Entry Title: Euro School @ Bannerghatta, Bengaluru
Brand: Vijay Gupta Architects
Client: Euro School Foundation
Description: The design for Euro School Bannerghatta, Bengaluru breaks the conventional approach to schools by creating an organic built morphology that weaves in the natural with the manmade, the built with the unbuilt. Set in the immediate context of the lush Bannerghatta National Park, the conceptual idea behind the school was to create an environment for children to move around freely, explore and interact with each other and most importantly their natural surroundings. To achieve this, the design uses the vegetation on-site to its advantage.
All the trees and the natural swale on site have been retained and incorporated into the built environment, with trees becoming the focal points within the school’s organic building profile. The design explores the immense potential institutional architecture has for cultivating an understanding of and respect for nature in children by encouraging learning with and around nature, thus inculcating sustainable values from an early age.
