Architect Nuru Karim, founding director of LIVE (Laboratory for Interactive Visionary Environments), shared with us his project Hinduja Hospital S2, located in Mumbai, India. More images and architect’s description after the break.

The project a 22 storey hospital ancillary services building in the heart of Mumbai City, explores the topological transformation of a ‘mesh skin’ wrapped across the vertical tubular core. The relationship of the Mesh with material properties of light, form, technology and pattern were explored.

The development of the spatial system maintained a strong emphasis on the regulation of light transmission and was designed to manipulate direct radiation. The constant internal transformation of the shadow patterns channeled through the mesh directed within the internal open plan organization, echoes the element of ‘time’ and ‘life’ within the doctrines of the building type programmatic.
