World Nature Conservation Day – Now turn your pencils into plants give back to the nature with recycled paper pencils – Vick Rana Group Chairman Red Ridge Global

World Nature Conservation Day – Now turn your pencils into plants  give back to the nature with recycled paper pencils – Vick Rana Group Chairman  Red Ridge Global

Have you ever thought of turning old, used tiny stubs of pencils into a plant? You might not have heard about this, but one would definitely start loving this concept once used to recycled pencils.

Every year we cut down about 8 million trees to make around 2 billion pencils. In such times, sustainable pencils are saviours to the environment.

A viable solution

Sustainable pencils are pencils that are not made of wood but are rolled from recyclable paper. Eco-friendly in nature, these pencils are plantable. They have water soluble capsules which have seeds of herbs and vegetables, making the pencils plantable and balancing the carbon imprint. With no trace of wood, old paper that goes to waste is recycled and rolled into pencils.

On an average, one kid uses 3-4 pencils a month. Multiply the number by the number of children, sketchers we have in the country and we have tons of wooden stubs of pencils dumped at landfills. And to create more, millions of trees are felled and the circle continues. While we all are grappling with the climate crisis, felling more trees and poorly managing wastes is not at all an option, all for the sake of a pencil. Therefore, recycled pencils become the best solution and the perfect alternative for wooden pencils. A child opting for eco-friendly pencils by buying recycled, plantable ones is giving back to nature and contributing to saving the environment. Not just this, but it is also a tiny way to reduce one’s carbon imprint and avoid unnecessary damage to nature.

But why recycled pencils?

Recycled pencils are the need of the hour and it is heartening to see several young brands coming forward to address the issue and offer a variety for children to choose from the green alternatives. What is even more exciting is that these pencils turn out to be much better in quality and long-lasting than their wooden counterparts. The nib does not break easily and the paper-rolling process makes it very sturdy for a good grip in comparison to wooden ones. Mostly, such pencils are all extra dark graphite nibs, enabling children to unleash their power of creativity. As we all know, children love to use varieties of pencils. And pencils with a surprise of seeds is a delight among kids of all ages. Pencils are also widely used for drawing and sketching purposes.

Pencils enlighten early learning as well as creative skills among infants. But when you use the widely available, conventional wooden pencils available across the country, you are not being a responsible citizen and acting to save the environment around you. It is a known fact that wooden pencil manufacturing leads to deforestation on a massive scale, adding up to the environmental crisis.

However, when we introduce children to such alternative options, we are not only inspiring them to use their imaginations and creativity to play with the innovative products, but also instill the right values of caring for the environment and make them the green citizens of tomorrow who would be mindful about using resources as they grow up.

The curiosity of a child’s mind will be eager to try out these new kinds of alternative pencils that will eventually reunite and take them closer to nature. Once that happens, there is no looking back for the child; they will gradually start understanding the needing for living life in a sustainable way. Just like charity, sustainability too begins at home.

Using eco-friendly products while we battle several environmental issues, making children adapt green practices will be an inspiration for children and adults alike to appreciate, admire and value nature, and further contribute towards making our planet a better place to live.

Brookfield Properties creating a work destination, inspired by history and designed for the future

Tower 11 at Candor TechSpace, Sector 135, Noida product feature and a Walkthrough Video 

National, 1st July 2021: Workspaces constitute 70% of a working individual’s day and subsequently is directly related to their well-being. Therefore, we must rethink and redefine our design ideologies that shape the workspaces of tomorrow. Incorporating local architectural language into buildings has fostered a sense of belonging, enhanced comfort in the built environment and encouraged community building. As most organisations strive to create landmark architecture, this has made it essential for global institutions and organisations to contextualise the built environment as they develop campuses worldwide. For instance, the recent Taj Mahal inspired office built by Microsoft in Noida has set the precedence for this very ideology.

As most workforces now prepare themselves to return to the office, Noida’s biggest and finest workspace, Candor TechSpace Sector 135, will soon have a new addition to its expansive campus that creates a distinctive landmark. “Candor TechSpace’s Tower 11 brings workspaces that abide by international standards while celebrating, utilising and contemporising historical and architectural design knowledge. Tower 11 will create a work destination that blurs the line between a workspace and a place of wellbeing and community with enhanced productivity and creativity,” shares Alok Aggarwal, Managing Director and CEO, Brookfield Properties. The design for tower 11 draws spatial understanding and syntax from local architecture and embedded space making techniques from multiple monuments such as the India Gate and the Taj Mahal to create a contemporary and future-ready office building. The new addition will offer workspaces that revolutionise and redefine how we perceive our work environments.

Contemporising materiality that is rooted in tradition.

An amalgamation of brass and black mirror details to exuberate regality and monumentality.

