This project has been designed as a pioneering Institute for Space, Science & Technology situated in most difficult terrain between steep valleys and ridges in a dense forest. The architecture while expressing contemporary character seeks to draw inspiration from the rich traditional architectural context of the region. The sloping roofs are designed innovatively to symbolize flight and buildings are designed to take full advantage of the topography. A great value has been put on the connectivity between the residential and academic campus, ensuring that all the facilities are accessible by by-cycle and pedestrians. The design is environment friendly maximizing the use of cross ventilation and minimizing the use of glass and air conditioners. The campus houses a large central library, convention centre, administrative buildings as well as the various academic institutions, as well as recreational facilities for this prestigious institution.
