Competition Brief:
Academy's Recess proposes the generation of architectural ideas for outdoor activities for the institution's amphitheatre area while retaining the original functionality of the space. Interaction and Activity in a natural environment is the key focus of the competition.
Narrative:
The amphitheatre is the most beloved spot for all the students to congregate on, be it whilst sipping on a steaming hot cup of coffee during mid lecture breaks or during the morning rush.
The proposition includes a seating platform springing from the central banyan tree, which is also the symbol of our college. It revolves around it, and further develops to form a pergola style roof and later a solid roof over the stationary shop. This depicts the journey of our college from a small college to one of the topmost institutions in the city.This pergola serves as a roof for the photobooth and creates a dramatic effect of light and shadow throughout the day.

The amphitheatre seating is enlarged inorder to accommodate a larger crowd since this place serves as a huge photo kiosk, during college festivals. It further extends to an open seating on one side and a secluded seating on the other. The amphitheatre is frequently filled with meandering cats in a quest for a shaded space. The wall adjacent to the niche is dedicated as a play and rest area for the same.
