| Sustainable High Rise Housing |
This project was a Competition Entry for the International Tropic Architecture Design Competition (ITAD) 2016.
This project aims to seek innovation and sustainable design solutions in the future of green tropical living. The project should be adaptive and responsive to the changing climatic conditions, and should also encourage a liveable human environment, where human relationships and community interactions can be fostered through shared spaces and the built environment. An issue that has plagued Chennai in recent years is the problem of flooding-hence it was proposed to design a MOUND-that will act as an artificial floodplain for the water to drain into.
