“even a diamond needs to be faceted and polished to bring out its true worth and beauty”
The architecture of the campus invites people to a visual and spatial experience. Allowing them to see the workshops in progress and have interactive discussions at various levels, it contributes to a healthy learning environment. The Hunar Foundation is planned in a way that provides breathing spaces in the form of small courts, shaded by traditionally rope-woven overhead screens and trees.
The larger workshops are within the existing shell, while the corporate offices have been designed using cargo containers fabricated at site. These containers are strategically placed around an existing tree, with a staircase wrapped around it.
The project won the ADA Award 2018-2019 .
