Nature in its various forms has always been a constant source of inspiration to man. The sky with its various states and ever changing colors is one of the most dynamic elements of nature and is what has inspired the built form façade. The colored laminate with Vanceva PVB glass on the façade follows no repetitive pattern and is symbolic of the unpredictable nature of the sky. It also represents the vibrancy of today’s youth.

The client brief required a management institute of international standards. Provisions for state of the art facilities and smart classrooms have been made for. The latest technological provisions in the institute allow for worldwide exchange of knowledge, through conventions and seminars. The architectural language of the built form is a representation of this. The colored façade gives it a unique identity and is the first of its kind to be built in .

The site was a huge constraint and dictated linear planning. Special efforts were made to ensure create non-monotonous spaces which did not follow expected linear pattern. Circulations spaces and spill out zones have been created along the curved glass façade giving them a more interesting and dynamic feel. Emphasis was given to interaction points not just for students but also for the faculty encouraging exchange of knowledge and ideas at all levels.

An integrated plaza with a water body has been designed. The water body receives no direct sunlight and creates a comfortable micro-climate. Wherever possible shading trees have been planted on the hard landscape and soft landscape has been introduced.

It is an institute that has achieved international standards not only by providing state of art facilities but also by having an architectural expression which represents that.
