The project aim was to create an architecture that would be a socio cultural setting for fostering cross pollination of ideologies in young minds. The notion of the street being an urban space and the community being the caretaker of it has been used to align all movement along one narrow street with the individual blocks facing into this primary circulation spine. A series of interaction spaces in the form of voids spiral up the form, creating in a way, a vertical urbanscape. The IILM student housing is a project where the architecture and spatial character of the built form plays a key role in developing the socio-cultural ethos of this student community.
