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.
