KNOW THE PAST / CHALLENGE THE PRESENT / CREATE THE FUTURE DESIGN AND INNOVATİON ACADEMY, AHMADABAD-INDIA
‘Interstitial Academy’ responds to the Pols of the traditional city of Amdavad, which are the informal street patterns that allow activities within, with interstitial spaces concept; i.e., the proximity of solids, non-figural spaces, or in-between spaces. Reinterpretation of pols and chowks as interstitial space offers more interactive education in the context. I proposed an open circulation to the Academy at the ground level, which blurs indoor and outdoor. I aimed to create a flow among the continuous voids that break volumes and to have a plurality of masses with spatial variety. Thus, rather than a single volume, I tried to co-exist multiple layers of space configurations.
