  • 4. Acharya Campus- Distinct & Different Student-centric campus Acharya is a campus that is a learning home for over 8000 students of its eleven institutions. It is a mini township by itself, spread across 120 acres of land in the outskirts of Bangalore. Located just a few minutes drive away from top-notch corporates, it rests atop a raised scenic spot, surrounded by gentle and gradient landforms. The design of the campus is very student centric, predominantly pedestrian with vehicular traffic secluded from the learning zones. The Academic, Residential, Student Activity and Landscaped Zones of the campus are interestingly isolated and integrated with one another. Solid and Void The architecture reflects cheerfulness inside-out with refreshing colour schemes, shapes, forms, levels and spaces. The concept of solid and void permeates every constructed area bringing with it the feel of academic seriousness and intellectual freedom. The design emphasis is on breaking the monotony with interlocked walls, open spaces, nooks, corridors, courtyards that encourage one-to-one contact and lively interaction .

  • 6. Unity of purpose in Design Diversity Each of the dozen buildings in the campus are unique in itself. If on the one hand, you have the Initiation Block that exudes the comfort of a traditional home with tiled roof and centre courtyard of landscaped garden, on the other extreme, you find the 500-seat Seminar Hall that’s completely modern, highly techno-savvy and futuristic in style, design and furniture, with a aqueduct running over the roof. The 10,000+ seating stadium is truly Olympic size that’s the centre-stage for extra-curricular activity. The snugly food court is both inviting and invigorating, offering an eating-out experience in the open landscaped area. Encouraging academics, Love for nature The class rooms are large, airy and well lit, tucked away from noise. The Student Activity Centre, in contrast is compact, cheerful and engaging. The laboratories are designed to enable explorative activity, ensure hygiene and prevent accident hazards. The campus is completely wired with Wi-Fi enablement. The concern for environment is innate to the design. Vast forestation, rain water harvest, a man-made 4-acre lake with water treatment plant, use of alternative energy sources, ban on use of environment harming substances reflect this concern. In the short time that the campus has come up in, it has been awe-inspiring for both national and international visitors ACHARYA’S NRV SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE (ASArch)
  • 7. ASArch is one of the few architecture Schools to have adopted from the inception the 2010 Imperative in the curriculum & facilities and committed to implement the 2030 Challenge. (For details, visit http://architecture2030.org ) A e-Newsletter by the name ‘ASArch Footsteps’ was started with the initiative of students and the inaugural issue released during the Acharya Habba 2010.This will share all the trials & tribulations students undergo in the beginning of their professional journey . Adopters, Supporters, Collaborators - The 2010 Imperative & 2030 Challenge http://www.architecture2030.org/2010_imperative/2010PresChanDeanadoptions.php http://www.architecture2030.org/2030_challenge/2030busadoptions.php   ACHARYA’S NRV SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE (ASArch)

  • 13. <ul><li>Architecting the Future Overview: “Revolution by design and invention is the only </li></ul><ul><li>revolution tolerable to all men, all societies, and </li></ul><ul><li>all political systems anywhere.” </li></ul><ul><li>R. Buckminster Fuller, 1965 In 1961 Buckminster Fuller issued a challenge </li></ul><ul><li>to architects, architectural schools, and architecture </li></ul><ul><li>students around the world to address the world’s </li></ul><ul><li>most pressing problems within a ten-year time frame. He posited that it was possible within a decade, given then available resources, technology, and know-how to double the efficiency of the world’s life-support systems to sustain all of humanity by launching a ’comprehensive anticipatory design science revolution’. He called this initiative the World Design Science Decade . Very simply, Comprehensive Anticipatory Design Science (CADS) is an approach to solving complex problems by paying attention to the big picture, recognizing synergies, and harnessing the principles of nature in order to “make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone,” as Fuller put it. </li></ul>ACHARYA’S NRV SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE (ASArch)
  • 14. The Theme ‘Footprints’ for the Acharya Habba 2010 held on April 9 & 10 April was proposed by ASArch. On this occasion of rejoice and celebrations, various activities happened to create campus social responsibility among all stakeholders of Acharya community towards reducing our ecological footprints. Events to mark the festival include cultural & sport competitions, Quizzes, skits/ street plays, posters/banners, statues etc. A platform to create awareness on relevant issues can be accessed at http://acharyafootprints.ning.com ACHARYA’S NRV SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE (ASArch)

  • 19. The “Footprints” theme will have a strong message and at the end of the campaign, expected to have a cascading effect on the campus community. Theme is easily related to each & every stakeholder, discipline & Institution. There can be varied connotations: <ul><li>Simplistic view of growth of the Acharya campus tracing to the footprints on a timeline. </li></ul><ul><li>Growth of the campus over physical space- land & buildings , new programmes. </li></ul><ul><li>Impact of the growth on natural resources, be it water that is consumed, energy to operate the facilities including the impacts on various aspects of flora & fauna. </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at broader aspects of ecological footprints- land, water, energy, materials etc and also highlighting various eco-friendly initiatives that are already in place, being planned out and future potentials keeping in view the present imperatives & future challenges. </li></ul><ul><li>Special focus: Overall reduction of footprints: water, energy, wastes(including biodegradable, paper, plastics, electronic etc )from all sources within the campus. </li></ul><ul><li>Popularize and find applications for recycling wastes, renewable energy sources, reduction of vehicular emissions and develop Campus Social Responsibility (CSR) . </li></ul>ACHARYA’S NRV SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE (ASArch)
  • 20. Objectives/Deliverables: <ul><li>To make everyone in the campus aware of the growth curve of the Acharya Institutes and future initiatives, at the same time responding to issues at global, regional, urban & local levels. </li></ul><ul><li>To popularize broad-based concepts of environment management and making each stakeholder to realize roles & responsibilities </li></ul><ul><li>Each institution will formulate a course of action to create awareness amongst the teaching & student fraternity. This would be as related to their own discipline & curriculum. For example, while common areas of interest may be water/energy/waste management etc, there can be specific reference to the disciplines as Engineering-industrial activities & their footprints; Pharmacy & Nursing- Pharmaceuticals, biomedical wastes etc,; Architecture-urban environment and footprints from construction sector; etc. </li></ul><ul><li>The central strategy for campaigning with well detailed objectives and expected fallouts will be devised for all institutions and assistance sought, if any, will be extended to each of the Acharya Institutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Various methods that will be tried out are - street plays/skits, quizzes, inviting novel ideas/suggestions related to the theme, Posters/ Banners, Audio-visuals etc. </li></ul><ul><li>The Theme with logo/mascot or any other merchandize (T-Shirt, memento, takeaways etc) will prominently figure during all activities related to Acharya Habba including stage decoration, banners, murals/sculptures that will convey, propagate and spread awareness about the Theme in all sections of the campus community. </li></ul>ACHARYA’S NRV SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE (ASArch)
