  6. 6. Conclusion: Our recent visit to the tvs academy has helped us in getting a practical knowledge of how schools are actually built and their different planning strategies and stages. It helped us realize that it is important to give more unbuilt spaces and utilize the area for landscaping and for outdoor activities. This school also shows the different methods of landscaping and how to utilize space efficiently. The different classroom layouts for different grades was also arranged in according to the respective standards. one main disadvantage of this school was the placements of the blocks. Each individual block was isolated to prevent disturbance but due to this the distance between each block increased and led to greater walking space. 6 Layout plan
