Portfolio of works

The series of academic and professional works featured here are mostly done individually. Works displayed under 'ARCHIPOLIS' are almost all under construction or completed. Although I have mostly used computer generated views due to unavailability of high resolution photographs or to explain the design from a better angle. Same strategy taken for some of the projects done with Partha Das & Associates. In academic section projects are edited or briefed on the study portion and mostly the proposals are covered as it is primarily a design portfolio.

  4. 4. campus for Indian Institute for Public Health (IIPH), Hyderabad (Competition Entry) Public Health Foundation of India called for entries for their new campus ‘Indian Institute at Public Health (llPHl, Hyderabad in an open design competition. We came up with a proposal which responds strongly to the geographical leatures oi the site acting as a guideline along with the design briel. More than 50% area of the 43.04 acre undulaled site was not suitable for buildings due to high slope. There~ tore the design onginated after the geographical features vinthin and around the site was identified and their impact was considered in the planning and onentaiion oi various blocks. The briei mentioned the expected look and leel oi the campus and accordingly a low-nse and well spreadout network of spaces evolved around a central hub‘ where an informal student-teacher interaction lS encouraged.

Use ol steel and glass has been minimized. Concrete and brick is used as the predominant materiat which is also easy to maintain. The semi-covered corridors connect the various blocks. The use ol pergola is both functional and acts as a unifying design element when the campus is conceived as a whole. The water body with its stepped seating which acts as a student interaction and rec- reational area oools down the south breeze as it flows over it and then passes through the central plaza area. only the common facility block stands high and is treated as a landmark structure. it housed gymnasium, caleteria, library and carries the water tank above its head. The tower being the tallest structure in the campus is visible from most at the areas and helps to orient onesell within the campus.

  8. 8. The New School of Planning and Architecture Campus at Vasant Kl. l|'| ], New Delhi (Competition Entry) The core concept of the design emerges out of the concerns expressed in the introductory note of the design brief and addresses the need to develop a contemporary architectural vocabulary without com promising the issues of energy elficiency and suslainabilfly. The consistency of the built tomi is some- what dictated by the height restridion of 17m. applicable for the area. As outdoor activities are as in» pcrtant as indoor activities in a college campus, development of user friendly outdoor spaces was given equal Importance In the design. Sensitive. restrained design solutions. seeking to reestablish the strong relationship between people and human scale of the built-environment have always found to have lasting values. Such responses to today's actual conditions are not only appropriate, but in fact. they are deeply reassuring. They remind us that the immediacy of human contact nnot be replaced by machines, however powerful. Therefore. it was decided to develop a predominantly pedestrianised campus where all buildings would be linked with a continuous flow of courtyards and plazas.

  10. 10. The New School of Planning and Architecture Campus at Vasant Kunj, New Delhi (Competition Entry) The campus of a design school should leave a lasting impression on it‘s students and help shape their design ideologies. A col- lege campus is not only a phase of transition between adolescence and adulthood for the students but also a place where people of diverse backgrounds and attitudes come together for an intense period of study and communication. building a society that is at once transitory and lasting. A campus therefore has to play the role of a guardian and motivator. It should not be intimidating, but friendly and inviting. It should have the look and feel of a mall medieval town rather than the harsh and rigid formal appearance of a metro city. It was decided to design the sequence and flow of pedestrian movement with buildings designed to provide definition and climate con- lrol. The urban spaces of our medieval cities are taken for granted by the users. They seem to be so natural and unassuming that the soft nature of its urban design do not register on our minds. In a design school campus. the design of enclosures and move- ments has to be deliberate. The experience should be sharp as compared to a mediaeval town as it should leave a lasting im- pression on the formative minds of the young designers so that their untrained eyes become sensitive to the language of design of urban spaces.

  12. 12. The New School of Planning and Architecture campus at Vasant Kunj, New Delhi (Competition Entry) The eastem side ol the gorge is suitable lor the residential zone as the hostels require less floor to lloor height and the area oliers better privacy for the residents, A large area at the centre of this area is relatively flat and was earmarked lor the playground. The gorge etlectively splits the site into two unequal portions and leaves just about enough space tor a road connection on the northem side where it almost touches the site boundary. It was decided to propose bndges across the 30 m gap to connect the two sides and to utilize the contours at the southem end of the gorge as an open air theatre. The open air theatre would also help define the edge cl > '. the depression and protect the slopfinf collapsing. 4 -- —a—, -4-c . .¢ - Jedi j . u—__ mlmlrzmmntnwmntlonmucnulmcx / _ 1. . _..

