“Forest” is the wining entry for an invited competition design for a school project sited in Pune, India. The winning design (by NudeOffices) explores the relation between nature and pedagogy in dense urban settlements built on the foundations of “Grow”, “Learn”, “Reuse”, “Plant” and “Play”. Sited in Pune approximately 3 hours by road from Mumbai, the city has witnessed dramatic urban growth in the last decade.
The project harbours two “green” cylindrical volumes stitched by a rooftop “infinity” loop track. Each cylindrical volume represents the stage of phased construction with planned programmatic activities. The project explores the dynamics and logistics of a vibrant space for student-centric interaction and learning. The “Green” skin can be serviced and maintained by a peripheral service track that is accessible from both landing and mid-landing levels on every floor by horticulturists.
