Louis Kahn once said, “A great building must begin with the immeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed, and in the end must be unmeasured.” And what great opportunity to understand architecture in the area of education where I believe these thoughts converge. Today I have Bijoy Ramachandran with us on Audiogyan. Bijoy Ramachandran & Sunitha Kondur are co-founders of Hundredhands. It is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Bangalore. Their work draws on a keen sense of the urban context by probing questions of scale, character, spatial and visual impact, and the remaking of the public domain. A hundred hands have designed a lot of public and educational institutions. Nalanda University in Bihar, Bangalore International center, Neev Academy, St. Andrews School & CMR University in Bangalore.. to name a few. We will try and understand thoughts while designing or architecting educational institutions with Bijoy today.
