This studio investigates the relationship between structure and material as a primary basis in the making of architecture. It prepares students to develop design abilities in which the search for systems of space becomes intrinsic to the search for systems of structure. The studio assumes that structure is abstract and diagrammatic and therefore it unfolds immense possibilities for diverse and numerous forms that make students conscious about detailing in architecture. In this light, material is merely temporal and one material can be replaced by another in the same structural system. The realization of form that is perceptible is eventually realized through the organization of material in space. This organization of material in space creates two sets of spaces; one that is around the organized material and the other that the material itself occupies. This semester students shall predominantly deal and detail out the latter as an outcome of principles of form deriving. The students shall be able to produce models and prototypes highlighting structural and constructional aspects of their design as well as produce a set of technical drawings for execution. I wish to acknowledge and thank all my students who have worked sincerely to engage with the challenges of the studio. As extraordinary times demand extraordinary efforts; the students have risen to this occasion to demonstrate their persistent efforts fructified in the form of models, prototypes and drawings. I am extremely grateful to Baidehi, Sajanish, Aashvi, Dhrumin, and Aditi Deepak, Naomi and Snehil for undertaking the preparation and compilation of the studio booklet and presentation. I am also happy to have witnessed efforts by Deepak, Naomi, Snehil, Yukta, Raj, Ishaan and Jay. The studio would have never been complete without the support of my co-tutor Neel Jain. I express my gratitude to workshop technicians namely Yatinbhai, Chiragbhai and Chaggan Bhai for their support to train students in making. I also wish to thank Leeza and Chandani for their persistent efforts to work with the students to improve the quality of representation. I hope the deeper meaning of the methods employed in this studio will support students’ future journey and provide sustained food for thoughts in architecture.

A C K N O W L E D G M E N T We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to Professor Sankalpa and Teaching Associate Neel Jain for organising and managing a studio which in hesitant and unsettling times like these taught us to observe, pushed us to adapt and encouraged us to overcome difficulties in the practical world. Each exercise picked up something from the previous one and in the end the learning culminated and assembled as a design project. Extensive hands on work and multiple model making exercises introduced precise pragmatic discussions which included real-life materials and applications, all of this which would not have been possible without the Workshop Team. We would like to thank Yatin Bhai, Chirag Bhai and Chagan Bhai for their one-on-one discussions and assistance in the model making process. We would like to thank Aditya Patel and Krunal Patel for the intermediate discussions that have helped us in looking at our ideas from the mid semester and guiding us on how to take them forward. We would like to thank Chandani Patel and Leeza John for the intense efforts they have put in the discussions to make our output for the semester more easily communicable and visually powerful. We would also like to thank our semester end jurors Pratyush Shankar, Uday Andhare, Wesley Thompson, Manu Narendran, Surya Kakani, Faizan Khatri, Leandro Poco and Freyaan Anklesaria for providing such insightful discussions that have helped us in have a reflecting at the work done in the course of this semester. These ideas will be of great importance during our journey as professionals. Lastly, the seamless switching between offline and online mediums wouldn’t have been possible without the continuous efforts that the developers at Google, Zoom and Miro have been making during these uncertain times.

The studio focuses on four important aspects of dealing with questions of tectonics in architecture and more specifically the question of building language. Firstly, building up the ability to visualize structural force. Secondly, building up the ability to apply the form of materials onto the force diagram. Thirdly, the ability to construct an expressive detail for space and lastly, the ability to draw in a way that can be referred to as a construction drawing as well as communicate the qualities of spaces. Pedagogical attempt to assess how a small detail expresses when one scales up was critically investigated. The final workshop project became a testing ground to employ the bottom-up approach to accommodate the structural systems along with details to achieve a building language. The aim was to express space as an articulation of details as well as expressing program and form as a seamless relationship of space and structure. Learning Outcomes of Studio: 1. To generate structural systems in design for space modulation. 2. To design a detail communicating informed meaning. 3. To choose material appropriate for a given design task. 4. To make informed choices about the type of drawing for making. 5. To produce a set of technical drawings and specifications appropriate for site execution.

SELECTION AND REJECTION

After developing iterations, based on the potential of the module in terms of spanning and material usage, a module was taken forward.

REPETITION

The module was repeated to span the given length for a test model.

