To facilitate exchange of teaching pedagogy, concepts, and professional
ideas, the faculty at NIFT participates in academic exchange programs, international
fairs, seminars, exhibitions, conferences and trade shows thereby bringing their
substantial experienceto the classroom and thus enriching the knowledge pool at

Visual continuity is very essential as fashion has to be criticized and
peoples reaction and opinion matters, for it to become the trend.
Interactive spaces:Spaces that inspire to think and design and dream.
Should be vibrant to go with fashion which is something that keeps on
changing and is always new.
Should create enthusiasm and interest in students.
Should create interactive spaces between different labs and studios
because all courses are linked and are interdependent.

Should be innovative andshould not create a sense of a very formal
atmosphere. Creative students like informal spaces than formal spaces in general
Spaces to display apparels, manekins, clothes etc. in a public space
visually accessible to everyone.
A resource centre with material library and Amphitheatre arevery
essential for conducting fashion shows, weeks etc

1.2 AIM:
To design a lively and vibrant campus for NIFT to assist the Indian
apparel/fashion industry in meeting the industrial competitiveness in the global plane.


To emerge as the centre of excellence and innovation , that will help
create, design and dream, proactively catalizing growth of fashion business through
leadership in professional education with concern for social and human value.
To create strong nodal points that attracts the students.
The design involves lot of complex thinking process to create a lively and a
vibrant campus that equals the best in the world at NIFT.
To provide multidisciplinary curricular towards a skill oriented, broad based
education integrating it with IT and modern industry practices.
To design with visual continuity keeping in mind that fashion has to be
criticized to be refined.
To design studios such that it offers ample opportunity to students to
experiment and innovate, while the laboratories provide hi technology work areas
covering real time aspects of the industry.
The education structure should emphasize hands on experience through
practical setups and state of the art of technology.
Fashion industry is ever-changing.To relate this concept and design a
flexible and adaptable campus.
To study about traditional architecture in Rajasthan and try incorporating
climatic related design aspects into the design.

Fashion design is the most high profile career and very glamorous too. It
involves in it the latest trend of fashion and taste of creative work and involvement
with variety and texture of clothes. And the designers work with materials, designing,
working with senior designers. Although theprofession of fashion designing is a very
creative work and also very refreshing as it produces something new from within itself
but every designer has to prove his philosophies, capabilities, vision, discussions,
samples, sketches, and many more. And there is no involvement of his personal life,
his style, his needs, his attitude but then also he has to produce the exciting designs
with different colours and materials. A designer makes the film stars as a super star
and gives a new direction to his personality.


There are around 300 students from Rajasthan who apply to NIFT every
year, and with an indigenous NIFT Centre the number is surely going to shoot up.

The design involves a lot of complex thinking process to create a lively
and a vibrant campus implemented with facilities that equals the best in the world at
NIFT. Creative architecture and spaciousness defines all NIFT buildings, which
house fully equipped lecture halls, design studios and laboratories, resource centres,
activity centres, gym and hostels

Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
It is located 335 km (208 mi) west from the state capital, Jaipur and 200
km(124 mi) from the city of Ajmer.
The city is known as the "Sun City" for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys
all year. It is also referred to as the "Blue City" due to the blue-painted houses around
the Mehrangarh fort.
The climate of Jodhpur is generally hot and semi arid, but with rainy
season from late June to September.
The average rainfall is around 450mm.Temperatures are extreme
throughout the period from March to October, except when monsoonal rain produces
thick clouds to lower it slightly. In the months of April, May and June, high
temperatures routinely exceed 40 degrees Celsius, generally low humidity.

The following design elements apply to the East and City Campuses of
UNL, and should be taken into consideration in all building and site development.
These elements are generally considered by most architects and landscape
architects, and are articulated here as a reminder and check list.

2.1.1 Scale and Proportion:
The scale and proportion of a building impacts the sense of place within
the campus. New buildings and additions should acknowledge surrounding context,
but recognize and establish human scale. The design of the building should take
into consideration how the design affects a person standing at the face of the
structure as well as the building scale is read.

