MATERIALS
THE USE OF
MATERIALS IN
THE BUILDING
ARE
INTERESTING.
THE WALLS OF THE BUILDING ARE CONSTRUCTED OF
EXPOSED BRICK AND RCC.
THE EXPOSED BRICK WORK GIVES AN EERIE LOOK TO THE
STRUCTURE.
THEY ALSO INCREASE THE THERMAL PERFORMANCE OF THE
BUILDING.
FEATURES
SKYLIGHTS:
One can see an interesting use of skylights in the structure.
Maximum skylights are provided on the north faade of the building
There are open to sky(OTS) corridors provided in the campus.
Provision of flexible spaces which can be used in multifunctional
manner.
Strong connectivity between spaces making it an open space with no
doors
Skylights
TO GAIN MAXIMUM SUN LIGHT AND
VENTILATION

PEARL
ACADEMY,JAIPUR
The Jaipur campus has an excellent infrastructure to
facilitate design learning and education.
the foundation stone of this campus on 29th January
2007, during her tenure as the Governor of Rajasthan.
The Jaipur Campus boasts state-of-the-art Jewellery &
Gemology Labs. It is fully equipped with learning
equipment and spaces required by an international
design college and boasts of alumni who are amongst
the whos who of design professionals today.
The Jaipur Campus hosted the 14th International
Conference of the International Foundation for Fashion
Technology Institutes in 2012. Spread over 3.28 acres,
the state-of-the-art Jaipur Campus provides its students
with advanced teaching facilities, making it the ideal
place to learn the nuances of fashion and design. The
campus also won the Best Learning Building award at
the World Architecture Festival Awards, 2009.
COURSES
The study programme of the cources offer :

School of fashion styling and textiles

School of design

School of communication,media and Films

School of creative business


The building is protected from the environment
by a double skin which is derived from a
traditional building element called the Jaali
which is prevalent in Rajasthani architecture.
The double skin acts as a thermal buffer
between the building and the surroundings. The
density of the perforated outer skin has been
derived using computational shadow analysis
based on orientation of the faades. The outer
skin sits 4 feet away from the building and
reduces the direct heat gain through
fenestrations. Drip channels running along the
inner face of the Jaali allow for passive
downdraft evaporative cooling, thus reducing

temperature. DESIGN
plan
courtyards
The scheme relies on self shading sliver courts to control the
temperatures of internal spaces and open stepped wells while
allowing for sufficient day lighting inside studios and class rooms. The
entire building is raised above the ground and a scooped out under
belly forms a natural thermal sink which is cooled by water bodies
through evaporative cooling. This under belly which is thermally
banked on all sides serves as a large student recreation and exhibition
zone and forms the anchor for the entire project. During the night
when the desert temperature drops this floor slowly dissipates the
heat to the surroundings keeping the area thermally comfortable. This
time lag suits the staggered functioning of the institute.

Material used
The materials used for construction are a mix of local stone, steel,
glass, and concrete chosen keeping in mind the climatic needs of the
region while retaining the progressive design intent. Energy efficiency
is a prime concern and the institute is 100% self sufficient in terms of
captive power and water supply and promotes rain water harvesting
and waste water re-cycling through the use of a sewage treatment
plant
About the college
. Besides having become a very successful model for cost effective
passive architecture in desert regions the design and facilities of the
campus complement the ideology of the Pearl Academy of Fashion
a cutting edge design institute with a sustainable approach. The Pearl
Academy of Fashion is an exemplar of an inclusive architecture which
intends to accommodate all the heritage values while positioning it
within the contemporary cultural and architectural paradigm.
