STUDY OF NEGATIVES AND POSITIVES A canvas on which we simply had to boundlessly express ourselves using colors as a medium. Following that was an exercise wherein we had to depict the three seasons without using any symbolism.

The assignment aimed at exploring a cube of 15cm x 15cm and playing with positive and negatives spaces using folds at 90Âş. A continuation to the above assignment was highlighting various surfaces using primary secondary colors and a combination of both. The use of colors also intended at showing how adjacent surfaces complimented one another.

BUILDING BLOCKS – CONTINUITY, PROPORTION AND SPACING To create a composition within an imaginary 50cm x 50cm cube using cuboids, rectanguloids and spheres with the help of various materials. It had to be such composed that its start and end had to be evident and the entire entity would be continuous.

1st YEAR Sem 1 - Basic Design



STRENGTH OF MATERIALS Understanding how light makes its way into a space through various openings creating a dramatic effect in the inside as well as the outside of a space. A part of this exercise was also understanding direct and diffused light passing through a certain medium.

Incorporating the conclusions of the above assignment, the task was to design a window for a space (15m x 15m room). Designed for a dancer’s space ,the window (opening) had to be continuous throughout.

Using the three specified materials; paper, glue and thread (string) to the bare minimum we had to test their maximum strength and create a structure which would support a brick at a height of 60cm.


The assignment targeted at transferring motion into a space by creating a rhythmatic composition.

Curved or spherical structures can take more load as compared to linear or straight structures. The bending moment is equally divided throughout the structure. It doesn't target a single point, rather it distributes the load equally. So the possibility of failure of the structure is very less.


Triangle is the strongest form to work with and the wire adds to its strength.

Because of less contact of surface area of the cover with the framework and reinforcement bending moment at certain point increases and the chances of failure too.

How can the “CITY AS AN ICON” be sustainable? •

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A system that is designed, built, renovated, operated, or reused in an ecological and resource-efficient manner. A truly sustainable design must be rooted in and evolve from adaptations to local climate, light, flora, fauna, materials and human culture as manifest in indigenous urban, architectural and landscape patterns.


PROPOSAL • Balancing the eco cycle • Amalgamation of built and un-built • Balancing the ecological disturbance



• In future years, the cities would be merging into each other. • The urban spread would haphazardly grow and combine to be one. • In such a situation; this would disturb the ecological balance. • To take a thoughtful step ahead as the future architects. • There is no need to balance the eco-disturbance that would be created in future years. • Nashik – considering the future vision for Nashik • Nashik has the potential to retain its existing environment that is deteriorating other cities. • Intending to retain historical character/ aspect wherever required. “SYSTEM MAKES THE WHOLE CITY ICON.” • “Not limiting our self to one structure, rather making a system the icon of the city.” • “Advantage of having a system is its adaptability .” • Why in Nashik because it has inherit ant things in it like climate ,winery, farming, soil and it is still developing. • To start first develop a system then proceed again to demonstration of system.
