JMI Team Wins ‘Design Her Future’ Contest

India Tomorrow

NEW DELHI—Jamia Millia Islamia’s students of the Faculty of Architecture and Ekistics, bagged the ‘gold badge’ in the recently held “Design Her Future” challenge, a national level design competition organized by Hindware and NASA (National Association of Students of Architecture).

The challenge was to design a low-cost girl’s toilet. Design were judged on criteria of cost-effective, innovative, modular, sustainable, washroom design that can serve as a protype for schools across India.

Their design will be implemented across the country by Hindware. They will also get the opportunity to work with professionals in the industry during the implementation.

The team consisted of four students from third year (B.Arch) named Abhishek Dhar, Abhimanyu Madaan, Farhan Kashif Jeelani and Murtaza Ameer.

Their design proposal included ‘self-sustainable sanitary system’ which they labelled as ‘S4 Sauchalaya’.

The team came up with a simple yet innovative design technique such as use of straw bale, bamboo planks, recycled earthen pot washbasin, reclaimed wood etc. as a construction material which helped them to reduce the cost. 

The design is based on the concept of adaptive architecture i.e., each and every element of the structure can be interchanged with other products on the basis of availability and the budget of the project, making it a more adaptable design.
