Incorporating multiple interactive spaces, small to large discussion spaces, laboratories, auditoriums with ‘learn to learn’ essence, which also makes it imperative that the training resonates with how students learn.

The outdoor and Indoor spaces are seamlessly integrated by creating the entry portal with large steps, making it cohesive using the current color scheme of the BHU Campus.
