RH21 is architecture of fluidity frozen in space. RH21 becomes an expression of poetics and politics expected of architecture of a house. It is a spatiality versus availability, a physicality versus spirituality, a fluidity in rigidity, an uncertainty in complexity overall a varying presence in motion, in feeling, in the triangle of Kandinsky; the triangle is moving slowly yet steadily.
As crystalline forms under pressure from whence one seeks, so is RH21, sculpting itself under the posited pressure-that which has created an architecture of perspective in postures dramatically presenting itself in the uncompromisingly packed neighbourhood.
Every twist every turn every panel with its sun gives the architecture a quality similar to a crystalline formation, or a ship to sail steered with able hands. A turn that is in motion of a dynamic presence, a structured presence. Unparalleled, obstructed but-[un], twisted in turn, crystalline to its move, movement in this moor.
The architecture is slowly reacting to the physical quantities around, there by forming itself, realising itself, and accepting itself. Just a glacier landforms are distinctive, walled, recessional, striations- RH21 has also carved itself distinctively, walled itself in, lateral recessional in presence, seemingly erratic with its striations. RH21 has a Glacial quality to it. Slow, steady and steadfast.
From a state of forgotten lands and farther lands the site was developed with an understanding of possible conflicts of SPACE around. The architectonics reacted to not just the requirements sprung from the cultural need of the client but also the contextual need shifting, forcing and moving each plane, room, volume and, line away-toward-upward-inward and so on creating a reactionary architecture of its own.
A SCREEN as a plane is to protect, and create a contrast to the grey of the walls and volumes. To bring in both light and air into a closely packed and fortressed exterior devoid of any openings directly on the surfaces was compensated with multilevel- staggered courtyards and a large planar parametric screen. It becomes a deliberation in the social constructs through the architectural tectonic- a plane. The EXISTING CONSTRUCTS have dictated the proposed openings not on the vertical surfaces but on the horizontal ones bringing in a continuation expected between an expected separations of families of one singular name as a unit.
