Qube IT Park, Gurgaon -Morphogenesis Because of the unique form FAR for the project was very
delicate issue, a slight change in the soffit would change tons
of FAR area. That's why Project was needed to developed in

the building has platinum rating by the LEED system. Due to
use of ceramic frited glass. Double skin facade was the prime
element in the building design. Structure of the building was

Barcelona 11’

Beyond the function-form, this proposal is an at-


tempt to deal with three T’s of architecture Typology,
Topology, and Tectonics. A bold way to deal with
Functions, Context and Details in the design process
itself.

The challenge of this competition was designing a 100 meter tall tower-hostel which will include relaxation areas and
stores offering young people’s fashion wear, and at the same time creates a new landmark in the city of Barcelona. To
this end, a site had been chosen for the development of the project in the Plaza del MACBA, given that this is the heart
of the Gothic Quarter, opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art designed by the famous architect Richard Meier.

Barcelona 11’

Through wild imagination architect ponder


in context, needs and details of the edifice.
These three elements are needed to articulate
built form with solids, voids with proportions
and aesthetics, giving birth to the architecture
in its own realm. Ultimate goal of architecture
is to design not buildings, but the very own
experience and usefulness of the spaces inside
and outside.

Boka Artists Residence, May 12’

“A writer — and, I believe, generally all persons — must think that whatever happens
to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist
must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our
misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we
may shape our art”

-Jorge Luis Borges

Boka Artists Residence, May 12’

An artist’s own space should be like canvas for painters, nodes for musicians, soft clay for
sculptors, dance for dancers and a story creating experience for writers. Spirit of a space is
truly conceived by intangible essence of human being, user in this case artist. This essence can
be derived from tangible elements like smooth and coldness of steel, and warm and rough-
ness of wood. In Boka Artists residence those tangible elements could be own expressions of
individual artist. He can paint those white surfaces, fill with posters or even write some text on
those surfaces

chosen for the prison was in the dense urban fabric of the
central Ahmedabad. The site was inclusive of an Bhadra fort
which was an old monument, having its own cultural values.
The studio intent was to develop a healthy approach to

International Film Festival Centre, at Goa

Located in Velha Goa , 9km from Panjim bus stand in Tiswadi District. Abutted by World
Heritage precinct on the south and east , National highway NH 4A on the south and the south
bank of the Mandovi River on the north.

No any intervention is made to the historic precinct so that purity of the historic context will
remain further long time stretch. During the festival traffic will be diverted as one-way traffic
connected to proposed site, so that traffic will flow easily without any disturbance to the his-
toric context. Two entry points as well as different parking spaces has been proposed one for
institute and another for daily cinema theatre, during festival parking can go to the adjacent
green patch within own site. For VVIP guest red carpet area has been proposed, right from the
drop off to the space for media people,public and guest waiting considered. Also red carpet
ends in an open amphitheatre with backdrop of Mandavi river.

Efforts’07

Plan Lvl 3rd


The designers were asked to design the facility within an
empty architectural building block. The challenge was in
floor wise distribution of activities, arrangements of floors
within empty volume, interlink within the floors created and
above all the integration of the whole into spatial form to be
reflected on the architecture of the street façade. The project
was having three levels within a larger five-storied large com-
mercial building. Here making use of the existing service and
movement core of the building was major design criteria.

social landmark for the developing Solapur. Form composed of some solids and voids gives
a dynamic picturesque style to the building. Through voids in the background will be the First Floor Plan
Solapur-Bijapur Road running along with the Sambhaji lake Situated behind the site of the art
gallery. Building will serve as a social gathering space in the south zone of the Solapur.

Morphogenesis Small Visions 02

Evolution of form is inspired by the


basic function of a Letter box.

This was an award winning entry for small visions 02 conducted by Morphogenesis.
Letter box was to be designed for a housing in Siliguri, West Bangal. Challenge was to
design a Letter Box which will cope with critical weather conditions of Siliguri and also
will be a visually striking element in the landscape.

