‘CONVERGENCE : Intervening in’ . The design combined the architectural and the non architectural worlds and acted as a MERGER of both. A place for all. It was envisioned as a place that would not be defined by walls but would be shaped by the user interface and interactions that take place in and around the campus. The central design theme revolved around architecture being a SILENT profession which is focused on PROVIDING SHELTER for all, which helps in directing the lives of people inhabiting it, but here, at COA – Centre of Excellence, it would be the people who help shape the building. The site is a 2 Acre land with natural contours and  plenty of existing trees and vegetation on site. The program proposed is to include an auditorium, an exhibition center, a learning center, a training center, offices, guest houses and dining.
