A Dramatic, energetic Brand Identity designed as an abstract, representative of India’s transmission grid.
The design offers an iconic and energetic "brand" for the REC World Headquarters and aesthetic, social, environmental and cultural well being for its users. The radiant façade consists of abstract east/west sun screens representative of India’s transmission grid. These two screens (100 m x 17 m) shade the east/west facades and are made of lightweight rectangular aluminum structural sections. Representing India’s power grid, the screens are environmental art shading the building -- a modern interpretation of the traditional intricately carved stone screens.
The REC design integrates renewable energy technologies throughout the building and landscape including a green roof. At the top of the atrium, a translucent thin-film PV array provides filtered daylight and collects solar energy for building use, lowering demand.
