FROM BALKRISHNA DOSHI:
Inspired by traditional maze-like Indian cities and temples, IIM Bangalore is organized as interlocking buildings, courts and galleries. It also provides a variety of spaces protected from the hot climate, and infuses greenery through semi-open corridors and gardens.
"The integration of functions, movements, nature and the choices to accommodate diverse activities simultaneously are the distinguishing features of the campus at Bangalore today."
“I wanted to develop a system by which the buildings at IIM Bangalore disappear and spaces in between them dominate the experience of the place…I thought the most important things [were] the rasa, which is the subtle experience of the space that makes the space memorable. It extends the associations and enriches imagination.”