2.1.2 Building site:
How the building is situated on the site will have a significant impact on the
success of the design solution. Care should be taken to site the building in a way
that creates a positive connection between the building and pedestrian paths, for it
must be remembered that on an essentially pedestrian campus most building
visitors will arrive on foot. The building should acknowledge the setback or
alignment of the adjacent buildings. Adjacent buildings should also be studied in
regard to their entry locations, potential for shared plaza and/or entry arrangements,
and for the development or enhancement of outdoor spaces and spaces between
buildings. The location of building service entrances also deserves special
consideration. The view from and to existing campus landmarks should also be
analyzed and incorporated when sitting in a new building.

2.1.3 Form:
The form of the building can greatly impact the texture of its area of
campus. A consistent form used throughout a specified area provides a cohesive,
identifiable appearance to that area. The roofline, proportion and visual mass of
building affect the overall form. By using similar building forms, a high degree of
unity between buildings on the campus can emerge, even among buildings of
differing architectural style.

2.1.4 Materials:
The material from which structures or landscape elements are constructed
can have a significant effect on the image of the campus projects. Defining a palette
of appropriate building materials, including their colours, can allow a designer
freedom of expression, yet establish a unity among campus buildings.

2.1.5 Building elements and style:
Significant building elements such as cornice lines, building datum lines,
pronounced entries or porticos, colonnades, awning, elements, stairways, and
masonry detailing comprise a vocabulary of design features that help to create a
cohesive campus identity. Designs which respond to and incorporate these
common features will further the goal of campus visual unity.
Fig 2.1: Nift Hyderabad- pergola fig 2.2: Nift Delhi, Entrance

2.1.6 Site planting:
Plantings should be provided around academic buildings and residential
living units and open spaces between buildings should be planted to create continuity
on campus. Special attention should be given to all building entries with plant
materials selected for scale ,texture, seasonal color and overall visual impact.

Building entries that face major mails and streets should be treated as front porches
with seating areas, planting beds, lights and benches providing opportunities for
small, informal gatherings. Pedestrian pathways , many of which lie along the former
street grid, should be preserved wherever possible. Trees and shrubs should be used
to buffer parking lots, building services areas, open storage areas and high volume


2.2.1 .Laboratory
Laboratory is defined in the dictionary as a building set apart to experiment
in natural science. In lab construction, the present tendency is to move away from the
traditional design incorporating rooms of final size to a more flexible arrangement
with movable walls and furniture.
Issue in laboratory design:
(i) Flexibility
(iii)Quality of environment

2.2.1 .1 Pattern making table(170*120*750)
A common table is provided for each student for drawing, pattern making
and cutting of garments. To save spaces these tables may be units of two ends face
to face, further they may be joined lengthwise also to have a long continuous work
surface. The basic working area recommended for students is providing by a
tablet(170*125*750). Spaces provided between tables should be enough for working
on mannequins and comfortable space for circulation. Sewing machine (110*50*750)
Sewing machines are provided for each student. Special function machine per two
students & stream iron tables with boiler unit. It is necessary to press the material at
various intervals during sewing process:therefore it should be located close to the
sewing machine. A small screened fitting area with atleast two full length mirrors is
also a necessary component.


2.2.2 Lecture hall
Major factors to be considered in designing a classroom are:
1.Seating and writing surfaces.
2.Spaces and furnishing for the lecturer.
3.Wall spaces including chalk boards, screens, etc facilities for projection
and television. Acoustics and lighting
The seating arrangement is the most important factor in determining the
size and shape of the classroom. A wider lecture room is preferred to a deeper one
because the students closed to teacher, control ac cashier and provides for a better
visibility and interaction with instructor.
For normal use and length strength, a square lecture room with audio-
visualfacilities, fan shaped room is preferred. Area
For classroom size of 30-40. The lecture room area would be from
1.2 1.4sq m per student.
Lecturing demonstrating discussion , testing and evaluating.
Desk should be provided at least per student as working.
If these rooms are used by other departments then they should be
accessible by all.
Good visibility to a large extend is dependent on arrangements.


