LINK CORRIDOR: VIDYA SAGAR INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH, AMRITSAR.-----
Guinness World Record for "Longest Covered Concrete Corridor" is:
"The longest covered concrete corridor has a total length of 1,018.89 m (3,342 ft 9.7 in) and was designed by Sarbjit Singh Bahga (India) to connect the various buildings of the Dr. Vidya Sagar Institute of Mental Health, Amritsar, Punjab, India. The record was verified on 22 May 2014".----
All the building blocks in the campus have been laid out on a strict Cartesian pattern with symmetrical juxtaposition reminiscent of traditional Indian campuses. The built-up masses and the open spaces are ingeniously interwoven to create a building-in-the-garden effect. The entire hospital complex has been linked by vaulted corridor running independently through open spaces with greenery on both the sides.This link corridor measures 1118 metres in length and is perhaps one of the longest corridors in the world. Built-up benches have been provided at certain intervals for casual sitting while walking in the corridor. The intersections of two corridors have been developed as a 20 feet by 20 feet chowk with a high roof.
