A Modern Beacon for India’s IT Capital

Public, Discovery Centre at Bhartiya City | Bengaluru, India

Demonstrating the progressive urban intent for Bhartiya City, at Bengaluru, The
Discovery Centre is a flexible town hall. The design explores sustainable development
with a hi-tech approach to construction, allowing for disassembly and reassembly in the
future. A distinctive red ovoid auditorium, built with composite fibre, is conceived amidst
an urban plaza drawing visitors towards the town hall. The material palette of the larger
structure comprises glass, steel, fabric and locally-available sadarhalli stone. Perforated
fabric, frit printed glass, water soluble steel paint and a 100% fresh air system with thermal storage results in a striking and efficient public realm.
