Madhya Pradesh Electricity Board Office Complex

Jabalpur, India

Year: 1979


Over the years, the architect observed the constant need for growth of offices or institutions - different departments with different requirements need proximity and hence vertical additions are most desirable.

The basic form of octogon allows openings for light and view, along with connectivity in chosen directions. When expanded, additions of spaces are more efficient connected to one department. Hence, modular construction gives unity as well as diversity to the complex as if to a living organism.
