â€œFunction follows formâ€œ - A combination or pattern can be made using the initials of names which can then be evolved to get a form that can incorporate a particular function depending on the need of the surrounding or the type of the form. A creative form or insignia need to be generated from the initials. Then a combination of that insignia would result in a pattern. The pattern is then to be modified to generate the form of a building. Bhauri being an educational hub and a small village with a very few residents, looks for a building typology that can include both the students of the educational institutes as the children in the village.

Interpretation centers are institution for dissemination of knowledge and often associated with cultural, historic or natural sites. Unlike traditional museums, interpretation centres do not usually aim to collect, conserve and study objects; they are specialized institutions for communicating the significance and meaning of the aimed site. They work to educate and raise awareness. They are designed as a building or group of buildings that provides interpretation of the place of interest. To aid and stimulate the discovery process and the visitorâ€™s intellectualand emotional connection to the site, the main presentation strategy tends to be user-friendly and interactive, through a variety of media, such as video displays and exhibitions of material. It includes exhibition halls (permanent and temporary), space for audio visual exhibition/display/shows, information center, lecture halls, auditorium, administration area, and facilities such as refreshment and gift shops.

unbox international competition competiton | 2018
To exploring disruptive design ideas using shipping containers that will transform the future of public spaces and design solutions that challenge the existing use of containers in an innovative way, promoting sustainability and invention. The designed solution should strike a dialogue with its surroundings. The containers themselves should be designed to become disruptive and the solutions crafted should be adaptable to the changing demographical dynamics of the site. The design should also respond to the site context selected. The design model can be prototype that can be replicated at other locations. The designed space has to be sustainable in nature and should cater to the public domain. The participants are to challenge the way the containers are used presently and create inventive solutions that are used for public utility.

Can we imagine a world without digital communication? Communication has evolved throughout the time, from body language to online messages. The dominant method to interact these days is through technology. We have expanded our range of communicating, but have we forgotten the physicality? How is communication perceived nowadays? What is the role of physical interaction in this digital reality? In an era of time - space compression, over-information and social networks, has communication lost its spatial aspects? How can architecture generate interaction? The challenge is to design an ideal room for communication. A physical space in a world where interactions have become intangible. Through your design, you are expressing how architecture can initiate communication.

Interior design does not restrict itself to only creating spaces within a single level rather spaces can be created by playing with the levels with the same volume of a particular box.

â€œAll rooms ought to look as if they were lived in, and to have so to say, a friendly welcome ready for the incomer.â€? -William Morris
Interior Designing is a major part of architecture. Besides the technical aspects, the aesthetics inside a building also matters. It talks both of the context, the surrounding environment of a building and the taste of the building owner.
Architectural Journalism can be divided into a mojor number of subparts like design interpretation, perceptional thinking, creative writing, paper writing, documentation in terms of photography, exploration, beginning research and finally, a research paper. Besides appreciating an architecture, one learns to critize and bring out the drawbacks. One comes to know the actual experience the building provides the users.
