Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi (circa 1985-2000)
This project series documents the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) in India, likely around 1985-2000. The project was probably for the main campus, located in New Delhi. The project proposed a complete campus made up of round structures and roadways. The roads and buildings were proposed as one and the same, as both the roads and parking would make up the roofs of the buildings. This, it was said, would maximize the campus's space and separate cars from pedestrians. The project also proposed the design of energy efficient and sustainable infrastructure and processes for the campus. The drawings highlight the creation of waste management facilities, a biogas plant, sewage systems, an animal husbandry block, vegetable farming, efficient furniture and windmills mounted on the laboratories.
The project is recorded through drawings, which are mostly reprographic copies, textual records and slides, likely dating from around 1985-2000. The drawings consist of a campus diagram, area survey plans, elevations, a section and details, while the textual records consist of a project proposal report. The slides show presentation plans and the project model.
Materials in this project series were arranged by material type.
