In this issue of the DFI News, we are delighted to present the ‘Institutional buildings’ vertical, highlighting selected projects that DFI has been involved with. The studio has designed Institutional buildings that are exemplary in terms of safety, durability, energy efficiency, environmental and thermal performance, as well as aesthetics. In terms of design thought and process, we lay great importance to the form of the structure, the absolute functional requirements of Institutional buildings, while endowing the structure with an identity and character that integrates landscape with functionality and aesthetics.
Project Feature | National Institute of Technology, Delhi
The NIT campus, sited on over 2 lakh sq. m of site area, situated on the outskirts of Delhi is regarded as the first ’vehicle-free campus’ built on the principals of sustainability and design innovation. Being designed as the ’Future of India’, the campus aspires to generate an environment that will summon the spirit of innovation, technology and invention through its built volume, hence inspiring the students. Campuses within the city are typically congested owing to small sites; therefore, the prime objective was to create a compact, vehicle-free campus, one which allowed walking from one building to another, yet enable openness that was devoid of clutter and congestion. The planning is derived conceptually from the intent of zoning and building segregation, and is essentially divided into 4 Units that include the Administration block, Academic Block, Cultural Block / convention centre and the residential complex with each zone imbibing its own social fabric.
