Himalayan Institute of Alternatives, Ladakh | Exploring Alternative Learning Paradigms through Architectural Interventions to Support Ladakh

Himalayan Institute of Alternatives, Ladakh (HIAL), an alternative university envisioned to engage the local youth in studies related to their unique environment and needs, and contribute to their society. HIAL seeks to become an exemplar in providing hand-on learning and practical solutions to the complex challenges of mountain development. The university integrates local know-how and technology such as the innovative ‘Ice Stupas’ to provide water to inhabitants, locally-sourced materials, and a series of passive design strategies and planning considerations — including 100% pedestrianized areas to reinforce its ideals of ecologically-sensitive thinking.
