Award Entry

A 'jewel' for the new central business district of Mumbai 

In the 21st Century, what we will build will not be the same as what we were building in the 20th Century. Buildings are no longer about concrete, steel and glass, but also the new intangible materials of technology, multimedia, intelligence and interactivity.

The form of the architecture is one that symbolises with optimism about the future and of the 21st Century. The symbolic 'planet' form is further stretched to cater for 13 levels of office accommodation, deriving a 'Egg' shaped building. This 'Egg' is further orientated and skewed at an angle to create both a strong visual language as well as to alleviate the solar gain of the building. By using this 'Egg' shape, compared to a conventional building, this building has approximately 10-20% less surface area.

The architecture is sleek and computer designed, with engineering that creates a building of extremely high quality and geometric sophistication. This building will act like a worthy neighbour to the esteemed neighbouring buildings of the district.
