Mandi, India Indian Institute of Technology

Project details

The campus layout responds to the microclimate and topography of the steep site in the part forested hills of Kamand in the western Himalayan region.

Phase I includes shared state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops in learning houses situated on various levels and connected via pedestrian bridges. A market square forms the heart of the campus and creates a place to encourage social interaction and celebration.

The faculty staff housing element forms a retreat on the higher levels at the campus ‘peninsula’. It is laid out in a village setting offering fantastic views. Proposed building typologies echo the traditional style of Himalayan a vernacular and strive toward a new architecture for the region.

The Institute's new campus will set a benchmark for developing innovative, contextual and environmentally sensitive building in the Himalayan region.
