Center for Electronics Design and Technology
Calicut, India
The center includes a library, a computer facility, a seminar room, classrooms, and laboratories. The adaptability and functional nature of the traditional style was exploited to achieve the design objectives of the project. The various facilities in the complex have been grouped in clusters around courtyards in the traditional form breaking down its scale to a more human level. The water tower is a symbolic vertical element, much like the steeple or minaret which announce the presence of the building in its neighbourhood.
