School Concept


Since the 6th century CE, the Meenas, Rajputs, Yadavs, Jats, Bhils, Gurars, and Bishnois tribes have developed into a collection of smaller kingdoms that built palaces to provide protection from invaders while ensuring continuation of their rich traditions. Today, these palaces connect to the ancient past with modern day society, creating a distinctive architectural landscape not found anywhere else in the world. The design of the Boarding School for Girls draws architectural inspiration from these majestic palaces; from monumental circulation paths, sunbathed hierarchic proportions and the peaceful geometric patios which provide a perfect and serene environment for students, faculty, and visitors. Divided into three parts, denoted as “Learn, Live, and Play,” the program design approaches learning in a holistic manner, with 64 of the total 103-acres dedicated to social and sports activities. The remainder of the campus is comprised of academic and residential facilities.
