Mariposa Art Center

This studio aims on analysis and design of Steel Structures. Main output of this studio was to design an Art center on a plot in Gandhinagar with both Architecture and Structure terms. Studio journey started with Structural and Architectural Case Study with some Structure & Architecture exercises. Site visit was also done during the semester and than moving onto the final project. Design were made and after finalizing I decided to make a Butterfly roof over site. Mariposa is an Spanish word for butterfly and this site is design with steel as building material. This site was design and analyzed in STAAD-Pro software and than detail structural & architectural drawings were also made and apart from this many more software were also used. 3d rendered models and walkthrough video of entire site is also made.
