Bangalore International Convention Centre designed by Yazdani Studio of Cannon Design
Inspired by the nature of silk weaving, a traditional industry in Bangalore, a discernable architectural ground plane weaves both built and landscaped elements into a rich tapestry of spaces and experiences. This ground plane comprised of entrance plazas, event terraces, landscaped courtyards and gardens, is the platform upon which the array of events and spectacles of the International Convention Centre will reveal themselves. It is the connective tissue that unites the hotel with the centre, the entrance plaza to events within the buildings, the banquet hall to terraces and the garden beyond.
The architectural concept, also based upon the ideas of layering and weaving, places the large open elements of the convention centre atop one another. This approach allows for the most generous assignment of open space and landscaped areas on the site. The interplay of open and enclosed spaces at multiple levels creates a rich experiential fabric, maximizing the use of daylight along perimeter areas, and offering the kind of breathing space required in concept with busy programmed areas. Interwoven within these spaces is a dynamic structural expression that gives the Centre its special international signature.
The two hotels rise as distinctive counterpoints to the horizontal flow of the convention centre. A series of moveable balcony screens provide a varied composition at each floor. Openings reveal the courtyards within and visually connect the interior landscape with the multi-level gardens. Its path across and through the site creates the potential for a richly choreographed sequence of experiences for the International Convention Centre in Bangalore.

A daily mundane activity of crumpling paper waste and disposing, became the seed for inspiration in this individualistic façade design. The corten steel ornamental façade is an integration of organically formed creases and a meticulous rice paper cutting method. An engaging take on this façade is its forms, analogous to unwrapping a crumpled piece of […]
