The Purpose of Architecture:- Exploring Design Interventions and Strategies

Envisioning ideas is central to architectural practice. In this studio we shall explore methods and ways to visualise spatial set ups within the built environment. Through a series of weekly exercises the studio will develop skills and discover tools to visually represent their observations. Further, through readings, discussions and excursions, the unit will explore historical and contemporary forms formats of visualisations. Study of paintings, renderings, sketches and models will intensely be pursued. The making of drawings - both technical and artistic - is central to visual studies, the studio will invite experts to conduct workshops to develop these skill sets. Visits to architecturally significant places of interest to our study will be organised. Think Mandu or Fatehpur Sikri or Badami !
