Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • Approximately 133 drawings (including 33 reprographic copies)
    0.03 l.m. of textual records
Scope and content:
This project series documents the Thapar Institute of Science and Technology (TIET) in Patiala, India from 1987-1999. The project consisted of the master plan for the campus and the design of several buildings, not all of which were realized. These buildings included the girls' hostel, the residence for the warden of the girls' hostel, the post-graduate hostel, the polytechnic, the Science and Technology Entrepreneur Park (STEP) administration block, the lecture hall complex and a residence for lecturers, among others. Infrastructure such as walls, gates and signage were also included.

The girls' hostel, post-graduate hostel, polytechnic and STEP administration block followed similar building layouts, each being square in shape with large courtyards at their centres. The two-storey girls' hostel had diamond shaped halls at two sides of the square that, at the ground floor, included the dining room and the common room. Verandas and terraces were featured prominently along the building's exterior. The post-graduate hostel and polytechnic followed a similar pattern, while the STEP administration block was much more compact with offices, lecture halls and meeting rooms.

This project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1987-2004. The drawings include plans, elevations, sections, perspectives and details, while the textual records consist of correspondence with the client, largely regarding finances and payments.
