this foundation studio course was to provide a solid background in compositional principles and design vocabulary as they apply to two-dimensional and three-dimensional problems. the course focused on the development of research skills, analytical approach to visual phenomenon, technical applications, execution skills, perceptual understandings, conceptual ideation, plus visual and verbal communication and presentation skills. studio activities were to be developmental and sequential in nature, to foster creative thinking and programmed problem solving skills. Many time accidental results ware encouraged, and analyzed, mastered to generate deliberated accidents. also there is more emphasis on spatial understanding, reading and manipulation and modulation of it.

Potters’ community housing was to develop on the bank of the Gondali river, in Gondal. Here, individual unit is a combination of public, private and working space. Living space is a buffer between open “otla” and workshop. “Otla” is used for outdoor activities, interaction as well as sleeping during the nights in summer.

material studio

Studio-3 was based on the various studies of materials and climate. Proposal for a kinder garten was programmed in Kochin. In hot and humid climatic conditions, program was perceived with more sensitivity and beyond its pragmatic aspects. Orientation of covered, semi covered and open spaces are based on the functional hierarchy along with the climatic condition as a major criteria. Material application, details of openings and volumetric arrangement of spaces are proposed in the best suitable way with the challenge of hot and humid conditions. Playground is divided into open and semi open area, which act as a transitional space between classroom activities and outdoor activities.

design stodio 4

Given programme to design 5 living units which would house families of different religious, culture, life style, and economy class, yet living in a cluster with collectiveness. As circular open spaces encourage social gathering, often observed on urban level, this design was evolved through the circular court-yard system. Living spaces are facing towards the courtyard through the semi open ‘otla’. Courtyard within a residential unit supports the out door activities and also houses the service area, workshops and transitional spaces. Temple, water tank, and community area are also provided within a cluster to encourage social interaction

art & cultural park, v a d o d a r a . Proposal for art and cultural park took place on a site which had the existence of more than 140 ‘chiku’ and ‘mango’ trees and situated in the context of Shiv Mahal Palace and Chakli Circle, on the Old Padra Road, Vadodara. Total site area and built up for the proposal was 15,280 sq mts and 12,400 sq mts respectively.

As the site is occupied by the densely planted trees on the grid of 12mX12m, design is evolved through the process of conserving the existing landscape of the site. Open green spaces of the project is merged with the green open spaces of the adjacent site of Shiv Mahal Palace. Project consists of cultural and civic activities such as amphitheaters, permanent and temporary art galleries, art workshops, stage and performing art spaces, auditorium, food court, public library and open air pavilion. Minimum built up is laid out on the site to conserve the existing trees and so to integrate such cultural and civic activities with the landscape. A link is also designed which intersects yet connects different activities and ends up in the designed plaza near Shiv Mahal Palace.

Public sleeping is a human need; which is being fulfilled in the sheltered public lobbies edging the streets. The high plinths provide protection from circulation.

‘Beat the white with red wedge’ - El lissitzky 1919

in architectural futures Faculty : Prof. Percy A. Pithawala Constructivism was first created in Russia in 1913 when the Russian sculptor Vladimir Tatlin, during his journey to Paris, discovered the works of Braque and Picasso. When Tatlin was back in Russia, he began producing sculptured out of industrial materials, but he did not give any reference to precise subjects or themes. Those works marked the appearance of Constructivism. The name Constructivism did not describe a specific movement but rather a trend within the fields of painting, sculpture and especially group of artists and their art with machine production, architecture and the applied arts.

Formal qualities the role it played within the Russian Revolution. the Red Wedge -- the Bolsheviks the whites – the Russians

Model for monument to the third-valdimir tatlin

Constructivism art refers to the optimistic, nonrepresentational relief construction, sculpture, kinetics and painting. The artists did not believe in abstract ideas, rather they tried to link art with concrete and realistic ideas. Early modern movements around 1910 were idealistic, seeking a new order in art and architecture that dealt with social and economic problems. They wanted to renew the idea that the meaning of artwork does not revolve around "fine art", but rather emphasized that the most priceless artwork can often be discovered in the meaning of "practical art" and through portraying man and mechanization into one aesthetic program.

Analyzing a painting & merging Cubism and Constructivism Painting: ‘three women’ 1908, Pablo Picaso, oil on canvas, 220cmX230cm

Art appreciation & architectural futures

Three Women, Human organs are the main elements of this painting, Which define the right tension, visually and physically. Left arm of woman in center and left leg of woman in left are in the same orientation, though different in directions. Look at right arm of woman in left and left leg of woman in right. So the force generated by different organs and their connection simply divide the frame in symmetric volumes. As the painting is composed with the different human organs, the hierarchy of their placement makes a visual balance. Connection of the organs are defining visual nodes and focal points at different places. These nodes are further generating volumetric divisions in the frame of geometric forms. Pointslines-cicles-triangles-Look at the gesture of arm and leg movements, how they are oriented with the relation of circle. It gives an image of rotating circle and twisting organs. So which yellow is more looking like a center??? Orientation of the heads are different though it seems that they are aiming for one common thing with closed eyes. This coordination of heads and eyes is centralized by one arc which is also dividing the painting diagonally. See, how the hidden triangles are used to define the volumetric characteristics of the painting, which are different in their orientation, direction, aim, perspective and in the nature of positive and negative spaces. Three women-their heads, arms, elbows, feet and thighs are interrelating with each other. They are visually connected with the circles, ellipses, arches, triangles and lines. For instance, the orientation of head and right arm creates some sort of visual tension and to balance it, left arm is created in banding position. If you centralize the whole arm and head movement with the ellipse or circle, one will find the rhythm and harmony of flowing elements of the painting. Connections of human organs with the lines create a different perspective, w h i c h e m p h a s i z e t h e t h i r d d i m e n s i o n a l i t y. Facultiy: Prof. Percy Pithawala, Year: 2006

The architecture by Aldo Rossi

of the city The image of the city by Kevin Lynch

Modern Architecture - the collapse of history City - hierarchy of spaces which are constructed over time - urban artifacts that withstand the passage of time

Image as an art: basic functions was to create image which by CLARITY and HARMONY of form fulfill the need for vividly comprehensible appearance.-Stern’s idea.

Fundamentals of urban A new theory of urban design-richard hedman with andrew jaszewski design -Christopher Alexander Urban design - a significance function of architecture.

Process- which is responsible for ‘wholeness’ of the city. Patterns- hierarchical organization of centering processes.

Modern architecture- an inversion of past values- pressure of being different leads towards antiurbanism.

The design responds to the need of mass rapid transit system while considering the critical issues prevent in and around the site. Design proposal for metro station has a unique way of integrating commercial complex, office buildings, public plazas, green open spaces, pedestrian walkways, kiosks, public parking, city transportation service, cultural spaces, library, museum and public exhibition. After studying the land use pattern and figure ground of the existing urban fabric, an attempt is made to provide public open spaces on the corner of the site, which would act as ‘urban foyer’ and provide transparency to the vehicular traffics. Integration of each functions with pedestrians pathways including subways, segregate the vehicular traffic and pedestrian movements. Elevated intersection of stations for NS & EW metro lines provide an opportunity to explore the structural innovations & service engineering aspects along with pragmatically linked architecture of the station.
