What should a campus of a Tech Institute be like?
This is a very relevant question as we are about to embark on the construction of our campus.
We are clear from the start that ours will be a residential campus. Students and the faculty must reside on the campus. The proximity and the interaction adds tremendous value to the learning experience. It will be a 24x7 campus brimming with life round the clock.
We have decided to have somewhat tall structures. In Bhubaneswar, it is common to have 3 storied buildings. The BDA would frown upon tall structures. However, of late, tall structures have become more acceptable. Tall structures help preserve open space.
We wanted to create monument which will symbolize the spirit of the Institute in the same way as Eiffel Towers symbolizes Paris. This is still a thought in process.
