Mirambika Institute, New Delhi
The building was conceived as a place to hold an innovative program of education, research, training, and scholarship. Mirambika is a 'free progress' school where the stress is on child-centric value-oriented education. There is a very light curriculum that is customized to each child, no strong subject divides, no mainstream examination or testing – instead, there is continuous and ongoing feedback and evaluation.
The spaces were designed to be organic, amorphous, and such that the boundary between inside space and outside space would vanish. This reflected the spirit of the organization – breaking of all barriers, actualizing the self and achieving excellence through consulting the inner consciousness.
