VISION OF A.P.I.E.D.

As the site was surrounded by various hostels, it was decided to close off the school from the outside, and create an open space or courtyard within the building complex, towards which all activities would occur. The corridors were sunk so that studio areas could maintain their privacy, and at the same time have an unobstructed view of the courtyard. The corridor walls were concieved as exhibition areas for students’ works, and the corridors themselves as an intimate space for staff and student interaction. The courtyard is linked to the open exhibition cum activity hall.
The exterior construction of the building is of earthwork up to a 2.4m level, which merges harmoniously with the landscape, and also provides insulation.
