Abstract:
Abstract The success of architecture is directly connected to its flexibility. People use their homes and workplaces in their own individual way. “Altering your environment to your own requirements is a common characteristic of transforming a building from an anonymous space into a specific place”. The German philosopher Martin Heidegger The flexibility is an important concept in the design of housing, particularly for the economical weaker sections and lower income groups of populations, as most of the of people that live in multistory apartments find difficult to accommodate their families because of the fixed space available in the apartments in mega cities of India. The problem lies in the severe shortage of land at affordable prices to the group for building individual houses and forced to choose the available shelter options not designed suiting to their requirements. During the day time, most of the living space is required for the daily activities but at night this space can be designed for sleeping. Similarly, the furniture which is not used 24 hours, if folded, a lot of space can be created. The research findings reveal that there are gaps in terms of lack of flexibility and multifunctional living spaces, design and construction of modular units for multistory apartments suiting to the requirements of the people and the flexibility concept has not been attempted for such segments of population in India. Human beings are flexible individuals who are mobile, creative, and capable of operating in a wide range of environments as in the past one who can change himself as per the conditions will only survive. This paper uniquely analyzes how the flexible architecture comes out to be a solution for prevailing problems in different countries and explores the characteristics of flexible architecture to open building principles and examines the effect that such design can have within the different levels in the built environment. Keywords: Adaptive reuse, Low Cost, Sustainable, Flexibility, Innovation, Multifunctional.
