ting a promenade for students and enhancing interaction. The amphi-theatre is enveloped with skylight establishing a visual dialogue within the indoor and outdoor.
The interactive spaces extend vertically in the void in the form of the library jutting out like a floating cuboid and forming an entrance canopy. The terrace sits above the library and is physically connected through ramps and visually connected through skylights and an abstract mural wall.
In ancient india, it was believed that true learning begins with nature, the concept of Gurukul where students imbibe knowledge while living with the guru. Vinaya (education and discipline) is an ideal framework mixing the functions (lecture hall, administration, Hostel and multi-purpose hall) with the sanghas (interactive spaces) giving the vibe of Forest around it.
The abstract mural brings in the essence of the ancient times into a quadruple void creating an interactive space. The mural is inspired from the trees in a forest indicating the connection of the inside with the outside green space and at the same time the feeling of being amidst the nature
