The Dr. Babu Jagjivan Ram Training Institute and Research Centre in Bengaluru is set across 2, 00,000 sq ft. By studying the Mobius strip in different configurations the firm seeks to create a space that is differentiated by its forward-thinking approach. The Mobitorium is an inspiration from the seamlessness of a Möbius strip translated into an architecturally planned auditorium; a culmination of interesting interlinked volumes to naturally create self-shading surfaces. Fluid architectural spaces with a climate responsive facade adds to the aesthetics of the building.
Bringing to life this institutional and commercial project of the TransStadia in Ahmedabad, the practice has shown finesse in its design sensibilities. The curvilinear form of the stadium wrapped in a customized metal facade sets the design intent on a monumental scale of multi-functionality. The structure has futuristic facilities like deploying outdoor or indoor air-conditioning that can be set depending on the nature of the event. The perforated mesh in the secondary metal skin adds a temporal dynamism to the architecture imparting a refined duality to the structure.