2.3.1 Fashion Design

Transition as generally found is either a linkage or a connection of the
inside and the outside. It is used in continuing the spirit of place or changing it in a
definite sequence with a particular expression . To understand transition should be
seen with its relationships as the degree of functions and the degree of scale
changes with a variety from domestic scale to the city scale.

Transition has gained importance since centuries and has ever since been
valued and all styles of architecture .one perceives through series of incidents that
transition is an experience and is essential for solving numerous problems. Transition
is a kind of in between stage between the two different stages. Eg: In case of a
shelter between the outside and the inside.

Transition exists between spaces, forms, materials, structures, levels etc.
Wherever two or more than two things exist dependently or independently transition
exists. As understood in architecture, transition is an entity, which may act as a
bridge-bridging two or more, similar or dissimilar nature of aspects. Here, the spaces
may be labelled or may not be labelled without functions.

Transition can also be interpreted as partial of one quality into another,
before the two become totally different from another. For example, semi-enclosed
places on the periphery of a building, where the outside and the inside both meet.
Transitions can be between the dark and the light .Dusk is transition between the
day and night.

Transition can be broadly classified into two major forms:
a)Physical Form
b)Visual Form
a) Physical Form

The origin of physical form of transition lies in the need of physical travel
from a kind of spaces to the other kind. As a result of this, one can study the
relationship of two spaces , where a space can be a major or subordinate to the other

shelter.The Physical transition is called a transitional space, when two dimensions
are added to the transitional element, namely (depth) and time taken for travel.

Direction is also one of the major factors, due to which transition is called
an element or a space. Transition between two levels can be called as travelling
through a transitional space. Time is a major factor which makes the transition
elaborate or abrupt, so that it becomes a transitional element respectively,
enclosed space with an amp connecting the same levels as an element. Light is one
of the important aspects, which contributes to the physical transition the most and
signifies the transition in contextual aspect of time. Time is another factor, which
offers a dimension to transition especially in an individual movement, visual spectacle
or one position to another.

2.4.1.Visual Form
Unlike physical form, Visual form of transition deals with visual
accessibility and establishes a visual connection with the objects and environment
around. It does not allow the observer to travel physically but extends out the space
from the building and takes the outdoor life with the enclosed space.

Visual form of transition is achieved of manifestations of different forms.
The elemental form of transition depends mainly upon certain constraints such as:
climate ,socio-economic structure and religious background with other manmade
and natural factors. Along with special qualities ,it is an architectural solution to the
hazards in general.

The transition between the street and the house becomes very important.
House pattern found in east and west provides separation of domains and effectively
separates the house and its life from both street and neighbors. The degree of
privacy (Internal, Extemal)is achieved in its own way, as in the case of eastern house
privacy acnieved from outside becomes significant unlike western house where
internal privacy is given more preference. A dear transition occurs from the noisy
public domain to the quiet privacy one from relatively plain, simple and restrained
exterior to whatever richness and luxury exists inside.


2.5.1 Physical transitions:
By physical transitions, the actual applications of a theoretic idea of
transition are meant. They can occur within the body of an organism or in actual
space; between similar are contradictory elements. The physical world is formed of
various planes, objects, volumes, masses and spaces between these entities. The
spaces give a definition of these entities, their shape and form and vice- versa , the
entities and the relationships between each other give an identity to the space
around them.

2.5.2Architectural expressions on transitions
Architecture is a three-dimensional system, which contains its own set of
units like elements, planes and volumes, it was set within the physical world, serving
the purpose for which it was built form is inanimate, it happens to be a part of the
living environment, where living beings interact with it.

Architecture occurs at the meeting of interior and exterior forces of use
and space. These interiors environmental forces are general and particular, generic
and circumstantial"

When such a meeting core occurs, there is bound to be change in
circumstances. The intrinsic features of the realms are different, they may even be
opposing in nature. This situation creates a tension, and a point of change is created.
This point is where the system tries to balance itself, trying to bring about a
phenomenon, an event. This is where the design allows for a provision of time and
space for the user, to analyze and to adapt. The point of equilibrium, and thereby
space created is called the transition space and is also referred to as the in-between
realm of the interface.

