"We must create architectural spaces in which man can experience—as he does with poetry or music—surprise, discovery, intellectual stimulation, and Joie de vivre" – Tadao Ando
MYRA's acclaimed campus is an ideal setting for learning.
While it is a radical departure from the traditional business school architecture, it was designed to address the specific needs of management students – fostering an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, collaboration, and networking.
The campus was designed by the award-winning Bangalore firm, Architecture Paradigm, who were inspired by the ensemble of rocks and boulders that dot the Bangalore–Mysore highway. It makes optimum use of space and natural light and has often been referred to as "poetry in concrete."
The academic architecture resonates with our vision and mission. It is designed to create two worlds – futuristic exterior image, a facade that expresses the aspirations of the institution and all the stakeholders and the interior world is a microcosm of the city, a series of public spaces and quadrangle, drama of light and shades, and a stunningly beautiful library for knowledge sharing and discovery.
