Perkins Eastman | Indian School Of Business: Mohali Campus

Indian School of Business: Mohali Campus

Mohali, India
To further establish the institution as a global leader in business education, The Indian School of Business hired Perkins Eastman as design architect for their second campus in northern India. The 28-hectare (70-acre) campus is designed to accommodate 1,200 students enrolled in ISB’s one-year graduate program and a maximum of 100 students in one- to two-week executive programs. The goal was to create a vibrant complex that allows for future growth and strong connection to its natural environment and the surrounding Knowledge City community.

The design draws from the Indian sandstone of ISB’s existing Hyderbad campus while considering modern elements that are relevant to the rich architectural history of Chandigarh. The main academic building’s canopy is a defining campus element, dividing the complex into smaller academic blocks and creating courtyards for students and faculty to interact and socialize. The canopy superstructure also plays a role in moderating the extreme climate with shading from sun and shelter from rain.

Residences for students and 120 faculty members are organized into clusters with facing verandas. Campus amenities include 9,290 sm (100,000 sf) of commons areas comprising meeting rooms, athletic facilities, dining, and a recreation center. Sustainable strategies are integrated throughout, and the project strives to achieve LEED Gold or equivalent.
