Scope and Content

This project series documents a competition entry for an office block and residences called Electra Complex in Meerut, India around 1983. The competition entry proposed a mid-rise office block with decks wrapping the building's exterior, which would connect via ramp to the neighbouring residential block. Both building types would feature shops, walkways and parking at their ground level. The proposal also included the design of a children's park next to the residential complex.

This project is recorded through drawings, including a large number of reprographic copies, textual records and a photograph and negatives dating from around 1983. The drawings consist of plans, elevations, sections and perspectives, while the textual records consist of the project proposal report with the accompanying photo and drawings. The negatives are of the architects with presentation materials and reproduced drawings. It does not appear that this project was ever built.