TESTING THE MODULE Tested the component by placing the component in horizontal direction (cantilever), simply supported or hanging condition and saw which was the best suitable condition for overall as well as part to take load efficiently when a load was applied on it once it was part of the system.

MODIFICATIONS Changes were made depending on the result of the testing like changes in orientation, usage and amount of material, form of the module etc.

MATERIALS The materials were chosen based on the requirements of the system and then detailed out.

FINAL MODEL A 1:10 scale full span model was made to further understand the behavior of the system. A 1:5 scale model of the module was made to understand the detailing.

The question of making has remained central to the question of using labour as a way to express the creative component of a society. It is necessary to practise it, as it uses the physical body in various ways to produce artifacts of exceptional quality to fulfill the demand and imagination of the very society it serves. The design schools remain at the forefront of such endeavor; to probe, transfer and sustain this very need. In order to ensure this intention; CEPT University has taken up an initiative (CEPT - Stock) to set up a workshop that allows the interaction of students and artisans to train young artisans to produce high-quality work in collaboration with designers. Project CEPT - Stock is imagined with three clear objective •

To expose design students to produce artifacts while meeting the quality standard of the profession.

To train young artisans on a collaborative platform with designers for expanding the creative collaboration between imagination and skills.

To create opportunities for young designers and artisans to test ideas that have the potential to be implemented for the needs of the society.

The project includes four types of workshop spaces, Model Making, Timber, Bamboo and Ceramics with spaces for material storage and display of the output. It also includes a shop for selling the products made in the workshops along with other utilities.

M A R K E T S T U D Y A N D W O R K S H O P After developing a basic sense of mechanism in the first detailing exercise, the next step was to find out the parts that would be required in the making of it. The dimensions and material of the parts played an important role in designing any detail and market study helped in exploring. Along with that, it also looked at the finish a specific part would give, for example, would it be flushed or would it protrude out of a surface and what that part could be replaced with to achieve the desired finish. The market study also looked at customizing, due to lack of availability in desired sizes and finally, the cost of the entire model. Followed by the market study was the making of the model in the workshop. The hands on experience developed a sensitivity towards the material and various techniques to work with them. The process involved from trying to do accurate markings with regard to the machine and equipment tolerances to learning from the error to achieve the desired output.

The site visit was a residential project under construction and the main discussion was about the parity between the architect’s toilet drawings and how they are brought in during the construction. The plumbing engineer and the contractor explained each and every step of sequence from marking to laying down the pipes and how various fixtures have various requirements that as an architect one must take care of. The methods of laying tiles and plaster were also discussed and how they affect the measurements of the fixing point of the fixtures as provided in the drawings. We, would like to extend our gratitude to the on-site contractor, Mr. Ronak Bhatt who took the time from his busy schedule to show us around and patiently answered all our queries.

26


R E P R E S E N T A T I O N The key focus of the workshop was to effectively communicate the ideas of the design and detail in an efficient and visually effective manner. In the two weeks before the jury, the students worked intensively with Chandani and Leeza, discussing from sampling various styles of rendering to the final output, and how highlighting certain nuances in a drawing helps the ideas come out better.

AASHVI TRIVEDI ‘The sequence of the exercises in the studio was such that it focused on bringing together various elements in a program wherein each element - pre-designed and pre-structured - comes together to bind the project together in terms of materials and expression. Each exercised emphasised on understanding the forces acting on the object through physical models and then applying stabilising structures to counter those forces. In depth understanding was laid on materials and how they come together. Not only that, the exercises helped me experience first hand the process and sequence of construction and its application in real life.’

ADITI SHAH ‘This studio has a very different approach towards design and structure as a whole. The process followed here was to develop the whole from a unit. We started with development of a detail, then incorporating that detail into a system and later introducing the system into a space by giving it materiality and spatial qualities. This process was achieved by producing a number of working models for the evolution of the system to understand the behaviour of it. Thus this process of the studio made me realise a new process of designing along with a method to implement it in real life.’

MODELLING OPENINGS

DETERMINING THE POSITION OF THE PIVOT When the pivot was positioned in the centre of the 2 folds of the door, it was observed that it only allowed the door to be opened till an angle less than 90o (which was the desired extent).

Pivot at the center

Hence, the door was width was divided into 3 equal widths and the pivot was positioned at the 1/3

rd

position.

