The project is an urban redevelopment project. The site is in the midst of Bapunagar, an industrial area in the city of Ahmedabad. The plot area is approximately 2.7 hectares. The basic programs in the project are commercial in nature whilst accommodating public functions as well.
The concept revolves around the game of Tetris. The game is based on composition of geometrical shapes, which here are translated into volumes in spatial terms. These volumes are extruded and scooped out from the form of buildings in order to create several spatial experiences. These actions allow for terraces and balconies which volumetrically affect the built form in individuality and affect the pedestrian paths along these buildings because of the changing nature of forms overhead.
