In the 21st Century, buildings will be different from 20th Century, they are no longer about concrete, steel and glass, but also the new intangible materials of technology, multimedia, intelligence and interactivity. The new term being used to describe this new form of architecture is “Cybertecture.”
This project is a “Cybertecture” office building that brings together Iconic Architecture, Environmental Design, Intelligent Systems, and New Engineering together to create the most innovative building for the city of Mumbai and for India in the 21st Century.
The concept was inspired by looking at the world in terms of the planet being an ecosystem that allows life to evolve. The concept for this building is rather like planet earth, where a sustainable ecosystem is derived from an integrated and seamless Cybertecture that is evolving to give the building inhabitants the very best space to work in. The analogy to the form of the building is for the beautiful planet form to “land” on a site in Mumbai, and create a new Cybertecture ecosystem for people who will use this building.
