Stop the Ecocide:Onwards to the agroecological revolution
My name is Amlankusum. I’m a 45-year old Hindu agroecologist. For the past five years, I’ve lived with my family in the heart of a plus-energy, vertical eco-neighborhood called “Hyperions” producing more energy than it consumes. In collaboration with architects, agricultural engineers, agronomistsand farmers,I eco-conceived this garden towersproject rooted in JaypeeGreens Sports City, with the double objective of energy decentralization and food deindustrialization. My approach is holistic, combining the best of low-tech and high-tech instead ofsystematically opposing them. Our aim is to reconcile urban renaturationand small-scale farming with environment protection and biodiversity.

The office design for the corporate office for India Glycols embodies the issues concerning the workplace today, and explores the paradigm of the office space as a social activity. Sited in a non-contextual suburban area of Delhi, the setting, led to the development of an introverted scheme that would address environmental and socio-economic issues from first principles.

Our project responds to the context which is planned to be build by the time the project is completed, and to the dynamically twisted site. Our attempt is to increase density and pedestrian traffic. We strongly believe that high-rise typology is an oxymoron of sustainable development in its base and is in contradiction with promoter’s goal for a green complex. From the program we identify five major functions: Research Institute and Knowledge Centre, Offices and Incubation Centre, Hotel, Residential, and Retail-Food-Beverage. We clearly differentiate four of them in four wings grouped around two inner courts in two separate buildings (Research Institute and Offices in one building and Hotel and Residential in the other). At the area of conjunction of the two buildings we design outdoor distributing hub/plaza/promenade which connects to all functions and the underground parking garage.