"The transition must be articulated by means of defined in-between places
which induce simultaneous awareness of what is significant on either side. An in -
between space in this sense provides the common ground where conflicting polarities
can again become twin phenomena

As seen earlier, in the various biological, economic, scientific situations,
one needs to concept the different constituent varied core phases. Similarly, in

architecture, transition zones help in connecting varied core spaces and continuing
the attitudes to be adopted. They form a tangible network of spaces, for one to
access and use inscribing one into the built form, and spatial and social terms. They
take into consideration various methods in which the user can anticipate and adjust
to the change in the surroundings while entering and orient him within the built form.
They are intermediate spaces, which help the users to associate with the constituent
elements of the built form, by providing a continuity and spirit to the different functions
assembled together.

This type of intermediate zone functions as a many(interval) permitting two
opposing elements to exist in symbiosis . Intermediated space makes a
discontinuous continuum possible,so that a plurality of opposing elements can co
exist in an everchanging dynamic relationship. The nature intermediate space is
ambiguity and multi-valence. It doesnot force opposing elements into compromise or
harmony ,but provides the key to their living symbiosis. All architecture is a
structuring of space by means of a gal or path

This route thereby becomes an intermediate entity, preparing the user to
anticipate the sequence of spaces. The route which is the link to the core spaces,
leads up to the goal; in which case. A hierarchy of the spaces is generated in the built
form. As it leads from one space to another, the transactional route eventually
becomes the prelude to the destination place. On the other hand, this route connects
spaces in the build form in a random order, in which case all spaces may be
rendered as equal. This also depends on the types of functions they serve and
connect. Sometimes, the route could be only a mode of connecting various
transitional spaces that prepare the user to visualize the situation. Ten, spatial
transitions become phenomena that occur along the path or on a route to the goal:
the identity and value of which depends on the structuring of the path. In all cases
mentioned above, the transitional route associates itself with the activity spaces,
thereby participating in the total composition. It can choose to continue the quality of
one space via itself to another, or modify the quality with its own features to suit the
other. It can also choose to protect the quality with its own features to suit the other. It
can also choose to protect the quality of one introducing a series of buffers
that bar any disturbance. It can choose to continue or change the attitude of the

space, depending on the need. It portrays itself as a connector and separator
determinants of a spatial transition.


2.6.1 Horizontal Plane:
The horizontal plane, as an element , in a built form usually is represented
by the base plane, sunken or elevated It allows for continuity in the flow of space
across I, but can also create a space if boundaries are set .This plane is the ground
plane on which we move ,and thereby ,becomes a part of the route taken during a
transition. The ground space can be elevated to maintain a degree of distinction and
separation between spaces .Some examples on the ground are a transition element
is platforms sits, walkways bridges etc..

This plane is elevated roof plane that covers space from above, which
thereby defines the extend and quality of the transition space. It also has the
distinction of being able to protect various spaces from natural forces. Many
modifications made are made in the roof plane, to achieve certain requirements. For
eg: Punctures are made in the roof plane to bring the light , heat, ventilation and
view. Some examples of the roof plane as a transition element are lintels, beams,
pergolas, ceilings, terraces, etc.

2.6.2 Vertical Plane:
The vertical plane as an element, in a built form is represented by the wall under
most circumstances. It is the element that stands between the outside and the
inside, two contradictory realms. Considering the importance of the wall, venture has
regarded the wall to be an architectural event and has stated . Since the inside is
different from outside ,the wall ,the point of change becomes an architectural event.
Architecture as the wall between the inside and the outside becomes the spatial
record of this resolution and its drama, and by recognising the difference between the
inside and the outside, architecture opens the door once again to the urbanistic point
of view.


The circulation path can be conceived as the perpetual thread that links
the spaces of a budding, or any series of interior or exterior spaces, together Since
we move in time through a sequence to space, we experience a space in relation to
where we've been and where we anticipate going.

