20. ANALYSIS 1.Tucked in the corner of the campus one finds the vast green open space with peace and serenity . 2.The functions present in the site complements the overall landscape . 3.Landscape provides free open space for all the three buildings which form a gathering area which facilitates informal interaction. 5.Irrigation facilities are provided. 6.Different plants are planted in different zones and thus break the monotony. 7. The ramps and staircase of the youth caf are very comfortable. 8.Bamboo and other tall trees grown at the back side to create a visual barrier.
21. 1.Number of trees and outdoor seating is insufficient. 2.Less number of shade providing trees with large foliage. 3.No water feature present. 4.The sunken court of the youth caf is forming a negative space as its not getting utilized and is redundant. 5.Only two types of flowering plants are there. 6.Paths were not well lit. 7. The slabs on which the sculptures are placed could have been used for seating. 8.Weeds growing around the petunias are not removed and therefore they compete with the petunias for nutrients and hamper the plant's growth.
