This special section covers an out-of-the-box design with steel as an essential element of the design. The main aim of this section is to showcase how steel can be innovatively used in today’s world of architecture.

Here’s Ar Sudiksha Parekh, Principal Architect, Imprint Architects, unveils their out-of-the-box design concept, that ought to turn the tables in the future…

Imprints is a company set up by an architect who has realized the need to bridge the gap between common man’s aspirations to creativity and the gap between contractors and clients. Here is the Architect solving this with yet another innovatively designed structure.

Steel’s invention has provided architects, engineers, and designers a competitive advantage in creating unique, organic, and complex structures. Steel technology advancements have proven to be beneficial to both designers and clients. Steel allows for time saving, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions.

The Pearl Resort’s design is based on a pearl nestled quietly in an enclosed seashell, periodically disturbed by the waves crashing on the shoreline. Similarly, the pearl resort was created with the traditional, ornately decorated haveli in mind, as well as the pearl in a seashell. The pearl resort sits on a waterbody with a shining steel beam construction that resembles a shell. Steel, due of its versatility, is chosen for the shell’s design.

The task at hand was to design a seven-star resort along a body of water. The minute aspects of a haveli, such as jalis and jharokha, have been included. The upper shell-like steel structure adds to the resort’s elegance while also identifying the resort’s overall concept.