The Ultimate purpose of an architectural is to contain space The human
body, in order to pursue any activity requires a certain minimum of unobstructed
volume around it (determined purely by the activity) called UTILIZATION SPACE But
such a space does not satisfy the emotional requirements exerts and influence on
and modifies the other that we get ARCHITECTURAL MASS is to create and
correspond to the distribution in space,

Space itself Has No Dimension And No Form. It Is The Presence Of The
Mass That Makes Us Experience Space_ Mass Is A Positive Volume Space Is A
Negative One

2.9 FORM
a)MASS or VOLUME or evidence of the three dimensions.
b)DIRECTION vertical or horizontal axis of the mass.
c)SHAPE-geometric qualities.


2.10.1 Shape:
The principal identifying characteristic of form: shape results from the
specific configuration of form surface and edges.

2.10.2 Texture:
The surface characteristics of a form, texture effects the lactic and light
reflective qualities of a forms/spaces.


2.10.3 Size:
The real dimensions of forms, its scale is determined by its size. relative to
the other forms of in its context

2.10.4 Visual lnertia:
The degree of concentration and stability of a form: visual inertia of a form
depends on its geometry as well as its orientation relative to the ground plane and
our line of sight.

2.10.5 Color:
The hue intensity and the tonal value of a forms surface: colour is the art
but that most clearly distinguishes from its environment. It also affects the visual
weight of a form.

2.10.6 Position:
A form location relative to its environment or visual field

2.10.7 Orientation:
A forms position relative to the ground plane.The compass point or to the
person viewing the form.

The symbiotic relationship of form and space in architecture can be
examined and found in several scales. At each level we should be concerned not
only with the building's form, but also its impact on the space around it. At the scales
of the building's form, but also its impact on the space around it in many ways.

A simple field of space may be defined by a horizontal plane, laying as a
figure on contrasting background. The stronger the edge definition the more
articulate will be its fields. For a plane to be seen as a figure there must be a strong
and perceptible change in color or texture between its surface and the plane upon
which it lies.


There is a continuous flow of space around it and it defines a territory zone
of spaces within its boundaries. This is often used to define a space within a larger
spatial context This type of spatula elimination can be used to differentiate between a
path of movement and places of rest, define a field from which the form of the
buidling rises out of the ground or to articulate a functional zone within a one room
living environment etc.

A horizontal plane elevated above the around plane establisheS a verticaL
space along its edge that reinforce the visual separation Between its field and the
surrounding ground the change in level defines the boundaries of the world and
interrupts the flow of space across its surface.

The degree to which the spatial and visual continuity is maintained
between an elevated space and its surroundings depends on the scale of level of
change. Edge of field well defines visual and spatial continuity is maintained physical
access is easily accommodated.

Visual Continuity minted spatial continuity interrupted physical access
requires use of stairs or ramps. Visual and spatial continuity is disrupted, the field of
the elevated plane is isolated from the ground the elevated plane is isolated from
ground the elevated plane is transformed in sheltering element for the space below.

A Horizontal plane is depressed into the ground plane utilizes the vertical
surfaces of the depression to define a volume of space. A contrast in form geometry
or surface treatment can be used to visually reinforce the independence of the
depressed field of space from its larger spatial context.

The degree of spatial continuity between the depressed and the
surrounding depends on the scale of level change. The act of stepping might express
the extroverted nature or its shattering and protective qualities. The depressed field
can be an interruption of the ground or floor plane and remain an internal part of the
surrounding space.


Increased the depth of the depressed field weakens its visual relationship
with the surrounding space and strengthens its definitions as a distinct volume of
space. Once the original space plane is above over eye level the depressed field
becomes in effect a separate and district room itself.


2.15.1 Street Space
Unlike a room a plaza has no ceiling to define the height of the space
within its walls and unlike a plaza a street has only two walls with which to define
space. If those walls are low in relation to the width of the street views outward are
not contained enough to provide a sense of unifying space.

The range of human vision thus affects the perception of street space and
scale. Human vision in a horizontal plane encompasses around 180 degrees and
about 130 degrees in the vertical plan.

