Location - Jaipur
Vimukti Sanstha, a registered not-for-profit society, is an initiative to combat and overcome the discrimination against the girl child through equitable education and overall development. Started in 2004, Vimukti Sanstha’s Vimukti Girls’ School (VGS) is an RBSE affiliated school providing education to 600 students of low-income families from the slum areas of jaipur.
Considering that this project had a limited budget and was to be built by people's donations, we did not plan "a build and donate" scenario and instead opted for a participation method of Construction that would promote sustainable development and produce social, economic, and cultural infrastructures.
Moreover open environment trees, grounds, parks, social interactions makes kid more productive. If women Empowerment is affected it can only be carried forward by education can be theoretical or skill based. Women shares half of the nation therefore it is similarly important to educate women for the development of country. Even if we go more deeper in to this subject we’ll understand that Maa is the first teacher of the child so if we are ignoring the education of women we are ignoring the nation’s bright future.
As a result, we designed a school with the idea of becoming the center of community gather working for the development of women , where many activities could be organized for their well beings defining the infinite strengths within women.
The building has been designed in infinite loop which allows people to have a transition between open, semi open and closed areas. We have played with different geometrical shapes and sizes to enhance the experience of the user. The wider area of the building is facing towards the south and west. To avoid direct sunlight and heat gain we have introduced a separate and playful perforated skin with many different patterns which allows the users to sit out at multiple spaces.
