Portfolio 2013

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION: INTRODUCTION: ABC is an Architectural and structural consultancy firm dedicated to Bamboo Architecture. We also provide bamboo accessories for furniture and Interior Design projects. Cofounders: Ar. Prerna Jayant Palekar Currently appointed as a group committee member in Balbharti Pune, she has also written text books for standard 1st and 2nd on Bamboo and cane work under a subject called Work Experience. She has done a Bamboo Certificate course in Chaing Mai, Thailand to update with the latest construction technology used in bamboo constructions. Conducted by Bambooroo, it hosted architects Bambooroo across the world making it an interactive and knowledge sharing experience. She has also done a research thesis on Bamboo architecture in Nagaland where she helped voluntarily to design and executed a bamboo community center in Yimjenkimong village, Mokokchung Dist. Nagaland. Visiting member of Association of Architecture, AA London she also attended a visiting school in Bangalore on Computation. She is working on a project combining digital architecture and bamboo. Ar. Kankana Narayan Dev She has published research papers in International World Bamboo Congress in 2010, Bangkok, Thailand and 2012 Antwerp, Belgium. This has helped us carve a niche for our philosophy and version of sustainable bamboo Architecture on international level. ABC recently won a scholarship worth 1 lakh from Saint Gobian Gobian. It was granted after a nationwide completion on sustainable proposals made by inspiring entrepreneurs all over the country. Kankana N Dev made a presentation on a proposal called DEW (Darang Eco Workshop Mangoldai, Assam. Workshop orkshop), Darang This workshop is used to treat bamboo and make bamboo portable furniture. One of such initiative was to provide bamboo light weight furniture to Tata Institute of Social Science Office in Guwahati Campus, Assam. Portable furniture and architecture is one of our unique expertise and we are working on it to export out of Assam.
  2. 2. PROJECTS: FARM HOUSE IN NOIDA: The requirement of the client was to build a temporary structure which can be used as a farm house in outskirts of Noida in a SEZ area. The plots are allotted for the purpose of farm houses near the river but the construction has to be in temporary in nature. Therefore many have used metal hollow section along with corrugated sheets to make a building envelope but that it not just unsustainable but create lot of heat in already worse climate. Here we provided a complete bamboo structure with all the load calculation. The looks just another conventional RCC or load bearing structure but is crafted with Bamboo only. LOUNGE AT JIM’S RETREAT: This project is one of the first initiatives in proposing a portable bamboo structure. Since the design brief was to construct a open bamboo structure mostly used for the gatherings for the tourists and camps visiting The Jim Corbett national Park. The budget was tight and we had to give a structural consultancy to the already designed form. We proposed to give joinery details in such a way that the whole structure can be assembled on site by just nut bolting to save the execution time. We are now also capable of manufacturing this portable architecture in our workshop in Darang called DEW. Here we have sate of art machineries required to treat bamboo to last DEW. for 50 years and work on the joinery of bamboo. Such portable kit of pre designed structures can be transported to the site, ready to assemble. Our research on bamboo in India and the challenges in executing bamboo architecture in comparison with other Southeast Asian countries have brought us to this unique solution which is also very affordable and solves various other transportation problems. We as a team were also involved in training unemployed youth in northeast in this type of construction system by conducting bamboo workshops.
  3. 3. WORKSHOPS CONDUCTED IN NORTHEAST INDIA: GANGTOK, SIKKIM: BAMBOO WORKSHOP, GANGTOK, SIKKIM: 9TH TO 14TH MAY 2011 Conducted by department of Handloom and Handicrafts, Gangtok, Sikkim workshop was intended to re introduce bamboo as a structural material in construction. Our target group was young unemployed youth and the enthusiast architectural students.. This picture shows a simple shed constructed by the participants using the modern technique of nut bolting unlike traditional tying of bamboo to achieve strong joints. BAMBOO WORKSHOP, SHILLONG, MEGHALAYA: 20TH JULY TO 30TH JULY 2011 After the success in Sikkim the Forest depart of Meghalaya invited us to conduct a similar workshop in Shillong. The venue was Lady Hydari Park which is a hangout place for tourist and local people in the central city. Even this workshop saw participants coming from all over the country from different backgrounds. Some were govt employees, unemployed youths, students of Architecture and even architects practicing vernacular stuff in Haryana. We also gave a presentation on Bamboo as a resource in Gulabrao Devkar Architecture College, Jalgaon, Maharashtra.
  4. 4. SDPS COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE: 28TH MARCH TO 3RD APRIL 2013 There is no course or institution to give formal training on bamboo architecture in India and now that many young architects and students are interested in Bamboo Architecture we conduct bamboo workshops to introduce them to bamboo as a construction material giving them an opportunity and confidence to use bamboo as a building material but with students of architecture, it is not enough to just understand the construction technology but to study the material itself with respect to its structural properties through some experiments and evolve the innovative and site specific technology. We called this a intuitive design process involving study of space grammar and material behavior. Apart from delivering our consultancy for bamboo Architecture and Interior Design, we are promoting bamboo in a unique way by publishing a newsletter called: THE BAMBOO PROPHECY The Bamboo Prophecy is a newsletter published by ABC since 2011 to promote bamboo by sharing success stories of other entrepreneurs in bamboo and prophesying new opportunities in Bamboo sector. Our latest issue was published in the World Bamboo Congress 2012 hosted at Antwerp, Belgium. It talks about the Bamboo practices in India and abroad, scope and opportunities in this upcoming trend and advertises the small entrepreneurs who are struggling to make it big. This was appreciated on the event of World Bamboo Congress by the Director and now we have offers of publishing it on their web site. CONTACT: Ar. Prerna Jayant Palekar 09404489636 Ar.
