Domesticity is a scale.

Independent of typology, purpose and use, it is a space of belonging. The place to which we belong, the one we inhabit – it is that which gives us a sense of identity and of who we are or who we will be, and who we want to be in this world.
Much of our ability to understand the world comes from this It is within this insight that the Sem III Studio is situated.

In Part one of the studio, students studied and analyzed various projects (mostly iconic houses) so as to understand the underlying concepts and ideas of placemaking, and architectural grammar and syntax.
In the second part, the student was supposed to design an experiential living environment. For this, the student was provided a Verb / Noun List (modified from the original List by Richard Serra) – using which the students performed formal experiments and metaphorical site studies. Both of these exercises came together when the student identified a user / group of users on their chosen site. A program for the living environment emerged from their study and the student was to Design a place for the user(s) to live, using the formal experiments conducted in the earlier exercise.

Sem 3

Learning through building

This course takes forward the elementary learning of the various construction systems and the principles they are based on and aims to establish a foundation to technological and constructional sequences. The objective is to put the focus on the relation of form, materials and the various forces in structure as well as on the corresponding processes that integrate these parameters in the realization of a holistic design idea. The course will explore the understanding of forms, spans and other structural challenges investigating the structural principles that are inherent to them. The optimum and efficient use of materials coupled with responding to the nuances of climate and context will bring about an enhanced learning that posits an ethical, constructional and technological terra firma.

The studio should expose students to various architectural systems that are key to responsible architectural interventions. It will also help students build architectural vocabulary through acts of detailing and form developments.


Part-1: A process that begins with a systematic de-layering of parts or systems of the building. 
•       Walls and Skins
•       Slabs and floors
•       Internal partitions
•       Roofs
•       Plinths / Rafts ?
•       Movements Vertical and Horizontal
•       Any other

Part-2: A semester long activity that will synchronize and coincide with topics that cover architectural building systems and detailing

The Garden of Memory

Objects can signify, evoke emotions, memories and create identities. Their surfaces bear the scars of time, embodying secret histories of touch and of all the spaces that they have journeyed through. We collect objects, inherit them, accumulate them, misuse them and discard them. Objects hold our own personal histories and our memories, and also our desires and fragments of our future selves. In this way, objects challenge our sense of time, and how we belong to its memories. The object or the entry point to these memories/memory space is the interface. The nature of this space(or form) comes from the quality of the interface one enters through. For instance, if you looked at a door, you also remembered the wind that came with it when you opened it. So, to consume this space, it takes you to your own experience of the object and also to experience the memory of the object.
Tracing these histories would trace the memories of everything around it, including the future of that memory. Each student, through their object, will construct an interface that creates order/ illusion/coalition/alliance with the past and the imagined future.

What are the ways in which one can experience and consume this memory space? What are the ways in which this memory space can be accessed through the object? By performing formal operations, how can one actualise it into a physical space?
