School of Planning and Architecture – SPA – Delhi
There are codes and with are de-codes. Environment by itself has a series of relationship with its elements with a certain pattern and alike to it is the city of Delhi. It holds within it layers of architecture of different time periods and eventually today it stands as a example of a place which has held all threads together yet attaining the cosmopolitan balance required to day. The design tries and depicts the essence of the spaces in Delhi like the gallis, chowks, dhabas…etc. by coming out with spaces which code and un-code visually or as per the activity pattern. The design further developed by understanding what a convention centre means in the Indian context hence consciously efforts have been on the lines to come out with a design which drifts away from the mall culture of Delhi and to come out with an amalgamation of ethnic elements of the capital city with the new age technology.
