A campus is a place formed by its buildings but also by the spaces in between. This book tells the story of the making of the IIM Bangalore campus (designed by B.V. Doshi, A. Kanvinde and Sanjay Mohe) and of the people who have inhabited its spaces and made it into the place that it is. It shares how this campus came into being and how it has been experienced over time. The key question it asks is: In an institutional campus, how does one allow for change and simultaneously express a continuity with the past? It is hoped that it would be interesting for both those who have been a part of its growth as well as the architectural community who admire it immensely for the creative inputs and the evolving design language that have shaped it.
