The Rajasthan School
by Sanjay Puri Architects

Sanjay Puri Architects

Sanjay Puri Architects has designed a low-rise three-level school with open, enclosed and semi-enclosed spaces of varying volumes.

Rajasthan School derives its character from organic old cities, with an informal layout, interspersed with open and enclosed volumes that have been designed in response to the hot climate, creating a school that is exploratory in multiple ways.

The organic layout creates a different character to each part of the school orienting each space with different views and different perceptions.

The auditorium, primary school and administration space occupy the southern side of the plot, opening into a large sheltered open area towards the north, beyond which the secondary classrooms, library and cafeteria are located.


This project has been longlisted in the civic building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
