Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Tirupati (Competition Entry), Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh

IISER Tirupati is one of eight premier institutes of science education and research in India set up by the Scientific Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (SAC-PM). The institute in Tirupati, founded in 2015, is currently operating from its transit campus, and is set to move to a permanent campus in Srinivasapuram, with an area of 250 acres. HCP submitted a competition entry in 2017 for the comprehensive development of the master plan for the institute.  

The master plan is designed to allow phase-wise growth of the campus, without disturbing its functioning. It maximises the number of interactive public nodes in a compact walkable grid. The academic zone is the heart of the campus, with a central pedestrian-friendly boulevard running through it, which integrates shaded formal and informal spaces. Buildings are clustered around central open spaces to maximise tree cover and make the campus climatically efficient. The residential cluster comprising student hostels, faculty apartments and row houses is arranged along the main green areas, and segregated from the academic zone. An international standard sports facility, which includes gymnasiums, courts and indoor play areas, connects the student residence zones. Sustainable building strategies like collection of rooftop rain water, grey water re-use, storm water run-off treatment, and adaptive thermal comfort design are thoughtfully integrated in the proposal.
