He included spaces for casual interaction while achieving a balance between modernity and tradition that captured the spirit of timeless India. The broad airy corridors, the amphitheater like classrooms and transition spaces in the complex enhance interaction among the faculty, students and visitors. His design was given shape by a team of architects from the National Institute of Design.
