Cybertecture Egg

The Cybertecture Egg by the firm James Law Cybertecture is built around the concept of creating architecture using the intangible materials of technology, multimedia, intelligence and interactivity.  The Egg derives its shape from the Earth, with a desire to serve as a sustainable nucleus for the surrounding Bandra Kurla Complex.

Its unique form allows for large, column-free floors, and reduces approximately 15% of the construction material that is used in a typical rectangular structure.  The Cybertecture Egg is embedded with solar panels and topped with sky gardens, harvests rainwater, treats its own sewage, cools its water using an underground reservoir, and has a façade glazed according to its orientation to the sun.  All of that is topped off with an intelligent building management system that allows less energy to be utilized in spaces that are not immediately occupied.
