Aditya, What you need to do is to write down a list of all of the data you have and then review and list what data you are missing. In other words, first put down what you know and then work on what you do not know. :)))

if i were to hazard a guess, i would say that it's not the design elements that's bothering Aditya, but that she must have somehow taken onto herself the challenge of coming up with an 'original' thought. this, i suppose, happens especially that Aditya would probably by now have received so much design input, and so comes the burden of distilling these to a sensible and presentable piece of work.
there's no point in re-inventing the wheel, they say. but then again, there could be some wisdom derived even for just the mental exercise of doing so. Aditya, i would then suggest that you focus for a while on those buildings that already exist. have a survey of what you currently have over there; get a feel of the places and obtain input from the occupants themselves. you could possibly pick out good aspects which were not incorporated in the buildings, or those that are outdated and need upgrading, or even find elements that should not be there in the first place. from these, i believe you can set up valuable points that could form part of your presentation.
well...this is a college project....i worked mah as off doin a detailed survey...and have finally came up with a form for the design but still not satisfied with the final design output...wanna do better than this...guys!!!..anyone interested seeing the form and givin a detailed crit on it ,is most welcome..e'mail me to see the file(firstname.lastname@example.org).....i think i'm still beating around the bush...missing the real jist of the things...i really wanna make this design of mine the best...
are you thinking of a mall?
an office building?
a mixed-use facility?
have you come up with a profile of its prospective users/occupants?
it's an A grade building that we need to design...80% of the building constitutes of business centres and offices rest are retail shops and other commercial entities....since the site is at connaught place,which is the main hub for business in delhi(india)....and the site is next to one of the most important buildings of in that area (the statesman house)... i have done a detailed site anaysis ..if u want "magsi".... i can send it to you ..have done some analytical drawing on the same....neways the form i have come up with is on the basis of the surroundings...and the built fabric surrounding the site...but still not content with the form i want it to blend it with the buildings in the vicinty...since i'm new i have no knowledge of service cores and so loads of things to be worked out yet....anyone any gr8 IDEAS!!!!!!...
