Top Ten Modern Indian Architecture (at the height of the boom)

6 Jul

We all are aware of the booming real estate all around us these days, be it Chennai, Bangalore or Gurgaon. Malls & Offices are becoming more and more sophisticated and are being talked about in international circles too!!

Here is a selection of some of the top most ventures on Indian soil being talked about the most. Includes Siruseri too! May be you have already received it as a forward, I have not, but either way this is sure worth a dekho 😀 If you are unable to view this at office due to the nonsensical Websense I would suggest you to try & view it outside office.
1.Ramoji Film City

Ramoji Film City (RFC) is the world’s largest integrated film studio complex, at nearly 2,000 acres. It is also one of Asia’s most popular tourism and recreation centers.

You can read more about it from Wikipedia[Ramoji Film City]. There are some pictures as well.

2. Infosys Global Education Center

Infosys is one of India’s IT giants with the sort of infrastructure that would make any engineer want to work there. But by any standards this is just amazing!

If you want to know why this is indeed such a masterpiece you might want to take a look at these photos (40 in number owned by Eric Sanders).

3.Bandra Worli Sea Link

The Bandra Worli Sea Link is a 8-lane, twin carriageway cable-stayed bridge with pre-stressed concrete viaduct approaches, which will link Bandra and the western suburbs of Mumbai with Worli and downtown Mumbai, and is the first phase of the proposed West Island Freeway system.

Take a look at the official site MSRDC.org

4.Mall Of India

Mall of India is a shopping mall based in Gurgaon, India. It is the largest mall build in India. It has 4 million sq ft sprawling property that is being touted by its developer DLF Universal as the biggest mall in India.

 

5. Tata Consultancy Services Campus

This structure due to be completed in 2010 was designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. This Mumbai campus is said to very ecologically friendly and incorporates elements such as a jali, a traditional carved screen used for centuries as both sunshade and ventilated wall. Tata Consultancy Services is not stranger to eco-friendliness – their Chennai campus became the only campus outside the U.S.A to receive the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) Platinum ranking when it opened due to its recycling center.

 

6. Noida Tower

Hafeez Contractor proposed the Noida Tower. At 710m it would tower over all except the Burj Dubai which would top out at 800m. “The building is to look like the peaks of Himalayas, and is scheduled to be open for business by 2013. The building will contain a 50-floor five-star hotel, a 40-story glass atrium and 370,000 sq meters of shopping space.” It will be part of the Noida City Center built over 140 hectares.

 

7.Siruseri Technopark

India is no stranger to technoparks but this one sure makes the others stand in envy. This structure is created by noted Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott.

8. Environmental Township

This township is proposed to be built in Pune and schedules to be completed in 2016 with the primary focus on being environment and ecology friendly while providing a pleasurable living surrounding.

 

9.SD Towers

This twin tower project is set to redefine the skylines of Mumbai. Schedules to be completed in 2007 this modern structure boasts 60 stories and is all set to claim the title of India’s highest reaching residential towers’

 

10.Wipro Technologies Development Center
