Tectonic Operations

The studio focused on equipping students with the skill set of starting with an idea and being able to convert it into a well-detailed architectural system by making conscious decisions at various stages of design development based upon their analysis of the problem and their necessary solutions. This was done through a small design project. Each student individually designed and detailed their respective projects. The overall scheme consisted of 15 projects. This allowed the students to also look at the immediate adjacent conditions and their response to it through necessary negotiations and adjustments. It also allowed for some amount of collective learning and the ability to deal with a situation beyond one's control. The scale of the project allowed the students to quickly design and then detail it out reasonably within the given time frame of the semester. Each project had enough complexity to develop a well-rounded understanding of various layers of constructional process and services.
