Team : Ankita Thukral and Ishani Sangal

Key words: Democratic spaces, social reciprocity, hybrid architecture, terrace, interactive architecture


Reciprocity offers the of exchanging social status with others for mutual benefit and privileges granted by the structure another by creating gardens and terraces and these roof terraces in the building defines the major part for the interaction space being more democratic space.

The building departs from formalism and focuses on the interaction between programs and the transformation of the building volume according to its relationship with the inhabitants, the city, and the landscape. The structure consists of three main building blocks for housing, offices, and retail. There is a set of rules to plug each block and optimize the space while creating a novel program distribution. The result is a porous tower with gardens and terraces distributed throughout the entire building. An environmentally responsible cladding is equipped with manual windows. Our building ensures that there is no discrimination and is open to all fulfilling social purposes and can be inferred as democratic spaces.

It is accessible to differently able people where there is a practice of exchanging things. It is an opportunist building, which makes the most out of its multiple skills, a key player which revitalizes the urban scene and saves spaces. The floor plans represent how we combine different things to create a single floor that is creating a hybrid vertically as well as horizontally. cores are the major part that divides our building into different sections the skin used for the building is created out of a plant which changes its behavior according to the sun path. We took the form out of the plant where there is a combination of a triangle in which density changes so that every kind of light penetrated from the façade.
