Bhopal, not unlike Delhi, is a historic city, but primarily serves as an administrative centre. The program is made up by first, housing and second, the institution. Our design, taking inspiration from the city of Bhopal itself, attempts to marry the its two distinct morphologies with the two-part program - the housing is pedestrian, grounded with an organic street character and activated ground space, together creating a sense of community within, while the institution is contrived, constructed as a  stand-alone object set in a landscape. Bhopal, not unlike Delhi, is a historic city, but primarily serves as an administrative centre.

The placement of blocks on site was dictated by its terrain and trees. The city of Bhopal is home to many man-made lakes that are part of its well-developed traditional water systems, designed for water supply and storage as well as microclimate cooling and beauty. We, too, developed a water body in the natural craters and valleys of the site that divides the site into two zones, one for each component of the program. 

Combined with other solar passive applications, the sustainability agenda is well-rounded in this design- landscape and architectural detailing included.
