DESIGN CONCEPTS

The Form
The organization is in theform of clusters grouped together
considering their degree of formality and participation.
The enclosed areas are grouped around the sunkencourtyards and
sits on varied plinths respecting the site contours and terraces
above.
Thebuilding is organized on regularformal squaremodules.The,
organization follows the gradual slope ofthe site and the functions
are interlocked by joining the different levels

Eachpart ofthe building is distinct, yet flows easily into one another
limb meandering paths. The approachto the artscentrefrom main
road on the North-West Side,being on ahigher levelfromthe site,
hell wholesite to be viewed without any disturbance. It gives a vista
to the lakepanoramicview ofthe city. The long steps lead down to
the internal courtyards fromthe entrance. Themovement through
different activities opens up on terraces and encounters nature. The
movementis based on shifting of the axes through the different
levels within the building.

Scale and Proportion


Scale &Proportion ofthebuilding are very human in nature.
The creation of simplecalm spaces is done by using
appropriate scales, proportions& sensitive treatment to the
walls.
Entrance to the courtyard is made just by
extending a horizontal band across two built
masses, whichgives a sense of entering.
The individual squaremodule is repeatedforms a larger
institutional scale.
The size of courtyard and thebuiltmass around are
proportional and provide comfortable spaces.
Nature of Spaces
The plan generates two different kind of spaces: open - to sky and enclosed.
Spaces are calmin nature.
Themovement leads to the lake through activities where
space penetrates into eachother and has a visual
transparency fromwithin&outside.
The plazacreatedby the different terraces is very publicin
nature.
Thefunctions spatially linked to thecourtyards, inner volume
