On September 27th National Geographic released a special Super Structure documentary about our Atmosphere project in Kolkata. What propelled the Atmosphere, a development by Rahul Sarafled Forum Projects into the elite list is not the scale of the twin towers but the 100metre wide, four level club deck that straddles them at a height of 100 metre above the ground.
The massive 2,350tonne cloud shaped steel structure (known as the 'Deya') is inspired by clouds. When it is finally completed, the deck is expected to weigh 7,500 tonne. Designed by architects Peng Beng and Belinda Huang of Arc Studio, the structural design was done by Web Structures.
"For a residential structure to be called a Superstructure is truly saying a lot about its grandeur and magnificence. The Atmosphere is a new architectural icon in India and a great complement to our Superstructure series," said Fox International AVP Karan Tandon.
There has been much interest in the project with two of Web Structures' Youtube videos reaching over 40k views. Below is the documentary in full -
