Hidden behind a clump of trees is an elegant, old, modernist building called the Max Muller Bhavan, currently run as a center for German studies by the Goethe Institute.
The buildings was undergoing some renovations, and our brief was to create a small sit out garden for the students who come there.
The treatment of the design is simple and straight forward. The column grid of the architecture lends itself to the geometry of the landscape design and the layout of the benches and walkway.
