HOUSING STUDIO

For Middle Income Group Malav Talav, Vasna

Housing for one generation, two generation and three generation families was to be done by following all land laws and calculating number of dwellings through permissible built-up area. Intend of the design was to design incremental housing and making community spaces in between clusters. Understanding of minimum space requirement for a living and designing on the basis of calculations and resolving basic services was the main focus of the studio. Dwellings were arranged in such a way that each house gets some extra space to expand. These spaces were in the form of terrace or left over double volumns where the house above it can built up in near future.

MATERIAL AND LIGHT STUDIO

Crematorium Rancharda Village

This studio aims on the exploration of the material and how light enters into a space. The program was to design a Crematorium in Rancharda, Ahmedabad with twocremation spaces and other necessary functions needed in the Crematorium. To express light, darkness, experience, journey and feeling of the people, rammed earth as primary and bamboo as secondary material was taken. Idea behind making rammed earth walls was that, each bands of the material would create a gesture of path, journey and life of the spirits. While bamboo was used to design Pavilions in such a way, that it would create a gesture of respect to the dead where people would wait for the cremation to finish.

Folding Plate Door

Paper Door IAAC, Barcelona

In a collaborative studio with IAAC, Barcelona, a door was designed for Green FabLab Valldaura. Initially, groups were made to work on different ideas and designs that further went on solving door mechanism and working hands-on in Fablab. Idea was to design a foldable door which would fold in one direction. Initially it started with understanding how folds behaves with direction and how folds can be generated to execute it in a different material.

Folding Plate Door

Folding Plate Door IAAC, Barcelona

Out of all design groups, one of the designs was selected and was to be worked further. All the groups were reoriented to resolve the design, work on mechanism, detail, and choreography of the door. Design idea of the door was that, each door panel would act as an individual member which would move in series to create a choreography and opens ups to take the form of arch. Out of twelve timber panels, three working panels were made in 1:1 scale in Green Fablab, Valldaura.

In these exercises, taking one module -evolving it, by repeating - thinking it, by rhythm - creating it, by imaginingwere evolved making it generative designs.

MANUAL SKILLS

Indology, Ahmedabad Neembaadi, Sanand

Manual skills focuses on hands-on skills, sketching, model making and hand rendering skills. This excercise aims on pace measuring Indology, Ahmedabad and making rendered drawings with pencil color. A model was also made of the same.

14


This was a pre-studio exercise of Material and Light studio where we had done a case study on Neembaadi, Sanand and made a 1:10 scale model with actual materials. It mainly focused on sequence of construction, techniques of building with Rammed earth, and exploring different compositions in the same material.

EARTH BUILDING TECHNIQUES

Restoring Kasbah Gate Olad Edriss, Morocco

In a collaborative workshop with Terrachidia Association, a workshop on Traditional earth building techniques was held in Olad Edriss Oasis, Morocco. Building with rammed earth, sun dried bricks, mud plaster and mud slab was understood by hand-on practice. A documentation of one of the oldest Daar house in village was also done to understand scale, proportion, light, typology and form of the traditional houses in Morocco.

ART DECO

Documenting Art deco Ahmedabad

Art deco is a major movement in decorative arts and architecture that originated in the 1920s in Western Europe and The United States. The British Colonial era of Ahmedabad also witnessed several buildings with similar decorative and art styles. In the following workshop, one of the art deco houses in Ahmedabad was documented in a group on two. Documentation in terms of photographs, drawings and timber model was done to understand, ornamentation, scale, proportion, detail, form and art in a bulding.
