| PROLOGUE| “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” - Martin Luther King


| K.A.R.T.A. |

Karigar Anusthapan Rozgaar and Training Academy Primary Guide: Dr. Shishir R. Raval Secondary Guide: Dr. S.Brintha Lakshmi

The thesis aspires to reclaim the lives of workers and regenerate the dignity of labour and re associate the idea of karigari with the Construction Craftsmen and the Construction Industry. The proposal is for a state of the art school with skill training to serve the critical market requirement of skilled workers and as a support system to set new benchmarks and redefine practices related to construction work, occupational health and Safety, living standards and to inculcate synergies among the government, patrons, material suppliers, developers and institutions (like CREDAI, L&T, SEWA, ITIs etc.) and the workers.


the motivation Out of the total number of people employed by the construction Industry around 75% are workers, In most of the cases to be a construction worker is a compulsion & not a choice. Yet, every building made – all construction accomplished - all architecture in 1:1 scale happens through the undervalued contribution of these workers. What we often fail to realize is that

“All buildings are workplaces before they ever become apartments, art museums, shopping centres, concert halls or sport stadiums”

These workplaces are not safe, don’t have an acceptable work culture many a times, don’t demonstrate examples of equality or equity and aren’t obviously any good to work in. The family gets into the sector together, living in homes potla (tents in the night and wrapped up during the day), chawls/slums, on site labour colonies of marginalized conditions, with which is born the “umbilical cord of labour”, a lineage of slave labourers.

the labour chowks

a labour naka in Abhilasha Chowk, Vadodara

As architects we design for different communities but this community is the one that we interact with on an everyday basis, and it is pitiable that these vishwakarmas or kartas or labourers are living- learning-working in questionable conditions, this thesis more visibly tries to address the issue related to their learning & working conditions and also tries to inculcate new morals for their living conditions. The labour chowks or nakas played an important role in understanding the social dimension of their work culture which might be lost if these were to be institutionalized, would the nakas then become defunct? the learning classrooms as of now were the new sites and these chowks apart from points of socializing and panchayat, were also like recruitment centres and work profile connections for these people.  Another important derivative from the chowks were ideas for such spaces in the design to induce dialogue and conversation in the institution that could be proposed.

Focus Areas 

कारीगर

- Craftsmen Because the skill of building needs to be understood as an Art and Science, where we stop taking for granted a person’s skill to build things of mere imagination

अनुथापन - Orientation

For us and for them, orientation lies in understanding relativity and interdependence of us humans on each other

रोजगार - Employment

A recruitment locus, registering and maintaining records of workers, skill-pages (like yellow pages) acting as an institute for outreach.

टेिनंग - Training Up-skilling and craftsmanship and the ambiance of learning अकादमी - Academy As a society or artists that can maintain, promote and thrive on the renewed standards of practices Mela/Expo - Poonam

Theatre - sangmanch

Tool Bank

Community Kitchen - Dhaba

a periodical exhibition and market to maintain interaction and exchange and to sell products made during workshops.

Convocation Space for cultural celebrations inducing togetherness & lifelike environment into the campus.

To facilitate self employment of workers and supply them with machines and tools on lease basis.

To induce and promote togetherness inculcate an environment of charcha (discussion) over tea and food.

Housing - Rehnaak

Activity /Play Area

Training - Dialogue based

Training - Hands On

on site residential facility for the trainees and their family, a place to go back to after training

For kids of workers that can also function as a creche where these kids can be left, while their parents are in workshops.

discourses of functional literacy, understanding drawing reading and application, technical knowhow of paper and digital medium`

Learning by doing thus enabling the karta’s to learn new skills or to upskill themselves with newer Techniques.

|program|


Why Vadodara? Taking up a tier II and an emerging Indian city like Vadodara wood enable me to look and address the issue for multiple number of cities, a model for cities that are going to become concentrations of infrastructural developments in the coming years then becomes the task. The site is chosen to fill the gap as per the existing ITI’s and vocational training centres in a part of Vadodara that is easily accessible to just from the city but also from the highway without actually having to enter the city. In order to avoid becoming an isolated program of good faith & vision the chosen location talks of being a part of the much urbanizing and enormous city life and be a trigger

