SIDE SURROUNDING OF THE
BUILDING
NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF FASHION TECHNOLOGY, NEW DELHI
Building is aligned with its long sides
along NW and SE axis, facilitating
good exposure to the sun and breeze.
Different blocks of building complex are
placed according to the site lines. All
the peripheral building lines are parallel
to the site lines.
Openings for light and ventilation have
been sacrificed for aesthetic
considerations than climatic comfort.
Windows in the academic block have
been provided towards NW and SE
resulting in glare and heat in the day.
STRUCTURE
This complex is based on frame
structure - square module has been
followed up.
The 7.88mts. Grid of square hollow
columns (serving as ducts) works as a
vertical plenum for future air
conditioning and evaporative cooling
systems.
The roofing is done with waffle slabs
(1.7mx1.7m) thus providing a column
free space of 6.85 sq., this sub-division
used is a basic module for all the
components of the building.
The external thickness of 990mm (3-
2) Acts as adequate sun protection for
the Windows, providing insulation.

SITE PLANNING
The site was a flat land and the
levels are all architects creation
which has charged overall site
contours.
There is a proper segregation
of functions as building blocks
are places in certain set of zones
which is determined by the
function character of the building
block.
The planning revolves around
the two courts- the sunken
cover with a stepped kund and
the amphitheatre. Although
apart from the zonal green there
is not any substantial green area
to be landscaped, the institute
gives a feeling of richly
landscaped environment.
Two types of circulation
pedestrian and vehicular.
An inner road leads to the main
car park just outside the main
entrance. This is where the
vehicular traffic ends.
The pedestrian movement within
the campus gives a nice lively
feel to the institute.
The entry to the campus is from
two sides. Front and back. As
one enters to the left is security
cabin and front is a green patch
and the internal road leads to the
main entrance and basement.

BUILDING LAYOUT
The irregular lines of the plot
bind the irregularly growing
blocks. Different blocks acquire
different shapes and forms
depending upon the functions
they are accommodating.
Permeability of the blocks, due
to accessibility from all the sides
makes the site totally traversed.
The building blocks are
concentrated around the sunken
court thus generating activity and
creating lively environment
The front court separated from
amphitheatre by terraced academic wing
becomes culturally appr. and
