Research Methodology

system design Design for elderly (Team Project) Understanding the complexity of the system, finding the weak links, loop holes in a system and addressing the issues with one or more suitable approaches. The grey area of elderly/ aging was selected and solutions were sought in totality for: Product, Policy and Services. Dealing with urban elderly population extensive research brought forward a set of design principals for age-proof design and also universal design. Dignity, independence & safety: three major concerns in life of elderly.

and policy intervention

Policy Refreshing the brand identity of Government Saving Certificates Impact /expected outcome: The younger generation would be more aware of the savings schemes which are safe and give them better returns which make them financially more secure in their old age. Policy Awareness campaigns Impact /expected outcome: Campaigns to generate awareness amongst the elderly about their rights and help them take advantage of the policies. The companies associated with such programs will in-turn get good will and publicity of their brand. Service Universal Help line Impact /expected outcome: Easy accessibility to services. No dependence on other people for help. Providing peace of mind and independence.

SURAKSHA Cotton begins to suffer from drought if its leaves stay above 82° F-27.8° C for more than 6 hours. Farmers can choose the time, temperature threshold at which they would like to receive alerts. Infrared (IR) or laser thermometers monitoring the plant temperature in the farm relay information to computer base station, cell phone modem sends text message to farmer’s cell phone. ADS can tell temperature increase in the farm directly to the farmer or fire station.

Nokia USID design challenge 08 Auto dial alarm system (ADAS) for irrigation/ drought monitoring in a farm. Crops tend to suffer from drought if the irrigation schedule is not micromanaged. Also the requirement for irrigation can vary in different areas in the same farm. If irrigation schedule is micromanaged it can lead to higher yield and good quality of crop without excessive wastage of water.

display and controls Productinterface (Team Project) Analysing and redesigning the interface of Ultrasound system used for sonography The ultrasound system offers a better user experience by allowing for scanning and interpreting of ultrasound images at the point of care with ease. Both the doctors and the technician with limited experience or training who just need basic functionality and ease of operation can use this system easily. Immediate clinical decisions can be made faster which gives the doctor more time to focus on the patient.

The life cycle of Medusa Jellyfish was studied with respect to its Form, Function, Principle Taking inspiration from attributes derived such as Safety, Protection, Biological propulsion, Principle of growth, Buoyancy, Biomechanics, Bioluminescence an illuminated collapsible enclosure was developed which can be used in crowded places like expos for private viewing that is light weight, easy to install and dismantle. Focusing on the form finding and fabrication of minimal surface structures, modularity and efficiency are improved through the repetition of identical components which creates intricate surfaces with only a few types of component, with applications in architecture, product and fashion design.

The process

craft documentation ‘Aranmula Kannadi’ or bronze mirrors of Aranmula Owes its name to the village of Aranmula, a serene little village in Kerala, India. The uniqueness of this craft is in its creation, a closely guarded secret that is known to these gifted craftsmen of Aranmula. It was handed down from generation to generation and is a part of all auspicious occasions. Exquisitely crafted, the oval shaped mirror is traditionally framed in a decorative brass frame. The craft documentation was an attempt to understand the myth regarding the origin and various processes involved in the making of this enigmatic mirror.

Weaving Love, Creating “Hope” The challenge was to create a beautiful symbol of “Hope” in design of a brand new check pattern built on the Grameen check, fabric born of Bangladesh with local resources and skills. Woven in cotton, produced in the poorest region of the country with a hope of economic independence. To commemorate the birth of the first Grameen Felissimo project. This challenge was intended to bring the power of design into action, by injecting an element of excitement to the product line and thereby expanding their market outside their own village and country.

Transformation

Creating checkered pattern using the shadowchecks with seamless- repeat background pattern and transforming it into the letters – HOPE , coloured in the warm shades of red to symbolize love. The alternative colourway is in shades of soothing grey and cool blue.

Consulting architect : P.G.Patki Architects, Mumbai Design concept : Callison Architects, Washington Design Concept Inorbit Mall @ Hi-Tech City Hyderabad was envisioned as a mixed use development incorporating retail, entertainment and office spaces nestled within a sloping terrain amidst a natural rocky setting facing a lake. Located at the periphery of the Mind Space Corporate Campus, the project is targeted to serve the city’s affluent districts and its burgeoning population base. The four level retail and entertainment development is strategically sited to cascade towards the lake and sits on top of four level parking deck carefully crafted within the existing contours. The project also incorporates a 8 level office building with expansive floor plates overlooking the lake.
