Bridge connects the workshops on the 2nd floor, is a view point and an advertising board during events,
Breaking the Corner
Modules on 2nd floor accomadate functions such as workshops and toilets, these can be converted to gallery spaces. Louver Device to Shade.
Modules on 1st floor accomadate gallery spaces that overlook modules above and below.
Modules are interlocked to give varying volumes between corridor and modules itself.
Planter box to allow filtered light.
Plinth emphasizes the north-south movement across the street.

Temperature, Humidity & Precipitation.
Summer temperatures reach upto 48o, with the onset of monsoon, the temperatures decrease. The climate becomes cool in December.
Nagpur recieves an annual rainfall of 1100 -1200, majority of the precipitation takes place in July and August.
The soil available is hard and granular. A very thin blanket of silty soil is present in the sloping area towards the boundary. Topsoil is granular upto 2 to 3m followed by hard basalt rock, high bearing capacity.
MASTERPLAN IDEATION. Water creator of all beings. Has been the root cause of vegetation on land and the shade from the vegetation has lead one to be comfortable environment which we refer to as a microclimate and ecological zone. To understanding sustainablity, it to be sensitive to the environment. Consuming the least and producing as less residue as possible. At the masterplan level, to create microclimate through minimal interference on the side to enhance the existing vegetative growth through all seasons. First step is towards sustenance is of creating water basins (collector) and swales (pathway) and create evergreen vegetation along these paths and basins. The strategies of creating ecological zones traveses through the vast scale of the site to the different building typologies and the unbuilt inbetween.
PRINCIPLES TO PLANNING AND DESIGN
Shadow Analysis - Masterplan
Wind Analysis - Masterplan
Splitting the mass to allow the humidified air through the spaces. Stagger to cut dry dusty summer winds.
The Academic Block is equidistant from the housing and the hostel blocks, where as the circulation is diagonal through the landscape.
Porosity on the North West portion of the academic to redude wind shadows.
North West Wind - summer
The public buildings are placed at ends of the masterplan, which overlook waterbodies.
Checker Board pattern to break the wind and allow the winds to funnel through.
HOSTEL BLOCKS Blocks allow west wind to pass. Only the humidified air is allowed ti the common in between spaces.
Water Management Stategies Catchment Area = 98.4 acres Average Annual Rainfall = 1200mm Runoff Coefficient = 0.1 Effective Volume of Catchment Water = 47,866cum Water Requirements: Per day = 99,150 / 1,00,000 lts Annually = 3,65,00,000 lts / 3,650 cum
South West Wind - monsoon
Water Requirement Table
MASTERPLAN The campus is accessed fron the north west. The public road runs along the northern site boundary. This is a pedestrian friendly campus and vehicular access is terminated at the parking zones. Vegetation on site is planned along the swales that carry water to the reservoirs. The pedestrian arc is approximately 300m long from one end to the other. This arc is shaded through the day and renders a landscape character to the place. This arc is a social space with stepped water bodies and amphitheatres.
