Andheri Station is already considered as the HUB for transportation due to the several linkages it provides, and its strategic position. Since the metro is an elevated system, it is imperative to have designs that merge into the city fabric. These massive structures need to be treated as positive interventions.
The structure is a rational response to a series of programmatic requirements and constraints. The result is a steel-and-glass canopy. The stunning oculus form creates a new structure that is functional, contemporary, and contextual; a new grand civic space for the city of Mumbai.
The aperture sizes are dependent on its adjacency with the neighboring buildings. If a residential building typology is next to the side facade then the apertures are smaller, whereas if it is facing a road then the apertures are of the biggest size. This parametric intervention helped create a mesmerising pattern on the facade of the station.
Our design process seeks to bridge the gap between material properties, contextual parameters, and digital techniques.
