Designing of ‘P. P. Savani’ Engineering College was a competition project floated by P. P. Savani Trust. The College is designed in response to site’s natural context. Besides the existing school setup, the college is so close to the river with interesting site section which is itself a solution for the concept of the building. The linear building is broken down into different departments connected by bridges and/or staircases and caters easiest vehicular and pedestrian circulation for every visitor. The Interplay of solid and voids between the blocks and departments define the architectural identity of the college as well as creates interactive spaces. Our aim is to design something visually and aesthetically interesting that the students and staff can enjoy and feel inspired by. The campus has aspired to be a holistic learning environment showing a strong, individual identity of the College.
