TECHNIQUE TO FIGHT HEAT IN NEW DELHI
This installation aims at simplifying and reinterpreting the concept of air conditioning, understanding the fact that the introduction of air conditioners is not a universally applicable solution to eradicate heat as it’s costly as well as the environment may face a huge amount of degradation due to global warming. The team at Ant Studio is focusing to use computational technologies to reinterpret traditional evaporative cooling techniques to build a prototype of cylindrical clay cones, each of them is customized with specific design and size.
Description from the architects-
The most provocative time period of India is summers especially at a workplace that has a proximity to operate a generator system. It is believed that the employees lose their enthusiasm and productivity as excessive heat can degrade the health and well being of the employees as well as the level of motivation to perform their jobs is believed to decrease. Deki Electronics faced the same problem; however, the introduction of large and expensive air conditioning is not a solution. The need is to introduce an eco-friendly, energy efficient and robust solution.
