KNOW THE PAST / CHALLENGE THE PRESENT / CREATE THE FUTURE DESIGN AND INNOVATİON ACADEMY, AHMADABAD-INDIA
KOINOVA is a multi-layered design and academy project that aims to include and interrelate the concepts of virtuality, greenery, and intimacy. The project derives its main source of inspiration from Indian philosophy, specifically the concepts of balance, and unity. In means of mass configuration, the project puts emphasis on additions and subtractions of fundamental geometries that create varying space and lighting qualities. Moreover, the façade configuration carries traces from traditional Indian carvings, specifically ‘Jali’ items that are used for sun shading and wind control. Within an environment of studying and engagement with greenery, Koinova aims to generate yet another means of life in Ahmedabad.
