The National Tribal Academy is a complex of buildings which responds to the site; it revolves around an age old Mahua tree.

A “sacred” platform that is rocks out-crop transforms itself into an amphitheatre; visiting tribals are housed in a groove of trees circling yet another rock out-crop; no trees have been cut; the beginning of this very special space.

Place for the tribals jostles gently with the archaeological finds of a tribal kingdom – several centuries old.

The introverted inward looking spaces with vistas along its axis are dedicated to the life, spaces, cultures of the tribals; spaces which help in the regeneration of their spirits.

The projects incorporates a library, museum, residential and administration block all axially located around courts and tree clusters for prospering better social interaction and positive growth of the culturally rich tribes.

Thus its physical mean by which v lend a common ground the tribal to live, flourish and inspire.
