Architecture: SAHRDC by Anagram Architects: “..office building for the ‘south asian human right documentation centre’, or SAHRDC, a non-governmental rights organization..positioned upon a busy street corner with pedestrian hustle and bustle, the small 50 square meter plot required a way to block the intrusive acoustical and visual problems along with direct solar gain also occurs along the 10 meter side of the plot..these considerations led to a fortification from the street with a masonry wall which lightens its overall mass by integrating a pattern of penetrations. the screen features a cubic module of rotated bricks which has been repeated, allowing ventilation and daylight to pass through while producing the imagery of south asian brise-soleils. the arrangement is comprised of 6 brick components with the standard dimensions used in india: 230mm x 115mm x 75mm. horizontal interlocking from the stacked overlapping reinforces the structure along with a thin concrete beam within the cavity from the absence of a brick..”  Outstanding masonry.  Seismic stability?
