Course objectives: The course sets out to understand the present architectural condition in India and traces its history to pre and post-independence India by looking at significant cases and architects as well as the social-political setting they emerged from. This is then connected to the birth of modernism in Europe, to its growth into a mature and international style and further to the disruptive emergence of Postmodernism and Deconstruction in questioning meaning and symbolism. This is followed by a discussion on other contemporary approaches to the built- environment. This may be done by taking 10-15 key case examples and a few supporting cases across time, cultures and geographies to connect, distinguish and discern concepts, issues, responses and contexts in the shaping of architecture. 

To develop the ability to critically understand the built environment concepts through history in the 20th and 21st centuries. 

To introduce the connections between the built environment and the social, political, religious, technological and environmental circumstances which shaped modern architecture. 

To understand the idea of ornament & detail, power & politics, form & iconography etc. constantly relating it to modern life – places and practices through Studio-on-Wheels. empirical methods

ARC552 - LOGIC OF STRUCTURES - FORM FINDING (2021 Batch)

Total Teaching Hours for Semester:75
No of Lecture Hours/Week:5
Max Marks:100
Credits:03

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

The course helps the students recognize the relationship between a particular building programme or function, its material culture, economics and its related form-structure. For a long span structure, certain materials are more appropriate. And certain techniques and technologies will enable them more easily. Some materials may make the project a bit more expensive. Conversely, some types of structure are more suitable to a particular material. But structure and material choice may also drive the form generation of the architectural design. For example, a brick roof structure can be a vaulted roof on a prayer hall, but such a form-structure deeply influences the scale and architectural character of the building. This understanding can lead to the discovery of appropriate form and structure for a particular design project based on aspirations and contextual issues.

Course objectives:

● To recognize the relationship between materials, form and structure in shaping architecture.

● To learn to analyse from architectural cases, the logic of form, structure and material and the related influence of these on its architectural character.

● To develop a logical and intuitive design thinking on the selection of structural form for a particular architectural programme and the consequences of such a choice on the architectural character

Course Outcome

CO1: Students will develop an intuitive understanding of behaviour of structure in terms of materials, form and applied forces. Level: Basic

CO2: Students can comprehend the structural system of a physical object, especially a building. Level: Intermediate

ARC742D - BEHAVIOURAL ARCHITECTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY - BASIC (2020 Batch)

Total Teaching Hours for Semester:60
No of Lecture Hours/Week:4
Max Marks:100
Credits:3

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

Course objectives:

Although we do not always recognize it, we are deeply affected by the physical world around us. To understand our daily experiences, we must consider our relationship to our surroundings more carefully. In this course, we will explore the nature of people’s interrelationships with space and place. We will consider just how our environment affects our daily lives, our behaviours, and feelings, and how we, in turn, help shape and influence our environment. This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring people in a physical context, bringing together elements of the social sciences (psychology, anthropology, sociology) and the design disciplines (architecture and urban planning) to provide a richer understanding of the complex dynamic between people and their physical surroundings. This course will explore the nature and nuances of interrelationships between people and their surroundings by examining an array of critical issues in environmental psychology. Here, the environment is broadly defined to include not only our physical surroundings (both natural and built) but also the larger, socio-cultural and political milieu in which we live.

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

Course Objective:

The studio engages the student to conceive and formulate a design project and provide a solution, aptly

demonstrated through supporting research. The design project can be of any scale and size (in terms of

built area) as long as the required rigour and depth is demonstrated by the student to merit

consideration as a final project. The course encourages architectural design projects and projects at

planning scale to be avoided. It is expected that all genres of projects (study or design) would end with

a design solution. The maximum weightage for study will be 30% in the case of a Study + Design

Project. All projects should be grounded in critical enquiry. The course will be conducted as a studio

with individual guidance of a mentor.

Note:

The requirements pertaining to the handicapped, elderly people and children are to be addressed in

design.

At the time of Viva examination, the student shall show to the jurors the portfolio containing the

evolution of his/her design from the beginning to the final output. All the drawings and reports shall be

certified by the Head of the Department as bonafide work carried out by the student during the

semester.

The Course Objectives are:

To understand the context, issues, and opportunities of an architecture project holistically

To demonstrate a comprehensive design project in the built environment

Level of Knowledge : Expert

Course Outcome

CO-1: Ability to demonstrate an ability to comprehend the nature of architectural problem and create a brief which sets the frame work for design.

CO-2: Ability to demonstrate an advanced level design ability to convert the brief set forth earlier into a speculative proposition of design. Level: Intermediate

CO-3: Ability to articulate and delineate the propositions of design into an architectural solution addressing all the dimensions. Level: Intermediate
