The Beyond green: the multi-hued future of architecture designed by K.S.Ranganath Architecture is located in Chennai, India. The design of the project is an attempt at embracing technology, aesthetics, analysis and imagination to create a whole which draws from the strength of each to generate architecture which hopefully shelters, inspires and enriches use.
Reinforced concrete was envisaged to be used as the primary construction material for its potential to integrate architecture and structure into a synergistic unity. Structure and architecture, then, would become inseparable and lead to a beauty which would be purposeful as it would be aesthetically pleasing.
Inspired by the trees dotting the site, the architectural form springs from the ground with a circular trunk like a column, disturbing little land at its feet. It branches outward to support rotated cantilever floors much like the petals of a flower, offering landscaped terraces at each level and an almost column-free interior.
