An Institutional Development that demonstrates sustainable ecological landscape development through the use of water management, ecological landscapes, use of natural and local materials, use of native biodiversity, etc, resulting in substantial savings in water use and maintenance.
The landscape system employs features for microclimate control, water management and risk mitigation, propagation of native biodiversity, integration of non-motorized mobility systems, etc. The proposal includes integration of built and open elements of the institutional campus with specific attention paid to the demands of the geography.
The varied nature of designed spaces help address the large spectrum of user groups (children aged 6-18) by accommodating recreational activities that are passive design in nature negating the use of concrete and other industrial materials. Each part of the designed landscape is also tailored to function as an educative space for natural sciences.
