About House in Forest 2017

The aim of the competition was to promote ideas of protecting the forest and its environment. It also encouraged the creation of new living style for houses, pavilions, structures, or landscape. LPU students’ design artistry ‘the Harmonious Niche’ won First Prize of $500 and Winners’ Certificate. Hung Nguyen Architects of Hanoi (Vietnam) won the second prize for their design ‘Mangrove Housing: New Barriers’ and Southwest Jiaotong University (Chengdu) and China won the third prize for designing ‘Heart of Mangrove Forest’.

Explaining all about the winning design, Shreyansh of Ujjain and Divyansh of Ludhiana said: “Our design ‘Harmonious Niche’ is wholly influenced by nature and is designed for nature. Keeping in mind the visibility of all three aspects of nature-air, water and land from the building, the design is in harmony with the context of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. This design has the form of a ‘bud’ for an originating flower.”

The winning design

Technologically illustrating, Hitesh and Abhishek, who hail from Saharanpur & Shahjahan Pur, shared: “This 18-meter tall & 5-storey design is to provide a better vision of surroundings, to catch more of natural light and to allow heat penetration through glass façade. There is a continuous wooden spiral staircase from bottom to top; usage of sound absorbing local material bamboo; floor created underwater to get the enchanting views of aquatic life; and, above all, the different portions of the building are to provide a mesmerizing 360-degree view of the whole Andaman Nicobar Islands.”

Congratulating the winners, LPU Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal shared: “We are glad to note that our students participated, and presented their design to be noticed, discussed and awarded by a wider audience. In addition, we are not only proud of our hard-working creative students but also appreciative of the top mentoring quality of their teachers, who keep on inspiring students to reach global daises to prove their inner ability. This is the supreme example of winning where LPU students, under the more than 1-month continuous guidance of their teachers, proved their worth to win the world. In fact, all departments at LPU keep on finding better and innovative opportunities for the students so that they learn the things practically, basically and theoretically, in unison, to be always original, exemplary and aloof.”
