A community centre along the market street as a
landmark of civic amenities where communities
meet, organise themselves and discuss growth alternatives. It is also a backdrop for celebrations
of everyday lives and festivals. The Community
Centre also houses civic amenities that are currently absent from the village. The space is designed to create safe environment for women by
assembling different kinds of vibrant programs
together. The place will be always lively and
active and be comfortable for women to access.
Gundagurthi village is still disconnected from
the sanitation grid and lacks basic
infrastructure and civic amenities. Currently
the village consists of the main bazar street and
housing clusters scattered across the
landscape. Currently the Bazar street and
spaces in between houses behave as community spaces for their everyday lives.
The architecture takes the form of a landmark
that can be easily identified as a public building due to its iconic imagery. The building is designed as a brick screen, where porous surfaces
allow the building to breathe with natural light
and wind. Brick is used as the construction material as it is abundantly available in Gulbarga district.
The Amphitheatre is a space where women
could gather, children could play, and senior
citizens can meet for evening conversations.
The space could also be used for community
gatherings, weekly markets, medical camps &
mohalla meetings. Beneath the Amphitheatre are housed the Library, Multipurpose Hall, A Health Post, Vocational Centre and Public Toilets.
