This project aims to design an eco-tourism hub in Bastar and construct it in accordance with environmentally friendly principles. It also aims to sensitize the people about the beauty and fragility of nature through Eco architecture. The Bastar Eco-tourism hub focuses on personal growth, environmental sustainability, and socially responsible travel. Tourism will be used to raise tourists’ awareness of the impact humans have on the environment, and to promote a greater appreciation of nature by encouraging, promoting, and cultivating this habit amongst them. It strives to design, construct, operate and maintain a building’s energy, including water and the amount of waste causing negative effects on human health and the surrounding environment. Besides reducing the consumption of resources, it also strives to limit pollution emissions and resulting waste, as well as ensuring that less harm is done to the environment as a result of building construction and operations. A sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to architecture is clarified, understood, and practiced at the eco-tourism hub in Bastar in order to curb these effects and design environmentally sound and resource-efficient buildings
