Considering the fact that unwanted garbage accumulation being on the rise, thus becoming a nuisance in our everyday life, the Project Brief introduced us to an idea of designing any usable product or a space using any recyclable material that we tend to discard. Thus, the primary aim was to select any discarded material as the main building material and a secondary joining material. Hence, the material which I selected was Paper rolls, a widely used material in most of the garment shops that are thrown away after two - three intervals of usage . They are used to roll clothing (suiting or shirting cloth) around them. The joining material was jute rope and the supporting material was discarded M.S. strips. The end result generated into design of a Sun – Shade for Scooters, an urgent need for two wheeler drivers in this sweltering heat of Mumbai.

The project initiated with understanding the life and working pattern of various working professionals throughout the city, each student being assigned a professional. Hence, for the Dabbawala, the idea spring point began with decoding various codes that are used by the Dabbawalas in order to sustain a strong working network, which thus generated into a 2-d pattern. Infusing this 2-D pattern with complex physical movements which a Dabbawala has to perform throughout his entire work journey, a 3-D module was generated. Thus, arranging these modules in a particular order based on the 2-D pattern, the Expression Space of a Dabbawala came into existence.

3RD YR WORKS

As part of the Basic Design studio, the project began with generating drawings of thrown away tin cans, thus forming a 2-D layout through plans and sections. The drawings were later filtered to create sectional profiles at some intervals throughout the tin sheet. These profiles were then connected forming an undulated sheet, thus imitating the tin sheet. This undulated surface when inverted formed the roof of the Art gallery. Some of the connecting panels were then removed allowing play of light in side the art gallery, which became the point of distinction for each student’s design. A structural column was then assigned to each of the bays of the roof.

The original Glass house by Philip Johnson

The project was divided into four parts – studying the philosophy of the architect allotted, choosing one of his structure and its analysis, idea spring point and finally the design intervention. Thus, from the analysis, Glass as a material has been used for two purposes – To view the landscape and To get viewed by a spectator which somehow fits into Philip Johnson’s working style and his philosophy. Hence, the intervention idea arose to create a cenotaph, thus paying tribute to his philosophy. For the Intervention, Mirror as a material has been used to recreate the experience as part of the tribute. The Mirror used in this case is a double sided mirror, hence for the spectator, he sees a continuous landscape, while inside, standing on the platform, the observer becomes an object as he is viewed by himself through multiple internal reflections.

The project commenced with documenting the existing studio tables and then, coming up with a design solution in order to make the studio table more workable according to each individual’s needs. Hence, in this design of the table, problem of space has been strategically tackled with the table utilizing minimum space in a closed configuration thereby not hampering its storage spaces. Also, in the open configuration the storage spaces are arranged in a way to ease the student’s working. Also, transparent acrylic sheet and wire mesh has been used used for storage, thus adding transparency to the table.

Overview of the Museum

The Idea for this project was based on the true meaning of Interplay – ‘An activity which is fully absorbing, includes elements of uncertainty and which exits outside primary life. Play’s purpose is to generate more possibilities for play’. Hence, design evolved is extensively based on the above mentioned quote as an Interplay ensues between the visitor and the space when he enters the museum. Elements such as the Wall at the entrance with niches, a linear path connecting all the galleries, the building resting on pilotis, trees and natural light as Guiding elements, each gallery signifying a particular game, etc. have been used to recreate the above mentioned experience. The site for the project, is located at Kandivali – east, near W.E. highway. On one side, it faces the road overlooking the W.E. highway, while on the opposite side it faces the Times of India Building. The Site comes under National Sports Authority Complex.

The Project Brief was about designing a weekend gate–away for employees of companies located at Mumbai and Pune. Considering their stressful jobs, the retreat should facilitate a mental as well physical break from their hectic schedule and also, to break ice and increase communication within the employees. Hence, a spiritual approach on an individual level and community interaction on a group level formed the theme of this design project. Thus, elements such as meandering pathways, shaded regions along the journey, observation points at regular intervals, Spirituality as the main connecting program, structures elevated from the ground, thus columns imitating forest of trees, interactive courtyards etc. have been used to heighten the experience on an individual as well as group level. The site is located at Penn, a town which is a 2 hr. drive away from Mumbai. The Site is a contoured site with the highest point at 75 m. The site is well shaded, being covered by trees and shrubs.

The brainstorming for ideas in this project commenced with first understanding the city and its relationship with the people. Looking at this relationship on an individual level as well as on a city level, the relationship turned out to be AMBIGOUS, being diverse for each individual. Hence, in order to portray this thought, elements such as large Reflective Wall at the entrance – to get backdrop of the city, play of voids and reflective surfaces on the façade, etc. have been used. The programs include temporary exhibition gallery on the deck while permanent exhibition gallery inside the enclosed space of the pavilion.

