New Delhi is at serious risk of air pollution, but environmentally conscious buildings are making great strides in erasing the traces of the past. Architectural structures also get their share of the projects developed to make the city more livable. Nature-focused structures are rising all over New Delhi.
Outré House and Hyperion buildings located within the borders of New Delhi are also among the environmentally sensitive architectural structures. The architectural design concepts that dominate the world today are created by projects integrated with nature. These buildings in India's capital city are a reflection of modern architecture and are intended to decorate the city's skyline.
The project, undertaken by Anagram Architects, started in 2011 and was completed in 2015. Outré House attracts attention with its structure using natural materials. By blending natural materials with conventional building materials, the building aims to create a connection between the two. The building's handmade skeleton also saves its design from monotony. The sleek and modern style of the building's design is also reflected in the interior architecture.
Built as a home, office, and living space, the Hyperions project was undertaken by Paris-based Vincent Callebaut Architectures. Started in 2014, the project is expected to be completed in 2020. Hyperions, consisting of 6 36-storey towers, each consisting of residential and office spaces, has chosen timber as the main material to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Aiming to produce more energy than it consumes, the building wants to change the balance both in New Delhi and the rest of the world.
In a city like New Delhi, which is in dire need of radical and lasting solutions, environmentally conscious projects like these keep people's hopes green.
New Delhi is feeling the effects of global warming, overcrowding, poor decisions and misconceptions more and more dramatically, and its struggle to solve these problems is appreciated by the city's inhabitants, but it is not enough. In order to take bigger steps, decision-makers need to act quickly and return the city, home to such a special culture, to its former glory.
