Khosla Associates won a competition to design the new Arts and Media Centre at The Doon School, India’s premier all boys’ boarding school. Integral to the concept of the new Arts and Media Centre is the journey of an artist , interpreted as a central spine that runs east- west along the entire length of the site; dissolving into the ample lung space of a landscaped garden. The artist traces the path but is encouraged to break away from it in the all-important process of self-discovery. The axis encourages one to traverse, pause, take a turn, wander and reflect. The two buildings of the art school – one for art instruction primarily housing painting, ceramic, sculpture , and textile studios, and the other, with a lecture hall, film studio, publications room, and display galleries, are connected by an internal bridge.