This allowed the door to be opened completely at 900, . The change in the position of the pivot allowed a portion of the door to be opened inwards as a contrast to mass produced bi-fold doors

Pivot at the 1/3rd part of the door

D E TER M I N I N G T HE W EAV I N G PAT T ER N It was observed that a overlap of thin paper strips (weaved together) helped to stabilise the piece of 240 x 210 mm paper. Furthermore, 2 different patterns of weaving were experimented

MODELLING CANTILEVER STABILISING THE TREAD A paper strip was inserted along the horizontal axis and the vertical axis to stabilise the tread. It was observed that both the axes needed to be stabilised at the same time, hence an H-shaped paper reinforcement was used, which significantly improved the structural strength of the tread as compared to the previous iterations.

Process Paper Models : To stabilise the Tread

OBSERVING THE SUSPENSION DETAIL The MDF model allowed to observe whether the proposed suspension detail (using MS rods bolted to the steel frame of the treads) would allow the staircase to be stable once suspended.

THE SYMBOL Used as a starting reference, the symbol was to be replicated or

Process Models : Type A

abstracted in a way that it was readable when a section was cut across the span along any axes.

THE PROCESS MODULES Initial models of individual modules made out of paper and reed sticks (TYPE A), interpreted the symbol quite literally and in that process failed to collectively form a stable system. The

next

set

of

models,

first

experimented with plastic straws (TYPE B) used the concept of triangulation to make the system stronger. Several patterns were tried out by overlapping triangles of similar sizes. The absence of mass in the centre of the triangles for the next set of models, made out of MDF ( TYPE C) was counteracted by adding a vertical member in between held together using threads. This allowed for a stable system and also allowed the possibility of repetition of modules.

Process Models : Type B and Type C

99


Repeating the modules to form the 400 mm span, led to the problem of an unresolved end condition, where the irregular geometric edge of the module didn’t really help to have a uniform end condition.

Latest Model of the Module : Axonometric View Adding the notion of materiality to the existing module, the latest module emerged as a composite member of timber and tension cables. Vertical and horizontal Members were overlapped where the thicker horizontal member acted as a compression member. In order to significantly reduce mass, from the previous module, the members were made slim and elongated along their respective axis. The individual members were held together using tension cables, the bracing allowing the triangulation to exist along the YZ Plane and the XZ Plane.

DETAIL 3 : The lengthening Connectors used to connect the CLT members - metal connectors bolted from both sides.


Latest Model of the 1100 mm Span : Elevation In order to further strengthen the ends and to also reduce mass and make the system lightweight, the size of the vertical members were varied across the span, making them maximum at the ends and minimum in the centre. This allowed the system to have an arched profile both on top and the bottom. The vertical members for the span for the ground floor ( in order to accommodate the first floor on top) was modified such that the arched profile existed only at the bottom and provided a uniform profile on top.

ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT: CEPT STOCK

CEPT STOCK is a proposal for an artisans workshop adjacent to the university premises in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The proposal explores the concept of dividing the space based on functionality and user accessibility - where the built forms are segregated by smaller courts that help to maintain the circulation along the east-west axis of the building. The absence of a lot of internal partition walls except the 2 heavy rammed earth walls along the E-W axis accentuates the linearity of the space and also promotes the idea of a co-working space.

BAIDEHI REJ ‘The past 16 weeks were tough and rigorous. I stepped into unchartered water; dealt with ideas of materials, construction and structures that I didn’t have sufficient knowledge about and in the process I learned a lot. What was interesting was how the studio functioned opposite to a conventional design process. It was extremely valuable to experience this format as it allowed us unhindered experimentation with the separate design elements and then proposed to us the challenge of incorporating those in our final project. It would be a lie if i were to say that I didn’t struggle and there weren’t moments when I fell stuck but what I realized through the entire journey is that the smaller details helped me develop a larger architectural language for my project. The whole experiments with process models, working and reworking on our failures have helped me develop a much more clarified understanding of structural behavior which I plan to improve upon in the future. Looking back at where I started and now at the point of conclusion of the studio, I feel like have stepped out of my comfort zone and challenged myself to try new things, even though there are things I’d like to change or rework upon more. I’d like to thank the workshop technicians Yatin Bhai and Chirag Bhai, and my TA Neel Jain for their guidance and knowledge throughout the studio. Finally, I’d like to thank Prof. Sankalpa for providing the opportunity to attend this studio, for sharing his invaluable knowledge with all of us and for his immense patience with me for the past 16 weeks. ‘