Construction Industry’s Vadodara domain Labour Naka Chowks or Crossroads where construction workers come early morning (7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.) to get a job for the day from the contractors of common people looking for task-workers and return to their homes if they do not find work. Vadodara has 12 such Labour Nakas namely Hari Nagar, Chhani Jakat Naka, Gorwa-Darshanam, Sangam char rasta, Abhilasha Chowkdi, Vrundavan, Ajwa Crossing, Nyay Mandir, Manisha Chowkdi, Manjalpur, Jupiter Crossing, Bapod. CREDAI Office L&T Vadodara Organizations like CREDAI & L&T can become providers as partner institutions to this centre and help the program thrive. BUILDERS/CONTRACTORS Material Suppliers People to and for support. It is a synergistic interdependence between both parties and can help make such a program robust. Existing ITI’s Educational Institutions  (related to construction)In order to gather together, exchange & grow.

|site studies|

Recording Gestalt

The site’s past

The proposed site was a scrub land in contrast to the neighbouring plots that had noticeable green cover, activities as observed were drawn that revealed features of the land and past landuse

A deeper inspection revealed that this site was a panjra pole too, before the highway, and change of agricultural pattern. Cattle was still brought to the site as nearby plots were used for grazing


Tree Cover Green : Existing Red : Destroyed

Road Network roads on the site : Primary, Secondary and tertiary

Seasonal water network blue : existing ; red: destroyed/absent

the site under consideration had all three levels of roads a national highway, a proposed state highway, a link road.

Revealed in concoction with the green cover mapping the destruction of an exiting water network in the past 7 years.

To the North of the proposed site is the Air force Campus, with a green buffer of varying width in between and also a state highway (proposed), cutting through between the two. The western edge is marked by the National highway 48, an important route in the DMIC. on the other side of the Highway is Vadodara Municipal Corporation’s existing panjra pole - the Gujarati word for an animal care centre. Towards  the South is the APMC -Agricultural Produce Market Committee , including their administrative buildings and a vegetable wholesale mandi. The orange zone  marked shows areas that will experience high noise due to traffic and activity on the roads. The blue zone shows areas that might experience collecting or flowing water seasonally, owing to the larger water connections it has to the city’s watershed

In the name of development 

The two satellite images on the right show absence of a water body earlier present on the site. The story that the site showed informed a great deal about the way an intervention could be made. K.A.R.T.A. Karigar Anusthapan Rozgaar and Training Academy

the frames of learning, exchange & activity The workshops were first conceived as a series of frames, when viewed from the catchment area, these frames become the canvases where the learning/teaching/exchange happens and gives the viewer a collage of various works being taught/practiced

Process models The idea to make frame structures in different materials like concrete and steel , these become like canvases or practice frames for the art and learning and also become exhibition spaces - that show the learning process

|models|


departments model These frames were later integrated and thought as the structure of the departments itself/ and extended version of the structure become practice frames

K.A.R.T.A. Karigar Anusthapan Rozgaar and Training Academy


Creating intergenerational spaces conducive to industry - workmen dialogue, and incorporating attitude of flexibility and ‘jugaad’ has acted as compelling image information in defining material language of the design. The design is an attempt to find an amalgam of a robust learning and work environment & a reflection of the tribal-traditional living.   The process generated belief-learning and learners both canhappen anywhere, but I believe architecture can inspire, catalyze and be a conductor to the art of creation by exemplifying art through construction and experimentation. The site or every parcel of land comes with its own set of information as history/memories of either a time or people or any events. This information becomes the design driver depending upon how direct or indirect a relation it bears to the proposed project. I also reckon that architecture of such a place of learning needs to accommodate and present canvases and flexible work platforms to maintain a influx of ideas. These missing parts, the intentionally undersigned or other half spaces can experience creation, for every construction starts with destruction.

