Dr. Bhimrao Ambedker University, housing study, Lucknow, India (circa 1985)
This project series documents a housing study for Dr. Bhimrao Ambedker University in Lucknow, India around 1985. This project consisted of multi-storey buildings arranged in clusters. The buildings had three apartments on each floor and were joined to create common courtyards. Diamond shaped buildings with centre courtyards were also investigated for a different area of the campus, as well as a nursery school, shopping complex, administrative block and information tower. The architect also made recommendations to build facilities near the campus for recycling, waste water, vegetables and livestock, stating that doing so would avoid the natural occurrence of slums that served a similar purpose.
The project is recorded through original drawings of site, floor and landscaping plans, as well as elevations and photographic negatives of the project model, likely dating from around 1985.
Materials in this project series were arranged by material type.
