The design challege offered a site with dense vegetaion with a humble institution existing in torn down state. The vegetation would set the institution aloof, inspite of its proximity to the highway. My design approach catered to maintaining the existing footprint of the building and also, allowing the construction of the new building happening simultaneously with the working of the institution. Maintaining the existing footprint allows me to have large amount of unused site, which is very crucial for future expansion in case of institutional buildings. The design approach very well caters to the cost, recycle of material, time of project and future expansion which critical pointers for an institution. My design approach also involves students in the construction process not as workers but an aid to the workers, this will ingrain a sense if belongingness and nostalgia to the students, along with learning.
