The main objective of the building was to create a monumental building which could become easily associated with judiciary power and at the same time which would remain people friendly. The original level of the plot was elevated approximately 1 metre serves as a basis for the new representative building. Five story Civil court building was designed as a three block with facades defined by a vertical rhythm of repeating columns.

Main entrance area was designed as a high corner porch leading to the main entrance. Within the block, two internal courtyards at two different level accesible from the minor road parking lot at the back of the building were provided. A functional arrangement of the court main building corresponds with a security division into zones with varying access levels.
Rooms dedicated to public use such as courtrooms, filing counter, registers were designed as accessible from the open 4 story high main lobby, is also the main circulation space. Office and administrative rooms, covered by an access control system, were designed as connected with main lobby accessible only by an employees.

My startpoint was the cultural division of the society which had been reflected geographically. I have considered the fact of division of the land and thus started by allocating three parts of the site into three different functions namely Cultural, Commercial and Cultural. I have taken a central spine for visual connectivity thus providing an idea of what is happening over a spread. I intentionally pushed the educational block activities towards back so that they would be free from hustles and bustles of the everyday routine. A connectivity is provided between education zone and the artist to have an easy access to the cafe during their clock in and out. Cultural and commercial hub are placed on either side of the main road for the tourist to seek an attraction.
CULTURAL CENTRE | 14
Cultural hub comprises of art gallery and an auditorium. The platform on cultural hub has been raised purposefully so as to provide an attraction to the other side which also includes the visual connectivity. The raised platform do have a series of steps. A part outwards thys providing shade underneath. This would be well acclaimed by the localites who could rest during their wait for the public services. The central space created inbetween the educational and commercial hub can be used as a gathering space which inturn also provides the ideal space for bigtime events also provided with a new age seating or resting space on the slopping terrace.

FULL SCALE WORKSHOP PROJECT TYPE : Workshop LOCATION : CMR campus The main idea of the workshop was to experiment a new material and to get used to its properties. This is a part of our semester activities where we all work together in 1:1 scale. The technique which we explored was the cob. The intent is to make a seating under two trees.

FULLSCALE WORKSHOP | 32
COB TECHNIQUE The form is irregular s shaped which is obtained by the following the two trees. The seating has un uniform undelations so that they can lean on and take rest unlike other contemporary seatings. The main motive of this seating space was to create a resting place for the drivers who waits in the parking lot all the day.

SHIGERU BAN Shigeru Ban is a Japanese architect, known for his innovative work with paper, particularly recycled cardboard tubes used to quickly and efficiently house disaster victims.
LIBRARY OF A POET This library was built as an annex to a house I had previously expanded previously expanded and improved. The project was influenced by the Odawara Pavilion, which the owner had seen. He felt that a paper library would be best suited to house paper books. A variation of the paper tube truss used in the East Gate at Odawara was used here. The tubes used in the library were 100mm in diameter and 12mm thick, slightly smaller than those used at Odawara, but similarly, post-tensioned steel wires were used for the spanning sections. Where steel angles were used to form the joints at Odawara, 38 square mm timber pieces were employed for the library. The four floor to ceiling bookshelves along the sides of the room are structurally independent of the paper tubes and are cantilevered off the floor, absorbing the horizontal load. The bookshelves, which contain insulating material and have an exterior finish, were fabricated separately at a factory.
This workshop focused on trying to replicate the master detail of a renowned architect for which we have chose Shigeru Ban who â€˜s work is predominantly only with paper. The project had us divided into groups of four. The usage of similar joints in the different parts of the structure was very fascinating. A broad view of the interior shows the elevated block that houses a desk, allowing the owner to sit, in some sense, amidst his book.

The detail we explored is corner joint. The paper tubes we used were also same as 100mm in diameter and 12 mm thick post tensioned steel wires used for the spanning sections and then 38mm square timbers were employed. Then with the information and sketches we created a 3D model in rhinoceros and later we went on to replicate it in 1:1 scale.

PHOTOGRAPHY Photography for me is one of the best way to capture the beauty around us. It breaks routine, makes ordinary things extraordinary by creating different perspective of looking at things. Picture can be a beginning of a story or a dream and it helps me in expressing things in different language. Also being a travelling enthusiast it helps me in exploring different places, culture, typologies throught the photography. Here is a collection of photography from my architecture student life. The places includes Rajasthan. Bangalore, Cochin. https://www.instagram.com/nawin_stagram/
