The design brief was to create a new Urban Development on the Outskirts of the City-An Urban spread that allows for infinite possibility and flexibility yet defines the Academic Settlement. The Development is envisaged as a dense urban collage derived from its local climatic conditions. The planning process is a derivative of the definition of three main zones- Public Zone (Academic), Semi Public and Private Zone (Residential) and an overlay of these is a key Design determinant. The master plan aims to create a mini urban settlement which generates a sustainable Socio-Cultural Built environment similar to that of a City. Various morphologies were tested to achieve an optimum sense of balance of built and open space, suited to the space requirements. It is proposed to create a Sustainable Eco-Friendly campus, with spaces that respond to local Climatic conditions. This would also facilitate interaction and the creation of a Synergy between disciplines and departments. Vehicular movement is restricted along the peripheral network, while the internal primary, secondary, and tertiary streets are for pedestrian movement. This network of streets would encourage walking and cycling within the campus. The shaded walkways and narrow streets are articulated by exploring the nature of traditional streets to create a pedestrian-friendly environment.
