Rainbow neighbourhood is seen as an opportunity to solve many problems that occur in communities or slums of India. Not only to improve the problems, but also to give an iconic representation for the neighbourhood, extolling the values of coexistence and sustainability.
The solution to a problem, sometimes becomes a mirror to a neighbourhood. The slums of India have a problem of overlapping of functions. Animals and derivative works are mixed with people, buildings do not have channelling and separation waste water and self extensive construction leads to less compact growth and unsanitary.
The building rainbow, seeks to separate the various functions that occur in the community, in the same building. Looking to release the maximum compactness of soil density and release the street and rises to go under and not to provide barriers.
The shape comes from a suitable section that addresses the program separates the functions and offers a great street. This section is to maintain the tradition, typologies and customs of India provided together with housing shops, and separate from other functions. Subsequently, add multiple streets one above the other footage meeting the requirements. Finally, there is an arc for direct access to each covered internal street from the main street.
The building offers an answer to the problems of the slums from the sustainability applied in various fields. It must be sustainable in its construction, produce energy for the neighbourhood, be healthy, and able to be sustainable in terms of generating employment for the people of the community and the neighbourhood.
- Using Industrial construction system (Compact Habit):
a/ reduces in 33% the ecological footprint
b/ reduces in 70% time devoted to the construction process
c/ reduces in 85% the risk of the construction process.
- solar orientation, solar panels, energy production for the community.
- debris recycling plant located in the community. It promotes community clean and in the neighbourhood, while providing work for some of its members. HEALTH - Clean up the Slums:
a/downspouts provide homes with private bathroom
b/establish order in the community. Separate animals of people, different functions are developed separately in one place.
We propose a self-sufficient community:
a/ Electricity is provided by solar panels placed on the deck
b/ drinking water is achieved through large deposits of rainwater harvesting, which function as water treatment plants and pumped to the houses
c/ community adopts recycling in your building materials are thrown on the roof, and recycled by gravity to obtain a final product sellable.
d/horizontal farms employ community while producing food and investigates how to produce
The proposal is able to maximize the parameters given by the competition.
The project seeks to look for an optimistic shape able to fulfil the needs of the inhabitants and the same time being able to be a billboard for the rest of the community.
A rainbow with multiple-layered scheme able to bring light after the rain.
