cept ahmedabad is a very good
example for the blend of nature and architecture
in such a highly functional environment.
Hence creating a unique ambiance.
Recessed windows provide protection from the hot sun while angled windows assure that maximum light reaches the interiors.
the stepped section of the building helps in the
smooth and effective air flow in the hot ahmedabad climate.
the contours make the site very level oriented and one can see the utilization of landform in the design.
the studios are connected through the staircase
but the faculty rooms are placed far away from the studio which is a disadvantage.
similarly the library interconnection is far away hence can't be easily made out.
but the indoor spaces are highly flexible,
suiting to the need of the hour.
corridors used as exhibition space
the openings provide glare free sunlight.
huge doors of the studios which
over look the open space.
