|Organization:||S.K.Das Associated Architects|
|Project:||Biju Patnaik University, Rourkela,India|
|My Role:||Planning, Urban Design, Architecture, Construction drawing, Report Editing|
The new university campus in Rourkela spans an area of almost 140acres. The project involved designing the master plan and individual buildings in three phases. The master plan was developed in collaboration with Boston Design Collaborative and Abdel- Halim CDC.
We identified four key components of design in the project:
– Community and context,
– Strategy for physical planning,
– Architectural design principles,
– Environmental Optimization
A book was designed and edited by us describing the process of planning and the development of the project. Our team comprised of planners, urban designers, architects and landscape architects, who collaborated to design the master plan of the project and develop architectural guidelines for individual buildings.
Later we each took up individual buildings and designed their architectural details and even produced construction drawing for the same. I had the pleasure of designing the Library building for the project.
