THE PRESENCE OF NATURAL LIGHT INSIDE THE BUILDING

My idea is to have an all-inclusive building structure, but the building structure should be able to use more natural light. The shape of this structure is inspired by the eggs. I would like to briefly describe the infrastructure in terms of the oval shape as the sunlight is higher than the other two structures compared to the circular or rectangular structure.

THE PRESENCE OF NATURAL LIGHT INSIDE THE BUILDING


The initial focus of my research was based on the specialties in Indian architecture and Western architecture. I got fond on the concept of temple architecture among the Indian architectural designs. The bedrock of Indian architecture is the 5 senses. Without those 5 senses Indian architecture is unpleasant. From then on, my prime focus was on those 5 senses. Gradually, I specifically started focusing on the sense of vision, which has lead me into the specialties of sunlight. By understanding the benefits of sunlight on a construction, my aim was to develop a building structure which can utilize those benefits to it’s maximum. Then my efforts was into finding a shape which can absorb maximum sunlight. I noticed the spread of sunlight when fallen on an egg and it brought me into the concept of an egg shaped building which can attract more sunlight. The building structure of my research was given an egg shape further.The next step taken towards the structure was to resolve it’s demerits. Inorder to control the heat generated through direct falling of sunlight on the construction, a design was developed in relation to the structure of a mushroom. The building can track the sun by following a similar mechanism of the sunflower (heliotropism). The structure can be made to rotate in water while tracking the sunlight.The final result of my research is a floating and rotating egg shaped building which can track the sun to obtain maximum sunlight at a speed exactly similar to that of tilting of the Earth, without producing much heat inside but maximum sunlight by implementation of a structure similar to mushroom.A construction combining all the above ideas is really unique and can influence both mentally and physically
