Location: Tezpur, Assam, India

Project Work Status: Unbuilt Projects

Project Completed: Sep-2011

The project restructures the site by yielding a simple rectangular podium that will serve as the base over which the different buildings of the junior school will rest.

Common facilities are displayed across this podium in the form of 5 bars, North-South orientated, Developed in the form of Simple linear " Pavilion style" elements that interlock the project with the surrounding landscape. These bars not only articulate the site, but also, serve as control elements and sequential filers as the main circulation through the site has to go through them, intensifying their importance, and thus social activities of the school.

The more restrictive program is clinched in place, following the podium's geometry and incorporating small scale modular repetitive units such as the classrooms or the dormitories. Following the master plan strategy, the west end is dedicated to the school and the east side to the residential facilities.

A series of patios and courtyards punctuate the podium breaking down even more the scale of the intervention and introducing a new level in the filtering sequence, as they generate more private but still semi open areas that configure the outdoor shared space.
