the cube Starting from the origin, my first semester began with exploring various designs

within a cube. Initially we started with the line cube, a way of studying linear designs inside the envelope of a cube. From linear explorations, we proceeded to more planar explorations, and eventually reached a volumetric way of exploring the cube in our final project.

The image above is the Plane Block. The Plane Block was chiefly inspired by the rule of thirds. It also follows a certain hierarchy in the way volumes inside the cube expand to give rise to the front and top facade with the help of delicate shadows. The image on the left is the Line Cube. The line cube was a linear exploration of the cube. In my interpretation, used a consistent language of two parallel lines transformed through different positions inside the cube. 07 suresh


unit screen wall The unit screen wall was a group project where we developed a unit through multiple iterations,

which would then be multiplied and arranged to form a screen wall. The unit screen wall created

was 8’ x 8’ in dimensions consisting of 50% void space. The primary aim of the project was to create a screen wall, while the other objective was to create a sculptural arrangement.

spatial study

college conservatory of music For this assignment, we measured and drafted an area inside a building from campus to study various factors like lighting, massing, geometry and circulation by making precedent drawings based off the plan drawings we documented.

As an amalgamation of our studies, we created a final piece which was emblematic of the space with the help of the precedent drawings

diagramming movement: union terminal, cincinnati

12 suresh


We took a trip to the Union Terminal in Cincinnati, as it is renowned for its Art Deco interiors. Our assignment

was to diagram the movement in the space as it was when the Union Terminal was used as a train station in the 1930’s and diagram the movement as it could be in the future when renovated.

While diagraming movement in the future (2050), we were free to take liberties regarding the facilities and the re-design of the space.

living space The living space was an group project where we built an interactive 8’x8’ space. We were asked to keep in mind concepts like movement and promenade while designing the space. Since each

of the seven studios had to design one space, the sequence of seven 8’x8’ spaces had to flow

well. Hence this project included a lot of intra-group co-ordination to create a common

understanding of overall intentions to create unity.

Documented on this page is my proposal for the design of my section’s model.

Documented in the following pages is the plan and elevation of all the seven models and the individual models too.

public medical unit University of Cincinnati in collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital announced a competition for affordable solutions to avoid unnecessary visits to the hospital by children and their parents for basic illness. My entry to the competition included developing a touch screen app at bus stops to encourage people to find solutions through specialized forums developed to handle medical issues specific to children. The app allows you to check bus shuttle routes to and from the hospital, provides you information on the nearest clinics, and finally the hospital app informs you of the seriousness of the medical condition, hence helping the patient judge if a visit to the hospital is needed.

The alternate solution on my behalf was a self-dispensing, public medical unit. This medical unit would be placed in various public parts of the city where foot traffic is high. The medical unit comes equipped with: * Screen & Camera for interacting with doctors *Basic Medical Instruments * AT M - l i k e
