Project: Amravati Municipal Corporation
Client: Municipal Corporation Complex
Status: Competition Entry
Concept is derived from the word “Amravati “meaning “abode of eternity” which in the worldly context could be interpreted as state of perpetual bliss. Naturally headquarters of the city with this attribute has to project the quality of imagery in tangible as well as intangible idiom. Hence the creation of an iconic wall (equivalent to a three story building) becomes the focus of entrance.
The design is an exploration of functional and spatial integration of the client’s brief to create a plan which not only satisfies the requirement of the corporation but also creates hierarchy of spaces with a huge courtyard / atrium considering the climatic region that prevails in Amravati. Courtyards have been introduced as tools of planning. Also, the fenestrations have been provided with concrete sun breakers which form an important element externally.rn
