Location: New Delhi, India
Leveraging site features and symmetries of the existing colonial building, our proposal builds on conserving and building on the inherent green nature of the site and its larger context. Our proposal at first sight appears as an undulating landscape scaled to frame the existing colonial axis of the site. On further engagement with the landscape a new landform emerges providing for the extended program of technology incubators, gallery spaces, and restaurants. Being a landform, it automates a sensitive response to climate through passive heating and cooling methodologies.