Re-energizing waterscapes : architecture in an Urban Context


RELATIONAL DESIGN one that does not stand in isolation to the site, the (urban) setting at all stages the program What & Why site selection  Where & Why concept and design How & Why  T he whys here are derivatives of what the site/ neighborhood/city tells


Evolution on the lines of Water These maps that trace the evolution of the city of Vadodara, from th phase when it was a fortified city show how the first foundation and even the expansions were either in parallel to the existing talabs or to include them in the city area. The interconnections of these ponds evident from the older maps are evident of how the morphology of the city at that time was derived through these water bodies and how important was the role of ‘water’ in the city’s character

|evolution of the old city|

inference

the area lying partly in the old city has largely, residential and public buildings, with a composition of varying grain size of buildings. a dense, organic and minute grain size on the western(old city) section of the study area and more regularized and bigger footprints as we move towards the east to newer developments.

building heights

rainwater flow + Olfactory experience

the Rajiv Awaas Yojana housing - G+4, convenient to get more people stuffed onto a smaller footprint but cutting off the newer developments from the natural featue - the pond

a big traffic island existed near the pond and one of the busiest nodes of the setting, and turned into a scrub land where cattle would rest and stay The parts of the open drain as remains of the man made yet ecologically respectful water connection that prevailed

The sewage odor and the open rainwater drains and channels helped understand the older water connections that existed between the ponds and water bodies of the once fortified city the older houses, in the denser zone with uncommon and increased building heights to accomodate for expansions and new requirements

inference

the setting is composed of a uniformly high buildings but the dynamic experience of the volumetric is experienced when the character of the streets changes with road widths, and also how each of these vertical volumes - streets and galis - open up into small sqaures/chowks and to more larger horizontal views around the talab/pond

the odour and garbage around the pond revealed how the edges of the pond that were left to people made the pond and the area around into a wasteland and the one edge which had a buffer zone(a park) from human activity was comparatively cleaner and in its natural state

inference

How the pond catches the diverted water from all areas around it, except where it has been obstructed due to developmental activities but water still finds its way home The mapping of the olfactory experience helped decipher the problem areas related to cleanliness and also the unavailability of toilets or garbage disposal.

circulation & noise mapping the movement towards east being highest during day time and more during weekend because of the main bazaar of the city

high noise in the rajiv awaas yojana quarters because of high density of people and a lot of noise producing make do mechanical jobs happening in the open spaces

cultural nodes the debate over the name of the pond Mohammad/mahadev gives a stronger idea of the multi-religious fabric of the area

high noise levels around the narrower roads because of vehicular movement and the use of street as a space for play and other activities creating incoherent functional overlaps many public s p a c e s created and self formed around the talab

the north south Gade I road connecting to the pond cente and as the threshold of the old and the relatively newer city

largely cultural activities located around street corners km

two edges of the talab experienced heavy traffic during most part of the day, with two very important traffic and pedestrian junctions. The larger movement is from East to West on Grade I and Grade II roads, moving to and fro between the old city core(East) and the newer parts(on the West)

inference

the high noise zones in built areas were largely result of density of people and vehicles and some functionally uncomplimentary activities happening along roads. On the opposite was the area around the talab where even with large no. of vehicles and hawkers noise levels were tolerable and a part of the serene experiential quality

pedestrian concentration Chaotic Nodes Grade I - heaviest traffic Grade II - heavy traffic Grade III - light traffic Grade IV - sparse traffic

recreational gathering spots religious spots (temples +mosques) community functions & gathering spaces (wadi, burial ground etc.)

anganwadi

km

recreational peak temple visiing activities

inference

The existing cultural and public activity nodes, and the durations of a day they are used for convey a possibility of complimentary (time based) clubbing of functions. Could these help reduce building footprints and make more relevance in neighbourhood level designs
