The project has been conceived & further developed from the conjectured effects & aftermaths of floods & drastic sea storms in the proximity of aquatic areas.
Tentative application zones
a. extreme emergency situations like tsunami on the entire eastern ghat comprising big cities like Chennai under the alert zone
b. to cope with global warming, considering major cities like Kolkata, Mumbai, and Chennai etc.
c. regular floods
The thought process behind form selection & appropriate usage is vast & covers the following ideas:
derivative of a sphere, which is well proved to be aerodynamic, stable & one of the most energy efficient forms.
The enclosure needs to be buoyant & water tight. It is completely water tight & follows the principal of buoyancy.
. more enclosed less open
temporary structure design needs to be more enclosing space rather open. The structure’s small air cut outs endows it with proper ventilation & lighting
shall be modular & plug-in/out type.
Double level planning with toilet housed in the ground level.
Ground level 6 adults + 2 children
First level 10 adults + 3 children
Toilet 3 wc
outer deck allows daytime spill over area
Structure & Services
central hollow metal column which, houses the pipelines for waste & usable water at the toilet.
The structure will catch rainwater & will re use it,
kinetic metal deck
according to the level of surrounding water, it can be elevated
hollow metal column housing pipelines
pneumatic type polystyrene material as covering(water proof)
Factory made wire mesh with pin joined connection for frequent transport & re use.
temporary floors supported on c channels of steel
can be used at earthquake prone sites
could be equipped with solar cells & bio gas units
