The studio discussed and identified the position of craft in contemporary interior architecture practices. With a combination of research and design methods, the studio focused on envisaging future directions of craft productions through design concepts and craft design prototypes. The studio responded to the diverse pluralistic landscape of interior architecture practices in India and positioned craft as one of the forerunners in the design decision making. It delved into various future directions that craft productions can lend to interior practice.
The studio was largely divided into four modules, each emphasizing the learning outcomes of the course; know the contemporary position of craft, ideate a vision for interior practices, develop an individual design position and make relevant design explorations representing the design position.

For spring 2020, each student developed a design proposal for CEPT House 2030 (housing CEPT shop and an added function) reflecting on their individual position of craft+future=?
