The fish building in Hyderabad, India.
The concept behind the building simply resembled the fish shape as the building meant to serve as the
national fishers’ building. Also on another story, the building was supposed to be inspired the monumental fish located in Barcelona-Spain, which has been
designed by Frank Gehry in 1992.
The building was received a number of criticism due to its simple architectural form that literally copying the shape of the fish and paste it onto the site as a building. With no
intention or whatsoever to make any effort to at least abstract the shape of the fish or break it down into simple elements and mediate the fish shape to re-form it later on as a building.
Regardless of its failure in the aesthetics terms- the architect has also failed in terms of the Design’s functionality by locating the main floor on the first floor level. This means that the reception is located on the first floor and the main visitors will need to walk 20 steps on the stair to reach their destination! If the visitors’ age were above 60, in this case the building might be one of the reasons that will increase the heart attack for older people! And of course there is no need to mention the people with the special need or disability they
probably were not meant to enter this building by any means!
Shortly, if this building was representing the national fishers’ building no wonder how the sewers department would look like!!
