makes his type of architecture different from others. Simple, Functional, Modern,Vernacular.. would be some aspects to describe the buildings of Benninger. Another mention in his designs would be of Symmetry – His designs do have symmetrical forms and facades.
