The architecture follows suit emulating the values of the representative metamorphic beings. Towers and blocks mimic the bio-industriousness of life.
Climatic conditioning became the tectonic brief crafting fins, atriums, breezeways and the armature that reposition the ideas of openness and the outdoors within the contemporary idiom of the centre. The twin towers have a first of its kind bio atrium that reduces the ambient temperature by 5 degree C through passive cooling.
Façades are screened via mechanically ventilated glazings. Volumes and proportions between blocks allow for variations in air pressure causing the flow of wind and thereby streamlining and reducing temperature hot spots within the site. A shaded armature occupies the pedestrian length of the site, allowing a variety of activities and opportunities on the ground surface.
Can green be mainstream? The idea of green while extremely attractive almost seems unsustainable in the Indian market and thus this project built the platform of mainstream green for a then nascent development Industry in India.
Spearheaded by a tower designed by Ken Yeang, this award winning project broke several barriers between the commercial and sustainable worlds. The office blocks were designed for day lighting and the atrium emulated the rawness of the earth that dominates the Aravali mountains of this region.
