BRIEFING

Architects suer from 'visual bias': their vision distracts their attention from the other senses .This is my attempt to see beyond the visual. To create a campus that integrates sensory stimulation into the curriculum through the physical environment To provide means for self- guidance through transition spaces, thereby inducing a sense of independence in the students To provide a platform for the students to train and practice in interested ventures Realising that architecture does not stop here. But how do we get started? How do we design buildings with and for our entire body? How do we make a building an experience for all the senses, with attention to the acoustics, the sense of touch and temperature changes? Some of the unique talents of blind: -Heightened senses of smell and touch -Increased conďŹ dence. -Increased sensuality.

THESIS: SCHOOL FOR DARKNESS

OVERVIEW

Architects suffer from ‘VISUAL BIAS’, their vision distracts their attention from the other senses. This is my attempt to see beyond the visual. But how do we get started? How do we design buildings with and for our entire body? How do we make a building an experience for all the senses, with attention to the acoustics, the sense of touch and temperature changes? To create school for the blind and visually impaired as an enjoyable, interactive environment for the creation, development and exhibition of potential within, in all of its form, while using all the senses in order to comprehent and understand the spaces in which the activities occur. Visual impairment represents a continuum, from very poor vision, to people who can see light but no shapes, to people who have no perception of light at all. The disabled can adapt to any situations, but still we need to provide easy, pleasant, safe spaces for them. Government and designers need to enrich their design to fit the disables’ basic needs. This thesis is about the sense, but more specifically about the architecture’s role in filtering and forming our sensory perception.


THESIS: SCHOOL FOR DARKNESS

SITE SELECTION AND ANALYSIS Statistics show that the populationn of children with visual impairment is quite high in Tamilnadu. Among the major urban centers of the state, Chennai has adequate facilities for the education and treatment for the same. The second upcoming urban center in Tamilnadu is Coimbatore, with the lack of a well-equipped school for the visually impaired.

The site chosen is strategically located in close proximity to the Coimbatore- Avinashi road. It islocated in an institutional hub of the city with suďŹƒcient facilities around. Coimbatore has a tropical wet and dry climate. The mean temperature ranges from 35.9o C to 29.2o C and the mean minimum temperature ranges from 24.5o C to 19.8o C.

NON-PERIODIC tilings tile the plane in a non-repeating manner but can also tile it in a regular periodic manner. Non-periodic tiling are all the tilings that are not periodic. Aperiodic tilings are non-periodic tilings whose tiles can’t be re-arranged in a periodic manner.

‘L’ tiling systems provide a rich source of aperiodic tilings. A set of tiles that forces a ‘L’ structure to emerge is said to enforce the aperiodic structure. These ‘L’ tilings are necessarily non-periodic, in precisely the same manner.

THESIS: SCHOOL FOR DARKNESS

SIE PLAN ACADEMIC BLOCK

STAFF-QUARTERS BLOCK

DORMITORY BLOCK

A concept which covers all predicted disabled issues in a multisensory approach the whole design. Discovering positive impacts of sensory experiences helps extract salient features of beneďŹ cial environments, which can serve to inform future design goals. Gathering information on the senses can be applied speciďŹ cly to the architectonic qualities of a space, thereby providing a framework for future applications to follow. Architectural elements used here are touch,texture, furniture, reverberation rate, water. The senses are mediators between people and the environment, the information we receive and how our brains process it; they tell us about natural phenomena, warn us of danger, and provide us pleasure.

Understanding the senses is the first step in sensory design. Sensory reactions decode an experience at a particular time in a particular space. They link is physiologically to the present and connect us through memory to the past. John Zeisel tells us, “If you understand how people’s brains and minds… have developed over time to respond to physical environments, then environments designed to support these capabilities as well as tasks, activities, and user needs, will contribute to people’s quality of life, creativity, and survival”. The senses are mediators between people and the environment, the information we receive and how our brains process it; they tell us about natural phenomena, warn us of danger, and provide us pleasure.

PEBBLE PATH PLANTATION WATER BODY PLANTS STONE PAVERS GRASS PAVEMENT

As you walk into the garden, the first thing that strikes you is the smell – a heady mix of mint, rosemary, basil, thyme, davana and sweet marjoram. So this is a herbal garden! But, move on and you realize the place is a pot pouri of odd-shaped plants. There’s bamboo grass under a peepal tree; a fruit-laden desi almond tree alongside a flowering pomegranate. The smooth pebbles of the inverted ‘T’ at the entrance and the corners indicate a change in direction when you step on them. The Braille board to the right spells out the topography of the garden. It tells the children how to walk about by themselves. In each block, smaller pebbles and mat strips indicate the presence of more Braille boards on stands along the edge of the path. The boards offer information on the botanical, English and local names of the plants, family and economic importance as well as biodiversity and the need for conservation.


BRIEFING

The call for new urbanism had led to the formation of smarter towns, yet not decongesting the cities. At present, the scenario is too intimidating on one side with a huge housing shortage and on the other side lack of proper utilization of resources. Research had proven this demand could be tackled by eďŹƒcient use of resources (land) with necessary transport infrastructure and by providing a good mix of housing. An enthusiastic developer is willing to develop on this site aqcuired by TNHB, a mixed income housing with supporting recreational amenities. The agenda of this housing studio would aim at creating a brewed design that focuses mainly on modules at an intimate scale, blocks at an architectural scale and planning at an urban scale.

CAMPUS PLANNING: MIXED HOUSING

30 sq.m Studio type apartment to ďŹ t the growing needs of bachelors in the present site condition. It would be with a common mess facility with an individual work and rest space.

HIGH INCOME GROUP HOUSING PLAN

40 sq.m The ďŹ rst module to be designed is for a single family with a foyer, living, dining, kitchen with no powder room. This would on one hand meet the basic requirement of a smaller family as well as being a rental outlet for a couple of bachelors.

FUTURE EXPANSION

OSR

80 sq.m Possibly a smaller two-bed apartment or a larger single bed apartment with a foyer, drawing, dining, kitchen, utility and bedrooms with a powder room. 100 sq.m A service apartment with stack of 3 rooms with a common kitchen cum dining facility, bath and W.C. It may or may not include a smaller collective or workspace.

INTERIORS: ZERO CAFE


INTERIORS: HWEALTH CAFE An English approach to seating where people are seated comfortable indoor as well as outdoor. Rustic furniture, planters makes the sketch look more and more holistic throughout the design. A little yellow, a touch of wood, a brick cladding wall and a blackened out ceiling makes the space neutral and equally tantalizing. A few quirky quotes and frames breaks the monotony of the room. A view of the open kitchen through the cafe makes it a transparent way of functioning. Pendant lights cast for each table makes the lighting adequate during the nights as well. The type of seating and the layout of the tables and chairs are just as important in creating the proper atmosphere as the type of seating. Varied seating type in the cafe target the comfort level of different customers. A wooden partition so light yet so functional adds an elegant detail that forms a space segregation. A simple shade of the wooden flooring is an important element that adds the right rustic element in the space. An exposed blackened ceiling with visible Air conditioning and ducting seems to direct attention towards the ceiling as well. A neutral yet enticingly complimenting the treatments on the walls and floor and the furniture. Customized crockery is another frontier the customization for the cafe has been done. Comforts have been kept in mind not just for the design but for the dining as well.
