The design of Indian Institute of Forest Management (IIFM), Bhopal is inspired by the belief that Institutions are self-contained entities, whose growth is nurtured by a process of self-renewal through the various stages of their development.
The plan of the Institute depicts a set of space requirements for various activities. The complex should be architecturally interpreted as a homogenous entity rather than as separately identified buildings for specific functions on distinct territories. This perception of continuity mitigates isolationist tendencies and eases the progress towards academic and social interaction, both of which are the hallmark of a successful and flexible Institute. To this end, the plan attempts lo create a sense of community without contradicting the student's need to feel independent.
