In a paradigm of concrete and brick, Bangalore International Centre is formed out of slim concrete frame encasing a steel framed glass box. Though the compact site has more limitations to offer than advantages but the design by  studio Hundredhands which was chosen out of a competition held in 2012, is a poetry of interchanging volumes. Since there was less opportunity to inhabit open spaces in the design, the playful transitions and intermediate connections creates a diverse range of spatial language. The design accommodate an oculus which creates vertical connections within the building that expands the volume furthermore.
