1.1 spanning structure Element used : wire Aim : to construct a spanning structure homogenous in nature, Using the properties of the given material , with the help of certain operatives. We started by building a base component . Our base component was in the shape of 2 pyramids inverted and joint. We joint the components with thinner wire so our entire structure was homogenous. It was in the shape of an arch with its end bifurcated therefore the entire structure resembled a tripod providing more strength and stability. We also played with the density of the structure by altering the joinery at various places, some being closely packed whereas some being sparse making it lighter for better stability of the structure.
2.1 emergence source : stalactites and stalagmites
An experiment using baking soda and water jars was conducted to generate a growth pattern for artificial slacatite and stlagmite generation. the second stage involved obtaining a peice of furniture from the obtained inferences.

THE BUILT FORM OF A TYPICAL CHAWL IN KHETWADI APPEARS AS A SOLID BLOCK OF MASS FROM ITS EXTERIOR, BUT IN REALITY CONTAINS VARIOUS LAYERS SHOWING POROSITY AT DIFFERENT STAGES.AS ONE GOES INSIDE, VARIOUS KINDS OF OPENINGS OF DIFFERENT SIZES ADD TO THE POROSITY IN THE CHAWL. ELEMENTS LIKE CORRIDOORS, COURTAYRDS, OVERHEAD BRIDGES, NICHES ETC, ALL FORM A VERY STRONG CONNECTED MASS AND VOID SYSTEM, GIVING RISE TO MANY VISUAL CONNECTIONS BETWEEN SPACES.

4.1 juhu street market
the aim of this project was to create a market which would have the characteristics of a street. hence ramps were proposed and programs were distributed accordingly. the upper ramp would act like a street for retail on a small scale and the level below would act like a supermarket.
PLANS & SECTIONS
4.2 MASS HOUSING THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO COME UP WITH A MASS HOUSING SYSTEM WHICH WOULD INCORPORATE SEVERAL COMPLEMENTARY PROGRAMS AT THE GIVEN SITE. KEEPING THE METRO IN MIND THESE HOUSING UNITS HAVE BEEN DESIGNED AT THE PROPOSED SITEVERSOVA, MUMBAI IN THIS PROJECT, GROUND PLANES ARE CREATED AT VARIOUS LEVELS TO LINK THE ENTIRE SYSTEM TOGETHER.
