Selected Entries for Stage 2

The Indo-Swiss BEEP project was thrilled at the response from all participants and the effort put in creating these designs. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank you for your creations.

Evaluation of the designs was done by the Jury in a two day process organized in New Delhi. Each entry was discussed in detail and evaluated for the defined evaluation criteria.

The Jury for Stage 1 of the competition comprised of:

  1. Mr Ashok B. Lall, Principal, Ashok B. Lall Architects

  2. Pierre Jaboyedoff, Head, PMTU, Indo-Swiss BEEP

  3. Prof Praveen Nahar, Senior Faculty of Industrial Design, NID

The evaluation criteria, as elaborated in the design brief were:

  1. Operating Mechanism

  2. Overall design and aesthetics

  3. Category Wise:

    1. For residential: Controllability of shading and managing SHGC

    2. For commercial: Controllability of shading and day-lighting for managing SHGC and VLT

The result of the Stage 1 of the competition is:

Category: Residential

A total of 15 entries were received in the Residential category. The jury has selected six entries for the second stage of the competition.

The selected entries are:

Note

The team leaders of the selected entries will be communicated the follow up steps for Stage 2 over email.

If any of the participant teams are interested in knowing brief overview of the Jury’s thoughts on their design, send a mail at Pallav@gkspl.in with the Category and Design Name in the subject. We will communicate the thoughts of the Jury, but will not entertain any further questions or arguments.

Overview


Who is Organizing the Design Competition

The Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP) is a bilateral cooperation project between the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the Ministry of Power, Government of India. The overall objective of the project is to reduce energy consumption in new buildings in India. The specific objective is to build capacities and knowledge of builders, architects, engineers, labs, institutions and others, in the area of building energy efficiency in India by utilising/adapting Swiss experience and expertise, and by following a multi-stakeholders cooperation process. The project is of 5 years duration (2012-16) and has four components:

  • Component 1: Integrated Design Charrettes
  • Component 2: Technical assistance in developing building material testing infrastructure
  • Component 3: Developing Guidelines, Labels and Tools for Residential and Public Buildings
  • Component 4: Knowledge Management

One of the objectives of the BEEP project is to promote innovative energy efficiency technologies in India. External Movable Shading Systems are installed on the façade of the building and help control the solar heat gain while also providing natural daylight indoors. BEEP has identified External Movable Shading Systems as one of the innovative technologies which is useful for dynamic protection of the buildings from excessive solar gains. 

Significance of External Movable Shading Systems for India

Geographically most of India falls in these three climatic zone: hot & dry, composite, and warm & humid. There has been a proliferation of glazed buildings across the country, which are insensitive to orientation and are not well shaded. In these buildings, solar heat gain through glass constitutes a significant portion of the cooling load. External Movable Shading Systems is one of the solutions which reduces solar heat ingress inside the building and reduces the HVAC load.

Despite the potential, there are very few examples and applications of external movable shading systems in India. BEEP is organizing this design competition to promote innovative, indigenous concepts and solutions for external movable shading systems. Post the competition, BEEP will provide technical assistance to the designers to help them translate their design into final product.

Objectives of the Design Competition

BEEP envisions that the Design Competition will instigate participants to create innovative, India-specific designs and solutions. The project will then provide technical assistance to the winning designs in the form prototype development and testing to make them finished articles which can be launched in the market. As a long term benefit, BEEP feels that the design competition will promote this concept amongst architechts, product designers, HVAC engineers and others to use this concept in the buildings that they are associated with.
