An abode of peace
The architectural framework of Gitanjali Park has been influenced by Rabindranath Tagore’s Shantiniketan. The campus and internal spaces have been planned in keeping with the traditional Bengali courtyards. The design of the campus lends itself to the creation of open and green collaboration spaces for a confluence of people, as well as new ideas. Additionally, all the campus buildings are oriented to capture the ideal amount of sunlight.
The building’s contemporary facade is yet another distinctive feature. The northern facade is designed to give the illusion of moving with the observer, while the southern facade captures random forms into a rhythmic pattern in three dimensions.
