Design Brief: The objective is to design a multipurpose commercial complex that engulfs the bold nature of the space giving it a dynamic and monumental character and also attracting travelers and tourists. To build a place that caters both employment to the nearby residents and a jovial spot to the travelers.
Play of lines: The concept is following the behavior of lines how they tend to change the character of the space forming planes and then the volumes. Hence created a juxtaposing on a contoured site- a fun shopping Centre and a business Centre.
The planar in DE constructivism is creating a completely opposite character to the context, it’s not blending with the nature around, and it’s emerging out of one. The idea is to drive the travelers in and serve them a spot for refreshment or become the ultimate destination.
The steep slopes have been converted as a highlighting feature of the complex expecting them to be visited the most hence making this design suitable for such a site profile. Making this complex visible from distance.
