The idea is to create a space for young enthusiasts of science and art to come together and to highlight the core values of the science gallery - CONNECT, PARTICIPATE & SURPRISE through the design.

The campus is treated as an urban intervention that would translate the idea of science and art to every person walking inside the premise. The site has a bus stop located at one end; to encourage more visitors into the complex, a paved path is created within which diagonally connects one end of the site to the bus stop.

The overall design expresses nature in its vivid forms while the built structure takes a back seat. The massing allows the eye to move through the spaces, framing light and greenery in every pocket. The open spaces covered with tensile fabric allow natural light and ventilation, enhancing micro-climatic comfort thus making the spaces usable throughout the day.

One could say that the building is a poetry carved from earth with each space sculpted intricately, flowing along the natural slope.
