Art and gardens at BIS

Art and gardens at BIS

BIS also has an artistic face apart from being primarily a scientific organization. The idea behind the art, extensive gardens, and forest and wetland conservation is to create an atmosphere of serene tranquillity and uplift that will elevate the human spirit and inspire creativity of the scientists working at BIS. Creating a world of peace in a day-to-day working ambience can enhance scientific productivity.
