MIXED USE SPACES- AN APPROACH FOR DESIGNING BUSINESS CENTRE AT BANDRA KURLA COMPLEX
To create a 'mixed use space' in a extremely sophisticated upcoming commercial area. A place which might become definition and landmark for surroundings. It should be a place where suburban families can enjoy not only higher-end shopping, but also meals, movies, concerts or simply a stroll. Efforts should be on community development. Structure to be organized to conglomerate people-gathering spaces, social activity spaces and entertainment spaces.
In a nutshell, an architectural system which allows the exploration and the realization of concepts involving multiple spaces, both physical and virtual and multiple media channels for enhancing the human-to-human communication. The human variable must be positioned back in the loop of mixed use space design and should be kept at the core of the narrative through the participation of users as “inter-actors”. This project was done in the year 1998.
