CEPT School of Architecture Extension
[This project was developed during my collaboration with Balkrishna Doshi at Vastu Shilpa in Ahmedabad, India]
CEPT University's School of Architecture, part of Ahmedabad city’s social, historical and architectural legacy, required an extension after 50 years of its inception by renowned indian architect Balkrishna Doshi.
This proposal claims for the reinterpretation of an existing vocabulary, adapted to changing context and new technologies, along the transmission of concepts and ideals through the built form.
The design follows the organic character of the Campus, creating plazas and places to meet, allowing the informal learning to occur, and using different scales, heights, rythms, materials and light treatment.
