The city of Bhiwadi, located on the border of Rajasthan and Haryana, plagues with inefficient agriculture with the advent of rapid industrialisation. The training centre aims to revive the city's capacity to grow organic food by involving both people and farmers in the process. This project targets the declining food resources in Bhiwadi that shall not only help farmers and other learners to learn the new techniques of organic farming to top-up their produce, but also provide the residents of Bhiwadi a healthy food supply.

Site Plan

Grandeur. Elegance. Ties with Nature. The terracotta jali arches possess an indispensable Rajasthani character which combined with biophilic spaces create an enlivening experience.

The academic block stands as the main block of the site as it is where the learning happens. Thought off as a building with an open layout with a touch of Rajasthani essence, it is planned around a huge central public space where can learners can learn even from each other.
