  5. 5. Geometries of ConnectionThe geometric specificity of our sites provides powerful cues - for connecting new buildings to the existing fabric - for developing new range of social interaction - for investing new places with particularity and memorabilityGeometric connections in urban settings have developed as a result of clear design intention, and theshaping of built form by patterns of use over time Bibliothèque Multimédia à Vocation Régionale in Caen
  6. 6. Choreography of Community- Place that invites kinesthetic experience of space heighten one’s involvement with both the place and inhabitants.- The interface between the building and inhabitant can vary from loose to tight, allowing range of social and spatial experiences- A choreographically rich place can balance both clarity and memorability of a place with the multiplicity of experience in space and time Three archetypical elements part of the circulation  A street: connects to the city of campus with informal life  A plaza: connects to social opportunity  A stairway: to focus point [ Street ] [ Plaza ] [ Stairway ] NIFT – Gandhinagar and Mumbai
  7. 7. Light and the Land The changing states of light, climate and vegetation can become active participants in creating dynamicarchitectural and social space. Community spaces must relate to the environment IIM< Ahmedabad NID, Ahmedabad
  8. 8. Placement and Identity- Individual building within the scheme must have a sense of identity and ownership For example, landmark building could have a dominating view by its placement with respect to other buildings- Must follow a spatial diagram and composition- Built must be establish in place and time For example, building language.
