‘Cybertecture’ design offers provocative intelligence systems in India with the Cybertecture Egg office
James Law Cybertecture International has designed a new form of architecture, typified by new intangible materials of technology, multimedia, intelligence and interactivity, reports Mariya Rasheeda.
Plot C70 of Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai, which is the new ‘Manhattan’ of India and currently the most expensive plot of land in the country, has been selected for this unique and innovative project that will be the first office building with an egg-shaped, accommodating 13 floors and providing enough space for customizable living and working spaces.
The concept was inspired, according to the designers, by considering the world as an ecosystem allowing life to evolve. Elements of the design and intelligence systems will work together to give the building’s inhabitants the ‘best space to work in’. And this includes monitoring their health. Within the building, there will be a series of innovative systems such as ‘cybertecture health’ in the washroom which is designed to keep track of the inhabitant’s health including blood pressure and weight. The data collected may be retrieved and sent to a doctor if deemed necessary.
The 32,000 sq m egg-shaped build will accommodate 13 floors of offices bringing together iconic architecture, environmental design, intelligent systems, and new engineering to create an awe-inspiring landmark in the city.
