      Responding to the cultural heritage of India and inspired by its energy of response towards a new cultural, economic and spiritual context our project concentrates upon five salient issues: 1. The transformation of water. 2. The creation of urban open space. 3. The use of friendly and understood materials. 4. The creation of ‘liberated’ dwellings. 5. The creation of a community

        Campus WU is a special place for research and education with a unique atmosphere. This exceptionality must be reflected in the countenance of its architecture. The university complex seeks to become a landmark, radiating beyond the city limits. Its architecture should be conceived as a subject of collective fascination.

          Located on a bend of the ‘broadwater’ that forms a penicula – which clasps a lake – we create a garden of surprises, yet with a simple basic organization. A central Plaza is flanked by the Theatres and the New Art Museum which, upon reaching the edge of the Lake, is proscribed by a Promenade that has continued the line of the Bridge. The scheme is spiritually and physically a collage of events – inspired by the overlaying of creative experiences of every genre and every level of formality. Layering them first, with large forms that are then carved into by the release of caves and ‘scoops’. Entwined with paths, pads, meadows and thickets that lyrically engage with each other whilst at the same time enjoying the gentle audacity of local incidents: such as pockets that open up from hidden car parking, or hedges, ramps and arms that sometimes delve, sometimes encircle and sometimes even fly out over the water. Together they form the components of this varietous Garden.

            Beginning April 6, SCI-Arc is pleased to present “Towards Comfo-Veg,” a large scale, site-specific installation designed for the SCI-Arc Gallery by architect and artist Peter Cook and partner Gavin Robotham of London-based CRAB studio. Building on CRAB’s internationally recognized experimental work, Towards Comfo-Veg introduces an almost completely light-tight, multimedia experiential space welcoming visitors through a single point of entry and leading towards hints of an invented and dreamlike world. A dark, blue tunnel filled with a reassuring yet peculiar soundtrack, introduces a series of peep holes filled with small objects and pictures, further augmented by an additional video projection at the end of the corridor, showcasing CRAB projects and fascinations. A series of winglike, lightweight kites sit above, reminding the viewer of the underlying and consistent search for “lightness.” Turning into the main space, the embryonic Comfo-Veg, a soft sofa sculpture, lines the length of the installation with a backrest of varying height. Created out of a continuous snake of veg colored fabric, the Comfo-Veg invites visitors to sit down and admire a more abstract series of projections of future CRAB ideas. A soundtrack in this area will reinforce the ambiguous nature of the creeping forms and augment the two territories, while a third soundtrack—just before you leave—picks up on the chatter of the CRAB Studio itself.

Responding to the cultural heritage of India and inspired by its energy of response towards a new cultural, economic and spiritual context our project concentrates upon five salient issues: 1. The transformation of water. 2. The creation of urban open space. 3. The use of friendly and understood materials. 4. The creation of ‘liberated’ dwellings. 5. The creation of a community We aim to not only ‘take’ and ‘use’ this piece of land, but create from it a new urban mixture that gives back more than it takes and at the same time enjoys the view. Bioclimatic concepts - Every apartment is facing south and enjoying the landscape. - South facade, designed with a new system to purify water. Giving back pure water to the Yamuna River and improving directly the environment. - Access in the north facade. Creating cross ventilation. - North facade with hydroponics vegetables: Farming our own food. Minimizing the ecologic foot print. - Farming micro algae ponds in the garden. Consuming Co2 providing O2 and biomass. - Heating and Cooling with Sun energy. Absorption machines. - West facades with Bamboo-vertical louvers positioned to avoid “bad Sun”. - Local bricks are creating the horizontal platform and sculpting the shape. - Roofs: collecting rainwater
