PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia CONCEPTS Raje’s work exhibits integrity between purpose and expression, building and landscape, part and whole, and the ultimate quality of all good architecture through time – a sense of repose His works had an excellent understanding of the elements of building, and the laws of construct, that give it the sense of ordered presence Yet it is an order enriched by the patina of materials he chooses and his sensitivity of light. His works had indeed a softness and quality of transcendence

PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia The project restates time tested premises of the court and garden, fundamental to most Islamic architecture in India. The natural vegetation is wild grass, which has been allowed to grow, augmented by rows and clumps of trees. The rooms, arcade and porch, are made from a simple vocabulary of trabeated and arcuated construction, with the walls clad with stone screed in shades of green and yellow grey that establishes a close rapport with the site.

PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia Built in concrete, the building’s interiors interact with the exteriors through a medium of concrete arched skin that seems to wrap around, standing lightly along the periphery giving the overall building a certain lightness of form.

PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia INDIAN INSTITUTE OF FOREST MANAGEMENT (BHOPAL) The magnificence of the clear sky is brilliantly framed through the circular rings supported on the arches, as carefully and precisely as one would stack cards

PowerPoint Presentation:

PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia Instead of concrete being rendered into a monolith, the façade displays a variety of textures in concrete and stone . The internal corridors, larger than small number of users tend to hold the building together formally, tying down its ends and making way for the spaces such as the landscaped courtyards to breathe out towards the open INDIAN INSTITUTE OF FOREST MANAGEMENT (BHOPAL)

PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia Looking at the main building that sits atop the landscaped surroundings, one might sense a similarity of form with the IIMA building thanks to the arches and courtyards INDIAN INSTITUTE OF FOREST MANAGEMENT (BHOPAL)

PRESENTATION ON LIFE & WORKS OF ANANT RAJE by Ar. Nishita Kedia Though, one might even feel that not enough justice has been done to Raje’s own ideas of innovation, when one sees mere modifications to certain formal elements so as to fit in perfectly well in the larger picture, and not many innovative approaches to tackle issues related to light and ventilation within. However the building, seems to be truly ahead of its time and completely in compliance with Raje’s philosophy of architecture which aimed at simplicity and honesty.
