PROJECTS:

PROJECTS ALLIANCE FRANCAISE, AHMEDABAD (1973-1976) CDSA, PUNE (1986-1989,1999-2000) MAHINDRA UNITED WORLD COLLEGE, MAHARASHTRA (1997-2000) SAMUNDRA INSTITUTE, LONAVALA(2004-2007) SUZLON ONE EARTH, PUNE (2006-2009) CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER

ALLIANCE FRANCAISE (1973-1976):

ALLIANCE FRANCAISE (1973-1976) 1.DIRECTOR ROOM 2.LIBRARY 3.EXHIBITION SPACE 4.ENTRANCE 1 2 3 4 Bold sculptural intensions found in Benninger's initial work, as well as his strong concern for context. Classic modernist style is adopted The use of a strict square grid pattern characterizes this structure which also fuses the structure with existing campus plan By use of informal courtyard. Structure is R.C.C. framed and brick construction CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER

CDSA, PUNE (1986-1989):

CDSA, PUNE (1986-1989) CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER Design is based on play and juxta -position of parallel walls. Stone is used as material and hip roofs face the strong westerly monsoon winds at 45 degree slopes. The open patterns of parallel walls draw in exterior spaces, integrating the structures with the landscape.

M.United World College(1997-2000):

M.United World College(1997-2000) Made of local stone and exposed concrete, with gently sloping masonry surfaces, terracotta tiles roofs and square cut-outs in the walls for windows. Inspired from Saynatsalo building of Aalto. Centred the plans of this highly diverse little world around a quadrangle with passages radiating out from it Just as traditional villages of the area are divided into clusters or wadis , so are the five faculty cottages with sequence of gardens, passages, stepped platforms, atria and orchards showing harmonious integration of the built form into the natural topography. CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER

PowerPoint Presentation:

North facing studio windows provide light and views in the art center. Academic quadrangle reflecting the gigantic mountains at the backdrop. Pathways creating hierarchy in the building structure in the academic area. The administrative building reflects the architectural language of the campus. CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER

Samundra Institute, Lonavala (2004-2007):

Samundra Institute, Lonavala (2004-2007) The campus includes a Science Centre, a Nautical Workshop, an Academic Complex, a Catering Centre, Auditorium, Administration Centre, etc for 480 participants. “Ship-in-campus” is a unique real life full scale engine room, deck and cabins, complete with all navigation and engineering equipment. Steel and glass materials create a maritime ambiance. The landscape is considered like a green carpet of ocean, rolling gently between the structures. Individual buildings are treated as sculptural objects floating within this garden sea. All buildings have natural illumination, cutting consumption of non-renewable energy. Solar panels provide the entire heated water requirement, using circular hot water tanks held above the circular stairs CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER

PowerPoint Presentation:

The administrative building reflects the architectural language of the campus as cleverly exploits northern light through its wavy glass atrium wall, while generating electricity through the grand photovoltaic south-facing façade Photovoltaic panels façade allow natural light and make it energy efficient. Hostel building is designed with concept of ship as vertical stair moor like ship mooring in a port. Aluminum louvers keep the bright sun off of the fenestration and the three Dining Halls are glass prisms facing north, with protective cladded concrete walls to the South and West. CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER

INFERENCES:

INFERENCES CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BENNINGER The design is simple, symmetrical but strong expression of form, shapes with modernist style inspired from Buckminster Fuller. Integration of landscape and structure is found as he is inspired from works of Frank lloyd wright . Later works emphasis over sustainability of structure with use of solar panels, north light, louvers, sloping roofs etc. Style of using material with modernism concept make his projects unique and different from others in India.