In a street with a 1:4 ratio of street wall height to width, there is three times
as much sky as wail within the normal vision. Such streets have a weak sense of
space. Good spatial definition though extremely difficult to accomplish is not

When the ratio is decreased to 1:2 the peripheral glimpses of the sky
equal the amount of visual field devoted to the street wall. A 1:2 ratio is the minimum
desirable ratio for good street spatial definition sky view is severely limited and strong
spatial definition is possible

When the street wall height to height to width ratio is increased to 3:2 to
the building is no longer visible without adjusting the angle of the head. Where ratio
becomes higher still, it starts become difficult to judge the height.

2.15.2 Plaza Space
Plaza s differ from parks and squares in the that the emphasis is on
creating a volume of space by architectural means trees and landscaping
generally play a small or non-existent role in plaza design. Plaza s should posses an

intense three-dimensional quality. The quality of spatial containment is controlled by
seven interrelated factors.

Maximum size preferably not to exceed preferable size is maximum size is
also limited to height of surrounding buildings. Generally width should not exceed
height by 3:1, maximum 4:1. The buildings composing the frame generally should be
of a uniform height that does not vary more than 25%.

The shape of a plaza should permit the space the experienced in its
entirely from any point within. Simplicity of form is desired concave curving walls,
contain space effectively. A tall tower can function as the maintained pole to the
space. When the buildings suffer from a degree of discard careful sculpturing of the
plaza floor can counter balance the deficiencies. Clarity of form and closure are
weakened when continuity of the plaza frame is broken by wide road ways or other

A visitor to the plaza must be able to reference his movement across the
plaza and comprehended the volume of the space. Most important for this are lines
and planes projecting from surroundings buildings. Sculpture can capture hold space
and provided a central organizing focus.

There are some basic ways in which building spaces can be related to one
another and organized into coherent patterns of form and space.

2.16.1 Space within a Space
A large space can envelope or contain within its volume a smaller
contained space depends on the larger, enveloping space for its relationship to
outdoor spaces. In this type of spatial relationship the larger enveloping space serve
as a three dimensional field for the space contained within it. For this a clear
differentiation in size between the two spaces is necessary.

For a higher attention value, the contained space may share the form of
the enveloping shape but be oriented differently shape but be oriented differently.
This creates a secondary grid and a set of dynamic residual spaces within a larger

space. The contained space and strengthen its image as a freestanding object. This
contrast in form may indicate a functional difference that symbolic importance of the
contained space.

2.16.2 Interlocking Spaces
An interlocking spatial relationship consists of two spaces whose fields
overlap to form a zone of shared space. When two spaces interlock their volumes in
the manner, each retains the identity and definition as a space. But the resulting
configuration of the two interlocking spaces will be subject to a number of

The interlocking portion of the two volumes can be shared equally by each
space. The interlocking portion can merge with one of the spaces and become and
integral part of its volume. The interlocking portion can develop its own integrity as a
space that serves to link the two original spaces.

Here each space is clearly defined and responds in its own way to its
functional or symbolic requirements. The degree of visual and spatial continuity that
occur between two adjacent spaces depends on the nature of the plane that both
separates and binds them together. Limit visual and physical access between two
adjacent spaces, reinforce the individuality of each space and accommodate their

Be defined with a row of columns that allows high degree of visual spatial
continuity between the two spaces. Appear as a free standing plane in a single
volume of space. Be merely implied with a change in level or surface articulation
between the two spaces. This and the cases best it can also be read as single
volumes of space that are divided into related two zones.

2.16.3 Spaces Linked by a Common Space
Two spaces that are separated by distance can be linked, or related to
each other by a third intermediate space. The relationship between the two spaces
will depend on the nature of the third space to which they share a common
relationship. The intermediate space can differ in form and orientation form the two

spaces to express its linking function. The two spaces as well as the intermediate
space can be equivalent in shape and size and for alinear sequence of spaces.

The form of the intermediate space may be determined solely by the forms and
orientation of the two spaces being linked. The intermediate space itself can become
linear in form to link two distant spaces having no direct relationship to one another.
The intermediate space can if large enough become the dominant space in the
relationship and to be capable of organizing a number of spaces about it.


