We are releasing this belated edition of Campus Feature to celebrate the colors of the Kite Festival in Gujarat.
The space frame over the Samvad area, the center of the academic area of the campus, is designed to act as a central congregation space. In addition to creating an aspirational motif, it also draws inspiration from the tradition in Gujarat of flying kites during Uttarayan (Makar Sankranti). The pattern forming a roof-like structure is an interpretation of kites of different colors spanning the sky on the Uttaryan day, a traditional festive bonanza of Gujarat. It also provides shade and complete air ventilation in the peak of summers!!
