My Thesis : National Institute of Design - Extension Campus

Project: Extension Campus for NID at GandhinagarSite Area: 15 Acre (60,000 sqm)

Post Independence alterations in India had become quite an integral part of Quality Control in the early 60’s. Though not Self a conscious effort, there was a relentless search to develop a design aesthetic in the newly independent India which had to survive a competitive world. This itself become a very obvious and a last case intention to chose NID which represented a tangential attitude for ‘Western Modern’ aspiring for a balanced change & continuity towards a more brighter future for days to come. Primarily, this case threw up several clues both programmatically and experimentally (where, anyhow i would be biased towards architecture). Eventually it turned up to express the aspirations of a dominant group (NID) in a society (Gandhinagar), to be avant garde & at the same time redefine the bygone traditions (within the avant garde frame). Specifically speaking the attempt comes across at formalizing the future with new images of past & present.


Opening the Box:A Person entering NID has his/ her own set of Pre Conceived thoughts, here he learns and gets the acceptance...Acceptance of thoughts, Ideas & Vision.Setting free from “The Impossible”New dimension of thoughtsUrge is to break through the rigid frame of thinking...LIKE
“OPENING THE BOX”