Maximizing the use of locally available materials and a conscious design approach ensuring the scope of utilizing tra- ditional building techniques involving local craftsmen to achieve the look and feel of a niccbari village. (The floor oi tradtional niccbari huts are made at bamboo sheets that permit cool air circulation and works as a natural air-conditioner. The space under the hut is used for daily activities and also for keeping the racing ‘hodi‘ boat). The covered wooden corridor connection be- tween huts are also traditional design element and used as an ettective means of linkage between separated building mass providing better ventilation to individual blocks and minimizing circulation areas at the same time. The existing hexagonal guest cottages are ineflicient in tenns of conventional furniture arrangement and circulation. Furthermore the hexagonal hut forms no more reflect the happenings in local architecture (As the log pillars and thatched roofed traditional huts were made hemispherical bee-hive structures for additional stability previ- ously. lhey are now gradually replaced by rectangular structures made ot cemented pillars and brick tiles). Therefore the cot- tages and dining areas are converted into squares with tour ad- ditional oolumns for each block. The availability of extra space and greater etficiency justifies the addition. r““““"“““"“‘t l _ / """‘°”‘/ FIRST FLOOR PLAN SQM. typiizl viewot the proposed double storied cottage lrorn the sea side (soim-west) viewottt1ebriid'rtgvrtti| eapproecttingalongttievelii: itei‘med

  33. 33. Residence at Chunchura, Hooghly Living in an old wooden bungalow inside the Khowang Tea Estate in Assam lor over a decade. the Chakraborty lainily had developed deep attachment with some elements of old Bntish bungalow architecture which had become a pan ol their daily lilestyle. For somebody getting used to such vast spaces and inspired by intricate wooden carvings invariably gets handicapped in the thought of stay- ing in a house designed with minimum space standards, Therefore, when they decided to build some sort of a vacation house in their home town. they wanted to bring in some ol the shapes and spaces in their new home. Wrapped in a con- temporary envelop the building is treated with elements such as the spiral stair‘ case, an alcove in the first floor treated like a rriantelpiece or the pergola hanging over the porlico like a pitched roof projection The top of the spiral stair-room is treated as a wind towerwhich is a traditional architectural element and are often part cl residential houses in hot regions. The function of this tower is to catch cooler breeze that prevail at a higher level above the ground and to direct it into the intenor ol the building. A landscaped garden around the building with trees bearing course loliage acts as a sound butter and cools down the surrounding. Client - Mrs. Sheuly Chakraborty Plot Size - 2354 sqfl.

  34. 34. Residence at Bally, Howrah A small plot with an existing mango tree and a water-well on its two comers and narrow lane access on north and south ends was the setup for this design. The clients requirement was of a two storied residence with provision of renting out the ground ttoor in future. So, each ttoor had to be designed with flexibility and future provision as individual flats with service areas lying one above another to minimize both oonstniction and maintenance cost. Road access from two sides called in for two separate entries (W rented, the entrance of each flat thus can become separate) to the building. Conscious decision had been made to save and integrate the mango tree and the well into the design and the building sets back on the southeastem comer to make room for the tree and a chamfered ground floor on the southwest comer accommodates the well.

Chanda Plot Size -1215 sqtt Built—up Area -1350 sqtt a bird's e e view focuses on the desin elements WAYEILWELL ground floor plan ,1 site plan scale approx 1:400 Protruding chajias and window boxes wrap the building like a second skin and keep the building interior shaded lrom summer heat and monsoon rain. Special protec» two measures have been taken through simple design elements on the western facade which is nonnally ex- posed to maximum solar radiation. Windows either ad‘ equately shaded or protected behind extended fins which otters dllfused light and ventilation with minimal exposure to heat. Brick Jallis of diflerent pattem are proposed as an attempt to give the building its aesthetic identity in a cost etfective way. The small pergola above the first floor terrace otters some shade and shadow- scapes a playful pattem throughout the day as an addi- tion of the buildings aesthetics. The rough-cast plaster renders the building surface with micro shadows, hence reducing the direct radiation on the building.
  35. 35. Residence at Maheshtala, Batanagar The residence is centered on a grand staircase. The stair well conceived as a mini-atnum that establishes a visual connection between the two floors The client being hugely attracted by the grand staircases olold palaces had put a top priority on it and although that fascination when conceived inside the residence in its miniature form took almost one fourth of the total build able area on the small plot. the client wanted to go ahead with it. The corner plot was also suitable lor the conceptual development other habitable spaces as a wrap around the staircase and treat it more like a special element towering high from the rest of the building mass. A! ) double height pergola keeps the south west facade in par- tial shadow and thus minimizing solar heat gain.

  36. 36. Residence at CG-54, Salt Lake City, Kolkata The owner of an existing one stoned residence in Salt Lake City wanted to extend the vertical limit with the addition of another lloor and wished it the com- pleted building can possess the look and teel oi a green bungalow. As municipal rules of that area permits that building profile can be extended up to the penphery ol the site in front, we had an opportunity to play with depth So. we consciously added some features to change the monotony ol the building and changed the ngid peripheral building lines into something more playful and at the same time hinctional. An additional layer of vegetation was also added wherever possible with the introduction of planters at various levels in an attempt to keep the build‘ ing cool and inhabitants healthy.

