THE TELEBATTI Answer your aesthetic calling

- The chasis of the telephone is made of an antique telephone.

BRIEF A twisted take on antique telephones ‘The Telebatti’ is a table lamp inspired by the word ‘Jugaad’. This vintage telephone peice holds great emotional value in the hearts of people. Re-interpreting it not only meant upcycling it but aslo held a great aesthetic value as a standalone light design.

- The microphpone and speakerphone is replaced by two bulbs of 6w and 4w(off white colour) - The bulbs have been stripped of thier original bodies such that the could per ectl t inside the telphone. - The two bulbs are connected in paralell which makes them glow at the same brightness. - The wires of the circuit are passedthrough the telephone handle into the body after which the main wires directly connects to the electrical

06 SUSTAINABLE POTTERY STUDIO

ASPECT OF SUSTAINABILITY ORGANIC DURABLE ARCHITECTURE

LOCATION Saral Village, Alibaug SITE PHOTOGRAPHS

SITE PHOTOGRAPHS

A Learning Centre in Saral village, Alibaug

CONTEXT NOTE

BRIEF A plot of plan in Alibaug requires a sustainable learning studio to be built in an area of 100 square metre. Taking into consideration the contextual entities, that is, the gabion sit out, the tree, and a brick house design a sustainable studio for the chosen user group.

In a world full of momentary commodities anything that is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;built to lastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is sustainable. Anything so integrated with nature, that it dissolves when taken down can be termed as sustainable. Present day materials create junk and cook up the planet. A built structure around us may be durable but if the materials used in the making are non-biodegradable it will create a hazardous remains for the earth. Thus, a strong natural material such that if it destroys, it can biodegrade itself without leaving any harmful residues is my idea of sustainability. We need to rediscover concepts like durability and repairability. The construction industry is one of the biggest threats on our environment. The less we need to renovate and rebuild, the better. One must wake up from the self induced coma of negligence and strive to prolong the durability of the built environment for the sake of nature

18 kms north, along the coast of Alibaug, beyond an open expanse of hot, dry land lies the most sustainable community of the sea-side town. Swathed in shrubs and vegetation, Saral village is home to an organic pottery studio owned by a local potter. Beside the studio is a gabion sit out shadowed by large trees that also extend their shelter to the studio. A small brick house sits a few metres from the sit out. The South Westerlies that blow over the region bring monsoon from June to September and at other times envelop the area with hot, humid air . In contrast, the dampness of clay in the enclosures of the studio is refreshing. The artist ruminates and creates here- steering the wheel into a the gentle rhythm of creation, its hum the only sound.


USER GROUP My idea of sustainability is anything that is so integrated with nature that it dissolves in it when taken down. Something that emerges from where it is born without harming the earth is my idea of sustainability. I chose a potter as my user since he closely works with organic materials to build objects without having any negative impact of the earth. ANALYSIS OF THE USER GROUP Type of system : Private and public (Predominantly a potters studio but it will eventually be open to people to come and buy so becomes a retail stage) User : Potter Program of the space : Pot making Function (diff spaces within program) : Slurrying wedging throwing modelling glazing kilning retailing

POTTERY STUDIO User : Potter Activity : Pottery - making Range of Terracotta pots Type : Free standing studio Production: 50 per day

SLURRY SPACE : Open to the surroundings yet sheltered from the sunlight.

THROWING : - I took tree as the focal point of my design and decided to place the pottery wheels under the tree. - Kept The throwing space sky lit To create a sense of openness in a closed space and to create a proximity with nature. a ted the heels to be the rst sight or the user because the whole drama of modelling with ones hands is so soothing to watch.

ORIENTATION : In a way that the smoke ro the il ďŹ&#x201A;o s i a direction opposite to that of the studio.

GLAZING TABLE : Near the wheels and adjacent to the storage space and kiln to make the circulation faster because throwing follows glazing and glazing follows kilning.

SHELTER : Extended shelter that shadows the gabion sit

OUT DOOR FIRING SPACE : he process o ri g re uires a il The kiln produces huge amounts of smoke and heat thus it has to be outdoors. In this studio the kiln is near the glazing table because thats ho the pot o es DISPLAY AT THE ENTRANCE : The entrance walkthrough has the ished pots his gi es a se se o the i d o acti it that ta es place in the studio right in the beginning LONG WEDGING TABLE : Placed near the wheels and the glazing table to make circulation easier.

PLANNING AND WHY

WALL DETAIL

ENTRANCE PLANT - WALL FACADE DETAIL : - The mud wall at the entrance required creepers so i decide to place the potters own pots i n the form of the wall and have plantations growing from it. These plants will overhang and cover the wall. - The potter can himself replace the pots in case of repair. - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s space between the wall and the roof to provide a passive cooling system. It allows both light and air to ďŹ&#x201A;o

07 THE REVAMP LAMP

CONCEPT Inspired by DIY crafts the ‘Revamp Lamp’ is made up of rods and connecting joineries. Here each rods serves as a unique entity as well as a whole when joined to the cube. The multi-functional element is bought in by inserting the rods in various angles. The angle of the joineries dictate the shape of the lamp. Hence one can use it in the form of a cube or any shape he wishes.

FULLY ASSEMBLED ACRYLIC ENTITY

A material constraining project aiming to incorporate joineries and its combinations in a 1’ X 1’ X 1’ Cube. The idea is to emphasise on structural connections mostly using available ways of making joints like additio subtractio de i g poi ts de i g li es or i o ati g o es o (Gluing prohibited)

08 MUSICAL RAILNG Railing with a purpose

BRIEF Design a railing with a material constraint of Stone and Non - ferrous Metals. The railing should be utilitarian and area speci c

CONCEPT An interactive railing that evokes livliness in a space. It initiates a casual mood and engages a passerby in a playful frisking action. The ‘Musical Railing’ tackles the usual habit of pedestria s brushi g gers agai st the street railing and channelises that action into producing sounds .

INSPIRATION Harp - It’s strings are made of gut (often replaced in the modern day by nylon) or metal.

ELEMENTS OF THE RAILING - Silk and steel strings : gauges 22 to 32 - Iron nails - Flexi ply : 3mm thick - Composite marble : Vertical posts , upper and lower slabs

COMPOSITE MARBLE Stone has acoustic properties so its used for reverberating sound. In the railing, composite marble is used to act as the echoing shell.

SILK & STEEL STRING - Used in an acoustic guitar - Softer feel than regular stainless steel. i ger rie dl i ge eral or both pic i g gers a d the retti g gers - Mellow sound than normal steel strings due primarily to the damping effect of the "silk" wrapping.
