The design inspiration for the campus is taken from the structure of a shoe and it’s physical manifestation guides the form development of the built habitat. A strong contextual response is formed by integrating passive design features along with respecting the challenging topography of the site with a goal of minimal intervention by the built on to the land. The sole of the shoe translates into ground functions, the outsole signifies the tough exterior, the shank translates into connection bridges and library section in following the essence of a shoe structure. Shoe perforations translate into openings in the building and components like stiffener, toe cap, toe puff etc. into the structural elements. In this manner, high performance shoe technology features translates into ventilation, form, support etc., in turn forming energy efficient building features like day lighting, flexible openings etc. The design aims to achieve a LEED Silver rating.