The idea for this project was to create an Institute using its ultimate medium as its exhibit which is hence signified by the transparency in the auditorium (Roof and Wall). Also, the circulation makes a strong working environment for the students, which has hints of Pan-Opticon, thus carrying forward the idea of fashion – the ‘Human’. To facilitate maximum interaction between the students, a Ramp has been provided catering to the private programs, which ends at students research center. Also, through the ramp they have a view of the city as well as of the institute, hence enabling as source of inspiration to the students. Spill – out spaces such as balconies and terraces have been provided on each floor allowing more interaction.

Due to this rat race, quality of education suffers the most as the schools are evolving with providing various infrastructural facilities, but the quality of space required for learning has remained constant or is left unexplored. Firstly, the thesis looked at the history of school education and through documentation of two city schools, the thesis studies the existing schooling scenario. Thus, after drawing conclusions from the above study, the thesis tries to answer the needs of the city through a design project.

Thesis – A new approach to design of a ‘School’ Abstract - In the recent times, the field of education has witnessed numerous variations on a large scale. Due to the rising commercial aspect, schools are becoming grander in terms of garnering the image of being the best one in its field. In order to sustain in the this competition, schools tend to market themselves through various lucrative offers , thereby rendering the students as mere consumers of a product. Over the years, School marketing, in India and across the world, has become a booming industry, and is set to grow even further as the focus of schools is on building sustainable brands. Research shows that marketing spends are on the rise in response to the increased competition for students, staff, and resources. The aim is to attract and increase the quality of students every year, retain top faculty, increase student placement opportunities through continuous interaction with businesses, optimize cost of achievement per candidate. Also, in this scenario, misleading architectural imagery plays a significant role where it becomes the platform to attract the consumers.

A New approach to design of a ‘School’

After studying the existing situation, it is clear that there are various schools in the city imparting education through diverse approaches, with each having its own scale of conduct. Theoretically speaking, the learning environment required for each of them should be different, based on their principles of functioning. But in practice, a standardise plan of a double or single loaded corridor with classrooms and other program spaces on either sides becomes the common ground when it comes to formulating a dedicated space for the same. Looking at the documentation of the city based schools; the most striking flaw, which requires serious attention, would be the failure to address the curiosity of the child at any given age. Children at any age, have a tendency to know about what their schoolmates are learning, irrespective of the age group. With a walled - fortress like classroom, this desire of the child often gets unanswered. Another major area of concern is the ignorance towards the scale of spaces. In order to maximise the space and avoid any complicated structural arrangement, the scale of the classrooms as well as other program spaces remain the same throughout all the age groups. Due to this, there is a sense of reluctance amongst the students to familiarize with the school space. Finally, the quality of space, which differs from each institution, requires instant consideration. The learning environment required for each age group is different and depends on their psychological growth at each stage. Use of repetitive and uninteresting as well as over stimulating visuals of spaces may create a hurdle in learning by altering their thought processes. Hence, a significant amount of energy should be spent on to create a visually inspiring learning environment with equilibrium maintained between the dull as well as over doing of spaces.

The site is located in a humble neighbourhood of Chinchpokli along the lalbaug flyover, which is at a 10 min. walking distance from Chinchpokli railway station. The school is surrounded by a variety of programs i.e. residential, commercial, industrial, etc. Topographically, the site sits on a flat ground with a large open space on the rear side of the school plot. The school building is G+4 structure consisting of classrooms along the road side while offices, pre-school classrooms and a multipurpose hall is on the rear side of the school plot.

Site Context:

Site Justification: 1) The aim is to design an institution which promotes education with an holistic approach of learning which focuses on – finding child’s true identity, meaning and purpose of his life. 2) The above can be achieved through connections to community, to natural world and spiritual values. 3) Hence, such a project requires a strong neighbourhood where cross exchange of knowledge takes place between the students and the community, thus educating both of them. 4) With this project, apart from learning, the intervention would serve as a core to restore harmony within its people. 5) The site at chinchpokli is up for redevelopment, in order to upgrade and modernize the current situation. The planned project is a school tower at the present site which will accommodate all the requirements. And thus, will might be a blunder of the past mistakes. 6) Hence, to avoid the above scenario, the designed project will thus serve as a proposal to the redevelopment project and also, to the city as an example of a school with an out of the box approach of learning which takes cues from its own people and nature when it comes to facilitate education in a dense neighbourhood.

On closely studying the movement patterns, it is clear that majority of the students, learning in this institution reside in the close proximity of the institute. Currently, the insitute does not provide any seating or waiting area for the parents who have come to dropp of their children. Due to this, they are forced to wait at the school gate causing traffic jam and inconvinience to other residents.

Reference Plans and Elevations for Concrete Shuttering: For this bungalow project in Chennai, the walls were to be constructed using reinforced concrete. Also, some of the walls were designed to sport an exposed concrete finish, while some of them were to be plastered and painted. Due to this, reference plans and elevations were required in order to construct the formwork at site with constrained dimensions, thus enabling a constant grid of shuttering lines for aesthetic reasons. For this reason, all the walls were labelled and there corresponding elevation were drawn.
