The Andhra Pradesh High Court complex in Amaravati, the new capital of the state would be in unique shape. The Amaravati region was a Buddhist center for centuries and hence the design of the complex would be in the shape of a stupa. On the contrary, the Legislative Complex would be diamond shaped taking inspiration from the Kohinoor, which was found centuries ago near Guntur, 35 km from Amaravati. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu approved the designs for boost the building on Wednesday. While talking to Indian Express,”Both are symbolic of this region known as Amaravati. The stupa signifies happiness, and justice is the greatest happiness I want my people to feel, reflected by the High Court. The Assembly building, at the center of the city, would be inspired by the historic Kohinoor, which was born in this very land.” A British architectural company, Foster & Partners would be responsible for designing Andhra’s new capital city.
The firm had submitted various proposals among which were the designs of AP high court and Assembly Complex. The CM reviewed the final design along with the municipal administration and Urban Development Minister Dr. P Narayana. “I am excited that we have reached the final stage,” Narayana said.
Meanwhile, yesterday the Andhra Pradesh CM had said that his government’s new land pooling scheme is aimed at making the farmer the ultimate gainer as per IE. In an interview to ANI he said, “In the land pooling policy, the farmers are the ultimate gainers in the system. This has never happened in the history of India or even in any democratic country. Many global education institutions, international hotels, IT companies and world class infrastructure are coming here in Amaravati now. I am trying my best to develop infrastructure to strengthen the economy. Once developed, you would see it as among top five global cities.”
