Bill Truitt’s research and proposal for Mumbai’s SEEPZ business district recently won a TSA award:
This project knits the two existing buildings (City Hall and Former Supreme Court) and new construction together into a seamless flow of single-, double-, and triple-height spaces. Existing conditions of attenuation are articulated into new extended galleries
The new Roof gallery serves as a loop between the two buildings, with a translucent roof and walls screened by light fins and scrims. A mechanical plenum is inserted between the roof gallery and the existing building below.

This unbuilt scheme for a LEED Silver project brings an awareness of sustainable issues to the public by way of modeling space and structure, rather than selecting and purchasing approved ‘green’ products.
