Status: Under Construction

Size: 8,25,000 sq ft | 142 acres

The client brief was simply ‘to create the World’s most sustainable office building’. Morphogenesis took this opportunity to test if a development of this scale could be net-zero on water, energy and waste to landfill, with a future aim to develop a model for sustainable master-planning for larger sites. The plan evolved from the notion of understanding the capacity of the site, determined by functions like energy, water, geology of the land, along with essential rules of urban design pertaining to light, ventilation, and shading. The use of passive strategies though the project aids in reducing energy requirements to one fifth of the consumption of a typical office. The introduction of an earth sheltered, shaded and passively cooled landscape at a subterranean level integrates the different building blocks with the subterranean pedestrian circulation system. This is flanked with food courts and other public activities. These low-lying congregation spaces are shaded by the buildings on top and are thermally buffered by the surrounding land. This results in a large amount of public space being independent of mechanical cooling systems. Infosys sets out to establish new context in ‘the middle of nowhere’ for future projects in Mihan and act as an iconic precursor for the area to be developed as a global hub of Information Technology.