  37. 37. Gouripur Kali Temple" Birati, Kolkata Engulled in the surrounding multistoned buildings, this small butspiritually promi- vs‘ nent kali temple was seeking a strong visual identity. Built in utmost simplicity in the ‘50's, the temple soon started to get a strong oi pilgrimage through travelers passing the temple along Jessore road, Presently, the all day long raining coins from passing vehicles as donations is an example of the temple's popularity and importance among it‘s worshippers. This had led the temple trust to conven the existing old and dilapidated structure to a more prominent and noticeable one lrom the approaching Jessore road. The challenge was to construct the temple crown without disturbing the garhha gnha as shifting the idol is considered blasphemous. To achieve a proportionate temple crown, positioning of support columns was vital but as tying up the col- umns below ground meant those were to go thought the gartiha griha which was not possible. So. we came up with the couple column concept in which the inner ones are to support the temple crown and the outer ones to take the load of sur- rounding verandah root. The outer ones were tied up with the inner ones as well as to each other to resist the continuous vibration caused by heavy tralflc through Jessore road and nearby Dum Dum Airport runway. Visual permeability to the small garhha gnha was also necessary and a strong visual connection has been established with the surrounding verandah and outside.

Undergraduate Thesis Project for the degree Bachelor of Architecture Department of Architecture, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. 2004-2005 Being the biggest city in eastem India and the only metro for the region the city is much expected to culture it‘s art resource and showcase it locally, nationally as well as intemationally through seminars, workshops, exhibitions. festivals etc. This, not only improves a city‘s postcard image in sync with it's ethos. but also create job op- portunities for the artisans and help the art forms to prosper. Any city that does not attract tounsls for it's art treasure is by no means a happening one in tenns of culture and heritage and therefore, when it comes to kolkata. the city most definitely perfonris below-par when it comes to promoting its cultural heritage. When most of us avoid the fact by accusing the city's degrading urban image. tratfic problems, pollution and climate for the negligence we just can not avoid the fact that the city still could not come up with multi lacility interactive cultural hub of intemational standard. The closest we can think of is Rablndra Sadan complex which has over the years has become the nerve centre of Bengali culture and it is the place where the city's culturally conscious intellectuals converge in great numbers. Being located at the heart of the city and backed up by number of goings-ons to choose from, the only things that may go against it in terms ot its potential to come up as the multi lacility cultural hub are the limited area of the complex where further growth is not possible, absence of basic facilities and amenities such as parking space. food court, adequate sized fairground etc, rigid planning yielding of greater running cost. secunty con- cerns due to the centrifugal layout arrangement of buildings lnfact the complex is a result of a series of various developments such as art gallenes, theaters, auditori- ums etc coming up under different initiative and within a vast time range of more than 60 years and the individual buildings within the complex are results ofan organic development of uninspinng quality except the man auditorium ‘NANDAN' which serves as the main venue of the ‘Kolkata Film Festival'- an intemational event that quite enthusiastically followed by, considenng the vibrant cine culture the city has developed over the years. But the recent flurry in corporate work culture and ever so long working hours have made the bulk of the educated young generation away from this venue since the commercial and pan-administrative capital has strategically been shifted to Salt Lake, Sector V and Rajarhat Newtown, which are some distance away from this cultural hub. The comparatively modem and planned govt. run ‘The Eastem Zonal Cultural Center‘ (EZCC) located in Salt Lake City has also strangely failed to create interest among people although the center offers quite a handful ol cultural events over the years and houses an auditonum. a theater, open airtheater. art gallery, workshops, fair ground and food court within the complex. Though this center has done some major work in identifying and promoting various folk arts of the eastem India. the public response and presence has been discouraging. The disappointing performance of this cultural centre with so much potential can be atlnbuled to it's isolated lo cation in salt lake city, uninspiring design of the building. absence of nearby evening hotspots or other public plazas & administrabve failure in promoting the centre to the people. It is probably a combination ofall that leaves it with very poor attendance dunng kolkata film festival. So. a centre which has tailed to gain a city level promi- nence can not be expected to serve as the cultural hub of the city in events of national and intemational prominence. -rig lfchrlicuf in; soil or iiiaa min; has om used in lrida iai over a on yiais ins ssiii JS(d 2 Ravana anoirinunan Kaiighal smooi oipariing ciaac ioiigiai plitI< ing ongnaico ii iii ioinaeniiy aw, in ‘he iinisy nlKa‘ghal iraii Telltale Ka‘v; h3l y Kolkata riapan-igsoiaraosmaoiiinaosowuea is: 1 slnctsdiooul tltdl! pam- . ng 3 PM iioiriirig s oortsiocrerl an mpttr‘-all lorrn oi ossan airing mi aiginiaeo rniinini imaieivia; annai it Fun in l'E '2tl* m'lltl7y The oirioosairiro pita paihlirlg inst: oaoiiniu menu! oliagaiiiam to the iniions oi Dllg'llVl§ irsitllg no rioriieirongn: i Wn)ill‘IlDdllI6fl)t—lertWSll‘EBtHSl! ‘gi5llglY! k)§*liIGSlv l --2 , . * V ', ’1 ,0 ‘, llU . _ L ‘W1 13 KOLKATA FILM FESTIVAL i'i: { 2 , , . . a Ktflllala Film Festival (KFF) ls Zrld oldest international film festival in India , held in Kolkata.
