MetadataShow full item record
With globalization and competition the importance of education is increasing daily. Hence the student migration is increasing a lot not just nationally but internationally too. There are students who travel from one place to anotherâ ¦.one country to anotherâ ¦.one culture to anotherâ ¦.It is so important to provide a place where they can come together, communicate with each other and share their social and cultural values. At the same time creating spaces that provides a sense of safety and privacy has become important. The site was located in the hustle and bustle of the city, which itself challenging in terms of maintaining a quite and calm atmosphere. In my thesis I tried to achieve all the above parameters by providing "Courtyard Planning" that is based on ancient archaic notion of "Vastu Purush Mandala"- A matrix of nine planets. A large courtyard at the center also reveals a series of "hidden" secondary courtyard spaces, one after another, as one walks through the complex. These horizontal and vertical spaces give rise to more interaction and communication in order to bridge a cultural gap between students.
