IIT-Jodhpur Campus Master Plan, Rajasthan

A sustainable oasis in a challenging desert context. This unique master plan conceptualizes the working of all parts of the campus as an interlocking, integral network of the complex dynamic systems, like the metabolism of a living organism. This meta-system shall be actively studied and monitored using an advanced ICT network, partly to generate intelligent control instructions that increase efficiency and partly to mine data, and in that sense is a settlement evolving through trials and tests, a "Living Laboratory". The ideas for this "Smart Intelligent Eco-campus" encompass the ideals of social, economic and environmental sustainability, and integrate aspects of landscape and biodiversity, food, water and waste, solid waste, mobility, energy and ICT to create an intricate life-like system of campus metabolism
