2. Project Description
The project proposed is Natya academy and cultural complex, Gurugram, Haryana.
The municipal Corporation of gurugram proposes Natya Academy and Cultural
complex on a 10 acres land in sector 53, Gurugram, Haryana.
This project is combination of two parts namely Natya Academy and Cultural
Complex. Firstly, Natya refers to the theatrical dance art of India originating in the
temple and still devoted to the enactment of divine epics and embracing an elaborate
system of body postures, hand gestures and foot movements.
Therefore, Natya academy is an academy of performing ancient Indian dance.
Culture can be define as the ideas, customs or social behaviour of a particular people
or society. Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people,
language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts. The word "culture" derives
from a French term, which in turn derives from the Latin "colere," which means to
tend to the earth and grow, or cultivation and nurture.

Therefore, a cultural complex may be defined as a platform of different cultural
activities, social gathering and different exhibitions.
With the cities growing into urban culture, the need for the growth of a cultural
complex and public spaces in the corporate city is often ignored. Therefore, the
emphasis is to establish the link between the city and the cultural complex. Also, to
generate the new landmark for Gurugram. To create a holistic environment for
learning, teaching and performing arts and spaces.
Due to these reasons, the Natya Academy and Cultural Complex is being proposed by
Municipal Corporation of Gurugram to make people aware of their culture and
traditional Dance of india.

connection between the people and their culture and also, to create a public space with
traditional learning and teaching and for entertainment purpose.
