A Psychrometric Analysis for Shimla District was conducted using weather data provided by the metrological department. A detailed climatic report was also prepared studying the prevailing wind direction and sunpath for a 12month cycle. Keeping these considerations in mind, the building was designed to have the benefits of both passive heating and passive cooling using the ‘Trombe Wall’ for the summer and winter months. The final form was influenced from the wingspan of birds which is supported at the centre of its body. This resulted in a vaulted structural configuration leaving the classroom area free of psychrometric graph & climate chart columns intruding with the movement of students. The end of the cantilever - vaulted wings are supported with columns and the difference in roof level between classrooms and laboratories provide diffused natural light and ventilation.
