Floating Hub


Floating Hub

[re]defining transit culture of Kerala

 
We firmly believe that one day the everlasting changes of our mutable planet will take us to live in close contact with water. So from the beginning, my focus has always on this theme. And I finally created one. Each of my aim is to let man live and think in a world that seems to be unexplored, my project in fact, are not just simple building lying on water, but something beyond it. It comes to life taking their form from organic and sinuous shapes, and live taking advantage of innovative tech. This innovative project has been designed for the Public mass transportation. It is the first submerged hub as of now in Kerala. Building situating 60meter away from the land. This Unique Building design has been worked out to represent an iconic structure in Kerala. The project is composed with a High-speed rail station, a Metro-rail Station, Commercial Spaces, Recreational and Cultural Areas in different levels, within a single roof. Design was made with a technical preference which tackles all climatic facts. Floating Hub Structure as a fluid shape to tackle the wind with shaggy effect for the building. As the building itself is proposed in the sea which stand itself by the concrete pillars. hollow cubes placed all over the foundation of the building, once the waves enter, it circulate itself and return back with no effect for the building. The total building is covered with M.S steel trusses with the galvanized glasses. The building structure has got its dimensions as 970cm width X 2070cm Depth X 400cm height. split-ted in floor levels. Ground floor act as parking , First floor as entrance for the public ( transit counters , Retail outlets etc.) ,Second floor as Metro rail plat form , Third floor as High speed rail platform. It is the first submerged hub as of now in Kerala. Like a big pebble stretching out from the land into the sea and extends horizontally 60m away from the land. This Unique Building design has been worked out to represent an iconic structure in Kerala.
