Expeditions in Non-Metal

Modern built spaces are far more customised, ergonomic and waste-free. In the evolution of it, new building materials and new processes, in addition to new ways of thinking have played a significant role. The studio, “Expeditions in Non-metal” was an exploration of how different kinds of non-metals can be utilised for various purposes in the making of a purpose-built space. The task undertaken was insightful in learning the various kinds of non-metal materials, manufacturing processes & their applications for various purposes. It has also been helpful in conceptualising the space through sketching, technical drawing, 3D modelling, prototyping etc. while applying the PDS and attempting aesthetic refinement.
