Building and Infrastructure The Classrooms flanked with courtyards connected to corridors are a few among the many spaces which create an ambience for focused and collaborative learning. Both of these aspects play a very vital role in design. Amidst the green landscape and water body nests the Amphitheatre which acts both as a node for all the high energy gatherings and also to demarcate active and passive zones. A sports complex including a swimming pool next to the football fields which in turn is surrounded by Hostel rooms on either side become the active zone while the learning zone on the other side becomes the passive one. A large dining hall adjacent to the water body doubles up as a multifunctional space. The smell of salty air, the rustling of leaves, the music of wind chimes, the chatter of kids, the feel of the hard stone versus the softness of grass, the rhythmic movement of water and the sight of installations placed across the campus, emphasizing the five elements of nature enhance one’s schooling experience and propel the children to dream big. Hence the Landscaping forms strong link connecting built and unbuilt. The hostel module accommodating 6-students with a common social space is designed to make them feel like a family. Clusters of 24 students are planned around a courtyard with a caretaker’s unit attached. This happens at different levels along a pedestrian spine, visually connecting different clusters, fostering interaction across. An attempt is made to create a feeling of a homely ambience. building and infrastructure
