Thapar University Learning Laboratory Awarded Architecture MasterPrize

We are delighted that the Thapar University Learning Laboratory has been awarded an Architecture MasterPrize for Educational Buildings.

The Learning Laboratory creates a geography for education, combining social and sustainable strategies in a communal, expansive setting. Comprising a library, lecture theatres and science faculty, in tall red Agra stone volumes with white marble detail, the facades use louvred stone screens like traditional Jaali screens. A podium structure runs between, giant ramps at either end, a natural extension of the pedestrian route. Below, students congregate around fountains in the cool shade. A contemporary concept founded on a sense of place, sensible to the traditions of Indian architecture.