“Design is also considered as the aesthetic conservation of requirements into


reality”

The whole idea was to create & manage visual & psychological elements one by one, so that
the product would enhance environment quality as well as increase the productivity, Based
on ergonomics factors. Different colours & slots for dropping mails, have been introduced. So
that segregation of mails will be easy. “Set up of angular and straight lines and curly lines
approaches critically to change the contemporary elements to the innovative design ”

Graphic Design - Elective

Graphic design elective was conducted by Sanjay


Basvraju. In this elective we have learned the basics of
typography. Everything about computer fonts.

All the basic type of serif font, sans serif fonts. We learnt how
the content is important in the Graphic Design. What is com-
position and positive space and negative space.

The exercises on the software “Adobe InDesign” was the


important lesson, because of which this port folio and thesis
report were the excellent product of this workshop.

we completed a demo book which was the thesis report of


one of my classmate from theory and design “Prachi Bhavsar”

I enjoyed all the electives very much, I think electives are the
ways to rejuvenate oneself from old baggages.

Detailing - A Carlo Scarpa retrospective

“The joint is the beginning of ornament and that must be distinguished from decoration which is simply applied.
Ornament is the adoration of the joint.”

-Louis Kahn

Above quote is very clear about difference between, interlocking constructional elements, junctions and just applied decora-
tion. Hence question arises, what is architectural detail? When interlocking constructional elements, junctions, and expressive
material finishes are taken in account, thinking construction and aesthetical sense, they can become self-expressive technical
composition. This thoughtful and creative process of working with materials and joints is known as “Detailing”, that is to say
architecture resides in detail.

The tectonic expression of architecture is capable of enhancing the physical and intellectual experience of built form. The shift
of spiritual centre from organic to inorganic has changed the face of art and architecture in recent century. This is only possible
because of new materials and advanced techniques. Detailing demonstrates the attribute of materials through application of
the laws of construction. It renders design decisions and articulates design. Detailing is one of the most important processes
for writing architectural language. Analysis and display of material provided by laws of construction, formation of architectural
objects are constituent principal support in tectonic expression. Amplification of construction can be source of meaning. This
Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978) Italian Architect research thesis will focus on the concept of the architectural detail through texts and drawings.

Why detailing is an important process in architectural Intention of this research thesis is to study role of detailing in architecture; focusing on de-tailing as expression of style and
design or Why detailing is necessary in architecture? character of architecture. The architectural details are seen as words composing a sentence. And as the selection words and
placing them in appropriate style gives character to the sentence in similar way selection of proper material and putting them

Detailing - A Carlo Scarpa retrospective

"There is no such thing as a good idea, there is only expression."


-Carlo Scarpa

Every single good architectural object goes through process of detailing. Each and every single architect unconsciously
practices detailing as profound or subtle processes in back of his mind. Detailing is inherent in the idea of design. Detailing
is concealed in the word “Design” itself. To design means to detail out spaces inside and outside. By looking at works of Carlo
Scarpa, we see, the spiritual experience of the space within a building is derived from tiny details constituent within the built
form, evolved from, material, structure (Joining technique), dimensions and drawings.

Material

According to programmatic requirement, structural requirement choosing the right material is very important in the proce-
dure of detailing. Before deciding materials a good knowledge of the raw materials, discrete properties of all architectural ma-
terials is essential. Meaningful material provides meaningful expression. Today’s contemporary materials are meant to expose
physical appearance inherent in material.

Structure (Joining technique)

After design development and after choosing a meaningful material, putting them together in proper order enhances visual as
well as physical quality. Advanced techniques of connec-tions and physical properties of material helps in innovation and en-
hancing spiritual qualities of the joint. Practical aspects of fixing pieces of building material leads to enhancing constructability
of the joints as well as expressive construction.

Dimensions

Scale is another most influential tool for generating detail. It can provide visual as well as technical depth to the design.
Proportions and sense of realism comes into the design development when we incorporate scale in the drawings.

Drawings

Drawings are helpful to visualise the joints and polish them. The notion of visual perception, proportions we can perceive from
drawings before erection of construction. Drawing is a medium where you can put information regarding visual appearance,
and contribute the value of construction. A drawing of detail makes it easy to construct amateur Ideas. Practicing detail is liter-
ally practicing drawings. Working on detail drawings became one of the basic functions for generating expressive architecture.
