His Major And Known Works In Delhi, INDIA
INDIAN HABITAT CENTRE
It is a multipurpose building in New Delhi, India.
Mixing work, commercial and social spaces, it is
India’s most comprehensive convention centre
• It is bounded by the Max
Muller Marg on west, the
Vardhman Marg on south
and the Lodhi road on the
north. The Fourth side is
flanked by Bal Bharthi
School.
• The complex is spread over an area of 9 acres.
• There are 5 main building blocks which are
interconnected by means of aerial walkways.
• The habitat centre is organized as a series of four to
seven storey blocks around linked shaded courtyards.
• The height of the building is around 30m high.
• It is monumental in scale.
• The external facade is of exposed red brick, exposed
concrete and glass.
• Use of horizontal and vertical ribbon windows having
slots in them for plantation purposes.
SHADING DEVICE
• The reflectors are installed
above the building to provide
shade and prevent sun from
entering into the building. The
reflectors are aligned at an
angle which reflect back 70% of
the sunlight and change their
angle during winter to allow
sunlight to fall on the windows.
THE BRIDGE
• The buildings are grouped
around semi-covered
courts and linked at the
5th and 6th floor level and
above by bridges to form
huge gateways for
entrance into various
zones/ courts. These multi
level bridges provide office
spaces as well as links
between various building
zones.
• The courtyards are planted with a pleasing array of greenery –
large pots and beds of evergreen shrubs and tall trees, providing
a more human feel and scale amongst the concrete
monumentality.
• The reflectors used as shading devices creates interesting
shadow patterns.
• Water ponds are provided to cut the rigidity of harsh materials.
• Palm trees have been planted to create a refreshing environment
inside.
• Sculptures have been placed at strategic points creating an
element of interest.