2.17.1 Central Organisations:
A centralized organization is a stable concentrated composition that
consists of a number of secondary spaces grouped around large dorminant central
space. The secondary spaces may differ from one another in their form or size and
create an overall form which may not be symmetrical.

2.17.2 Linear Organization:
Linear organization consists essentially of a series of spaces. These
spaces can either be linked directly or related through separate and distinct linear
space. The linear organization usually consists of repetitive spaces that may or may
not be alike in size from and function. Because of their characteristic length linear
organization expresses a direction and signifies movement extension and growth.

Spaces that are functionally or symbolically important to the organization
can occur anywhere and their size and form. Their significance can also be
emphasized by their location at the end of the linear sequence offset from the
organization or at the pivotal points of a segmented linear form. The form of a linear
organization is inherently flexible and can respond readily to various site conditions.

2.18.3 Radial Organizations:
A radial organization of space combines elements of both centralized and
linear organizations. It consists of a dominant central space from which a number of
linear organizations extend in a radial manner. A radial organization is an extroverted

scheme that reaches out its context. With its linear arms, it can extend and attach
itself to specific elements or features of its site.

The linear arms may be similar to one another in form and length and
maintain the regularity of the organizations overall form. The arms can also differ
from one another to respond to their individual requirements. A specific variation of
the radial organization is the pinwheel pattern. This arrangements results in a
dynamic pattern that visually suggests a relational movement about the central

2.18.4 Grid Organizations:
Grid organization Consists of forms and spaces whose positions in space
and relationships with one another are regulated by a three dimensional guide
pattern on field. A grid is established by creating a regular pattern of points that
define the intersections of parallel lines projected into the third dimension the grid
pattern is transformed into a set of repetitive, modular units of space. The organizing
power of a grid results from the regularity and continuity of its pattern that pervades
the demands it organizes.

A grid can be subtracted from added to or layered and still maintain its
identity as a grid with the ability to organize spaces. To accommodate specific
dimensional requirements, or to articulate zones of circulation or service, a grid can
be made irregular in 1 or 2 directions. A grid can slide or to be interrupted to
accommodate various conditions

2.18.5 Clustered Organizations:
The clustered organizations uses proximity to relate its spaces to the
another it often consists of repetitive. Cellular spaces that have similar functions and
share a common visual trait such as shape or orientation. A clustered organization
can also accept spaces that are dissimilar in size form and function, but related to
one another by proximity and a visual ordering device such as symmetry or an axis.
The form of such an organization is flexible and can accept growth and change
readily without affecting its character.


Clustered spaces can be organized about a point of century into a building
or along the path of movement through it. The spaces can also be clustered about a
large defined field or volume of space. This pattern is similar to that of a centralized
organization, but it lacks the latter's compactness and geometrical regularity. Since
there is no inherent place of importance within the pattern of a clustered organization,
the significance of a space must be articulated by its size, form or orientation within
the pattern. Symmetry or an axis can unity and help articulate the importance of a
space or group of spaces within the organization.

Visual continuity can be maintained by means of a linear axis about which
the various spaces are organized. A series of spaces like courts can be organized
about a central court and linked to each other. It can also be maintained by using
walkways, corridors, etc to link the various blocks. Color, building materials, building
form surface treatment, regulation of openings, etc can help maintain visual
continuity. Distance is an important factor in maintaining visual continuity. An object
which is so far away from a person as his height may not be seen clearly. When it is
twice as far as its major dimensions, it appears as a whole. Beyond four times the
major dimensions, the object simply becomes a part of the general scene.

This project has been done with a vision to design a National Institute of
Fashion Technology in Jaipur. I designed a NIFT considering all the
information I gained in this research. My design takes care of climatic
elements which are of utmost importance as the site I selected is in Jaipur.I
have incorporated traditional cooling techniques which are compatible with the
harsh and extreme conditions in Jaipur. I have designed my project in such a
way that it ensures possibilities of expansion. Traditional Rajasthani elements
have also been considered in my design.
Overall, I hope that my design puts forth an institute that will emerge as
the centre of excellence and innovation and that it will help create design and
dream, proactively catalizing growth of fashion business through leadership in
professional education with concern for social and human value.