Tower 11 is an amalgamation of symbolic as well as physical derivations of regional architecture that are contemporised for functional efficiency and maximum performance. For instance, the form of the building is inspired by the volumetric characteristics of the India Gate. The two-building volumes have been articulated as two distinct elements united by a core and a striking façade in the central axis. The facade recreates a contemporary adaptation of the triumphant arch of the India Gate, that embraces with regality and through its form recreates the opulent yet welcoming aesthetic. On the one hand, detailed in dark glass panels and brass, the facade with its regal tonality recreates a sturdiness like the carved stones of India Gate as the rays of the sun reflect off it. On the other hand, the high-performance facade maximises pleasant daylight ingress with minimal heat gain and glare control to create comfortable indoor environments.

Though the tower acts as a climax to the axial Candor campus, it also marks the entry into an elegant yet opulent built environment. Inspired by the Taj Mahal’s ethos, the entrance lobby is a three-storied volume, with white marble walls that offer monumentality and grandeur to every visitor. Well-Designed and optimised, expansive floor plates with minimised space wastage create seamless, functional, and efficient spaces. The frequent use of marble to create textured walls along with recessed light fitting details make the interiors a contemporary manifestation of the Taj Mahal, while creating a clean and spotless interior finish.

The building design focuses on crafting experiences and maximum efficiency, with expansive green landscapes, a workspace that creates an experience like no other. Describing the same, architect Ricardo Bofill, Principal Chief Architect for Tower 11, shares, “Orientation through the building is always straightforward with no dark corners, no notches and no wasted corridors. The office space is well lit naturally, with great views. The ground floor is a mix of marble lobbies in elegant white shades and overlooks a black mirror reflective water feature, with a lush garden all around. This creates a freshly-ventilated interior space with a perspective towards the campus, providing a place-making experience rarely seen before in an office building.”

Building Monumentality.

The black mirror water body at the heart of the campus and the very entrance of Tower 11 creates a serene and soothing campus ethos.

We wanted to imbibe the quality of placemaking that historical public buildings offer, and therefore, the campus planning draws inspiration and learning from ancient planning techniques of the iconic Taj Mahal”, shares Alok Aggarwal, Managing Director and CEO, Brookfield Properties. Amalgamating tradition with modernity, with Tower 11 as the central focus, the axial planning adds monumentality and regality. The black glass reflection water body located in the foreground surrounded by lush greens modernises the ancient planning and cooling techniques while employing placemaking tools to generate a stimulating environment. The focus on linearity in shared spaces creates a sense of cohesive continuity with segregated vehicular and pedestrian circulation to define public areas. The water body also becomes the central pause point, cushioned by the surrounding landscape, and housed within the pedestrian thoroughfare.

The campus is equipped with amenities, ranging from curated retail, fitness centres, food courts and food outlets, coffee shops, banking facilities, creche facilities, all of which are distributed within the 30,000 sq. ft. amenities block. The design focus for the public areas is not to landscape or hardscape, but people-scape to curate experiences that stimulate and excite the end-user. “Under the shadows of the frangipani trees and transported by the fragrance of tropical flowers, we are hoping to create a new place, a new destination for each end-user to write his or her own story”, shares Ricardo. The ecology focuses on pedestrian mobility, the air, and the sounds that create a built environment that can inspire the end-user and open the mind to a depth of experiences.

The campus offering   4.5 M Sf of leasable area is designed with modern sensibilities to remain committed to the health and environment of the building occupants and the communities within which it operates, generating a larger positive impact. Drawing from most historical architecture that is environment-friendly, the campus is ecologically conscious with new-age technology and historical planning techniques to create a microclimate. With distributed green landscapes, waste management systems, water management and recycling, energy efficiency, reduced use of fossil fuels, health and well-being of its occupants and more, the building has been awarded a Platinum rating by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). To ensure that the best quality environments are provided to the users, the campus also incorporates air purifiers, mainly electrostatic filters with EC fans for purified air quality, that provide ideal AQI levels to all inhabitants.

A power-packed Workspace solution

The Candor TechSpace campus offers an unparalleled connectivity advantage as it is directly connected to the metro station as well as flaunts direct access to the 12 lanes signal free expressway. Subsequently, the campus is well connected to the Noida CBD, Ghaziabad as well as East Delhi. To foster a holistic living experience, the campus is located within an integrated township with proximity to residential and social infrastructure.

Tower 11 at the Candor TechSpace, Sector 135 is a workspace solution that keeps the users and inhabitants as the highest priority through design. It is an integrated workspace destination that amalgamates innovation with historical design knowledge to create a building that is a notch above its contemporaries. “Through Tower 11, we reimagined how workspaces are conceived and can push the limits of design to achieve a better work-life balance and experience, better infrastructure, better healthcare, better sustainability initiatives, better wellbeing initiatives for our occupants and subsequently a campus beyond the workplace. We aim to create a work destination,” shares Alok Aggarwal, Managing Director and CEO, Brookfield Properties.