D E E PA K V A R M A N A D I M PA L L I ‘Detailing gives character to a space. It has always been my obsession to detail anything that I design. In all the semesters that I have previously done, I couldn’t give time to detailing, which left me with a little dissatisfaction. This semester started with detailing. I have discovered new ways in which I could detail out something. The process made me aware of different forces that should be considered while detailing a structure. I have understood the limitations and the capabilities of materials, which helped me choose suitable materials. Studying market available materials and articulating new details with them, boosted my confidence that I could detail something and it could be executed. I always doubted myself if I could execute anything that I designed. The studio helped me overcome that fear and taught me to stick to the process. ‘

MODELLING OPENINGS

Continuing

the

idea

of

the

previous exercise, a door with multiple leaves was designed that opens in a similar fashion but doesn’t have a sliding action. This meant the leaf of the door had to be stabilized vertically to avoid torsion. After studying behaviors of various forms, the Y shape proved most effective. The main intent of the door was for it to function more as a screen than a solid enclosure and thus Bamboo and Steel and varied sizes of pulleys were used such that the door opens in an arc.

MODELLING CANTILEVER

The beginning point of staircase was the condition that it is suspended from a beam and is cantilevering on the other side. For the idea of using Bamboo and Steel in a staircase steel was used as the main structural member. A similar Y was used but now it was folded out of plane to give extra strength. On it hollow bamboo was inserted to take care of the lateral strength. But because of the jumping action in bamboo, which makes it unsuitable to walk upon, an sheet of plywood was bolted to act as infill. One

end

of

the

tread

was

suspended from the beam using cables, whereas the other end was pinned into the wall to avoid torsion while climbing the stair.

ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT: CEPT STOCK

The site was opposite the CEPT gate such that the South side faced the main road that had small food stalls. The process began with designing bearing member for the spanning system, which were concrete beams that took care of the fixing junctions of the span whose depth varied. These beams rested on columns at every 10 meters, and the building was enclosed by Rammed Earth walls that acted as infill but also gave lateral stability to the concrete columns.

161


First, a series of columns were designed to hold the arched beams at every 10 meters to hold the spanning system

Between the strict grid, diagonal walls were made to create a pause point for for entrance in the East and this was repeated to make semi open space between the two workshops

The concrete arches were then countered with making arches in rammed earth to create eye like openings that bring in light and ventilation and make the entire system look as if it is floating

D H R U M I N PAT E L ‘Looking back to all the exercises in the studio, they were sequenced in a way that they helped in asking in depth about what and how, the context was a detail, and how one could work using that. The aspect of this studio I really enjoyed was the fact that everything didn’t have to be drastically different and how one exercise could build upon the next. This not only helped me look at the idea of material and detailing but also that of sequence of construction and how they come together to create an expression. ‘

ISHAAN MAHAJAN ‘In this studio, approach to designing starts with getting into the detail right away. Getting into making of a latch

detail helped me understand how a detail would actually be made and therefore the way to go about detailing anything in the right and efficient manner. The making of the models was very taxing, but enjoyable and a very important part of the studio to understand the various forces and how to deal with them. Creating large span systems by evolving a diagram through many trial and errors was a challenging task, but was necessary to understand the transfer of forces to create stable systems using appropriate and efficient materials. Designing a space using already detailed out elements to create comfortable functional spaces was a unique way to go about the process. The studio helps in grasping knowledge of materials, the application of forces, and using them to create and follow a particular architectural language.’

During that workshop exercise, I realised the importance of market study and worked with materials which helped me to understand the material properly. Paper model experiments helped me to understand the forces. Modeling experiments to develop spanning system helped to understand forces and made easier to apply bodily gained knowledge. During the studio we went from part to whole. In the end we used all the details and changed them in order to all come together to create project as a whole.

ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT: CEPT STOCK The proposal explores the concept of continuous spaces and volumes within a larger built form. The idea of creating multiple mezzanine levels that overlook one another and the larger space at all times, stimulates interaction and learning between

various

artisans

and

students

working in the workshop. Different volumes allow one to experience the spanning system from different levels. The explored spanning system provided the opportunity of creating a singular continuous vault along the E-W axis which accentuates the linearity of the built form allowing one to experience a visual and

N A O M I M E H TA ‘The studio process involves constant engagement of one’s physical and mental spirit with the work at hand. The making of different scales of models with different materials helped me gain a bodily memory of working with them while also being able to analyse and identify various advantages and disadvantages, failures and errors in the structural system and other exercises that were explored. The modelling experiments helped me test my notions of different forces and mechanisms and understand and learn from the failures. The extensive approach to detailing at every scale made me aware of the intricate process that various agencies undertake in the process of construction. I gained a new perspective of perceiving and designing details that allowed me to attempt at integrating them with larger architectural concepts. The discipline and experience of the journey altogether was greater than just the output.’

RAJ KANSARA ‘After completing the semester i definitely come one step closer to understand my architectural style. I understood that how the architect is connected with different agent, after so many negotiations between paper drawing to construction site. Realise that making neat drawing is first part but think through thing like what are available size in market, how two different material connect with each other, making such detail that any craftsmen can make it with ease step by step construction from workshop to site.’

R E PA L L E S A J A N I S H ‘Detailing has been an essential step in this studio’s process. Working out details on paper in some exercises and getting to try them out with their materials in others has been a very beneficial process mainly in terms of reality of construction sequence. To be able to produce technically correct workshop/technical drawings that are legible and not being overdone(required information) has been a constant learning throughout the course. Model making with various materials involves experimenting and understanding the forces and its working principles. In a series of iterations of models it become easy to deal and proceed forward. Designing spanning system and its evolution through trial and errors has been a challenging task, at the same time was important to understand how the system failed in terms of forces imbalance or overdoing by adding unnecessary mass. This process made it clear to have as less components as possible no matter how complicated the system is. Designing a functional space with existing details and following a similar language has also been a demanding task. Overall, the studio focuses on the process of detailing through hints of construction sequence, application and limitations of materials in a given situation, correctness and legibility of technical drawings & to produce quality rendered architectural drawings.’

MODELLING OPENINGS The intent was to design a suspended sliding door. The stabilisation of the leaf started with the concept of removing material where deemed unnecessary. 1. After understanding the behaviour of notches and holes, the edges of the module was stabilised. 2. The top half of the suspended door requires more strength, hence a grid of strips were added to provide thickness and stability. 3. The bottom half of the paper was stabilised using lesser material at the bottom since gravity pulls the bottom part more. Triangulation is done to resist torsion and folding.

ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT: CEPT STOCK

The project is an attempt to synthesis all the diverse architectural systems and manifest them into an architectural domain. The workshop attempts to provide each of these systems a unique space wherein users can experience the systems in a certain rhythm. The material chosen for the construction of the building is rammed earth. While rammed earth is used for load-bearing at the bottom with a timber frame system on the floor above to lighten the building both visually and literally at the top.

One can start from a piece of paper and gain a bodily understanding of forces to develop a live scale structure. Through such a process, one can create structure that contributes to space, and vice-versa.’

The staircase was designed, once again by stabilising a piece of paper. Similar to the stabilization of the door, a single tread was stabilised by adding material to the plane, as seen in modules 3 and 4, before finally arriving at the articulation of module 5. A key condition of the staircase was that it should be cantilevering on a single stringer placed off center. The staircase itself is stabilised by a metal framework, held together by MS plates, acting as spacers. The tread is of stone, with metal box sections forming the railing.

YU K TA R A ‘If the past 16 weeks in the studio have taught me anything, it is that it’s not impossible to step out of your comfort zone, and try something new. In fact, it opened up avenues I had never even considered before. Over the course of the studio, I found myself becoming more and more grounded, and began to realise not just the practicality of detailing, but also the feasibility of the structures we design. I believe that I now see things with a more realistic view, which comes only from breaking every single element that we design into its most simple components. Looking back now, there is much more I wish I could have done, much that I wish I could have done differently, a great many things I realise a little too late that I could have done. However, I also realise what I have learned and what I have gained; the art of patience, how to deal with the frustration of not being able to figure something out, the beauty in something as seemingly inconsequential as a nut and bolt, but most importantly, the importance of every single step and the value it plays in all further decisions. Yes, there are things that I would like a chance to change, but at the same time, I will take what I have learned, over this semester, and carry it forward as one of my greatest teaching moments.’ -YUKTA R A
