Spatial Narrative

Space making is much more than an act of building. It has emotions and expressions. Design is a dialogue where Designer encodes the clues while the perceiver decodes the same. The module wishes to focus on this phenomenon of the space conception and space perception. It wishes to understand the kinaesthetic spatial narrative and fundamentals of space design while exploring the spatial role of space making elements It wishes to understand the impact of basic design decisions of Siting and location, form and massing, movement and organizational structure, choice of elements, material and technique of construction, finishes and entablature. Course wishes to understand elements of nature such as light, vegetation, water and land as spatial elements and their role in space making. Using these as basic tools of space making, design a space that is interactive with its perceiver, which is expressive of emotions and experientially engaging.
