Three hundred million residents will add to the urban landscape of India by 2050. This is a dramatic change over one and a half generations, and it will require us to rethink how we build our cities and our neighbourhoods.
At the same time, many Building Construction Company in Delhi like Grovy are infusing the latest engineering technologies into how residential and commercial properties are built and operated. They’re introducing different thinking about what defines a high-rise and a city.
The traditional building blueprint is simple: stacked floors, disconnected from each other, with little integration of technology and disconnected from the life of the town, except as an urban icon. Most construction companies in the capital, as well as organizations in other industries, are looking for a more social workplace, more interaction between employees and a work experience that reflects their identity. Cities are always changing, as they toss off the “inner city” stigmas of the previous generation and become places to live, work and play. As a result, the high-rise building blueprint needs to change into something more open and community-driven.
Here are just a few possibilities:
The high-rise building layout is highly stagnant, but if we can simplify it, we can create seams in which people talk to each other, interact and generate new ideas. One way to accomplish this objective is by moving the core from the centre of the building to the edge and creating common space at the heart. The more we promote visual and physical communication in buildings, the greater the chance we can move towards community, innovation and happier places to work.
Green covers are a simplistic way of incorporating nature into a high-rise. The more interesting possibility is to think of the building as an actual ecosystem — which, again, is human- or life-based. If we can include plants and fresh air in the workplace and make our buildings more organic, it will change the way we interact and perform in buildings. Perhaps we could even grow food for a building’s inhabitants within the frame of the building itself.
The fundamental, underlying principle for buildings and workplaces in the future will be to connect people and make life in our cities more sustainable. Solving it will spur us to greater innovation, synergy and new ways of thinking.
