Police Bhawan, Bangalore

We received 2nd runner up in the architectural competition for providing architectural design concept.

Bangalore's lakes are being killed. But nature being resilient, given the slightest chance it bounces back, and some of Bangalore lakes are wonderful examples of this. Urban wetlands are priceless treasures. Urban wetland management unfortunately is not much of a concept in most of India. Usually, the city decides to build a big "garden" around lakes, which means manicured lawns, paved paths, lots of flowers & trees that don't usually grow in wet lands, and a complete destruction of the wetland around lakes. This usually ends up slowly killing the lake. 

The Urgency of the matter focused upon is so strong & forceful that attempts are being made to save the ITBT city’s remaining wetland resources ; at least, as relics, of  ecologically  managed  biodiversity  as public utility resources and as the last of the lung spaces  to enable the Bangalore  Metropolis  to avoid a suffocating death. Our project proposal is focused on healing the wetland of the site and proposing an Architecture which is Majestic to be fitting the 100 glorious Years of KSRP. At the same time the building sits  very softly on the site,  using  all the five elements of Nature—Air , Earth ,Water, Fire(Sun), and space .

Beautification and Infrastructure developemnt of Cubbon park and around Vidhan Soudha

This park was designed as Historical (Heritage) Park by considering design facts like ecological -sustainability landscape, socio-culture, economic, security of the city. A good practice of architecture maintains that sustainability should be an integral part of the design process. The goals associated with creating a sustainable built environment include avoiding or otherwise minimizing  the impact on resources; conserving eco-systems , using renewable resources; avoiding waste where possible by reuse, recycling and recovery; supporting the general realization of human potential and happiness; and creating healthy built environments for present and future generations.
