The focus is on specific challenges faced in work-place design - fostering a work culture, productivity, occupant health and well-being, layout flexibility, etc. This studio also explores the complex programmatic inter-relationships that are usually part of work-place design. Study of different types of work-places / office environments and emerging design thinking Work-flow analysis and relationships, appropriately addressing all components of the project brief Focus on use of design to create / enhance desired work culture, functional efficiency, indoor environment, energy efficiency, occupant health and well-being Explore possibilities of design flexibility for alterations / modifications that may be required to be done To provide a thorough understanding of the specific requirements of large Offices spaces To provide exposure to contemporary workplace design thinking and innovations To understand the technical aspects and building systems & services required in large offices To understand the critical aspects related to indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency, statutory codes and compliance related to health and safety To convey that space design can go beyond the brief and add value to the project and its stakeholders Case-studies (primary and secondary) Classroom instruction / lectures for specific topics Studio-based design exercises One-to-one discussions with instructor To student will demonstrate knowledge about functional efficiency and activity relationships in an Office space The student will apply to his/her design, the leanings from innovative and contemporary approaches to workplace design The student's design will integrate technical knowledge about services and systems The student's design will be compliant with applicable statutory codes and regulations The student will be able to approximately calculate the energy consumption of the designed space The student will demonstrate the ability to use space design as a tool for creating an exciting and innovative work-place that not only satisfies the project brief, but adds further value to it
This course focuses on equipping students with tools and techniques to prepare a technically correct working drawing/ production drawing.The students will learn the need and importance of working drawings and then develop the ability to read and understand such drawings. Further the student will learn and develop the skill to prepare a set of working drawings for the design of a given residential space.
This course introduces the students to Ergonomic Studies for human-centric space design. Students carve out spaces based on the ergonomic studies from simple cave-like living spaces to complex volumetric space. It emphasizes the importance of ergonomics in the design for user-friendly interior and exterior spaces.
The main purpose of the Capstone Project is for the students to learn the application of the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course of the programme to a real life issue involving actual data in a realistic setting. During the phase of the project, students are mentored to go through the entire process of finding a solution to a real-world urban issue.
The proposed course deals with interfacing, designing and programming various gadgets with the help of Arduino and its species. Students will learn basic programming and electronics used in for smart Automated Products which are very much needful from the design perspective. In this majority of things will be hand on e.g. circuit making on breadboard, soldering, programming, debugging and simulations. The course includes digital I/O, analog I/O, sensor interfacing, actuator interfacing, and electro-mechanical measurements. Students are require to download Tinkercad from Autodesk (open Source) and join my class Using Class ID which I will provide. (For learning online) . At the end of the course students will be asked to design a 100% fully functional project based on UX/UI, interaction design, electronic product design, robotics and many more.
A good technical presentation of design is must to make someone understand the design.This course imparts skills related to the preparation of drawings meant for execution of work at a residential site.Necessity & understanding of working drawings, suitable drawing scales, standards of preparation of plans, sections, elevations & details, methods of showing dimensions. Details of all interior space making and functional elements with specifications & details for loose furniture, false ceilings, partitions & paneling, etc and of spaces like kitchens, bathrooms, toilets etc incorporating material, hardware, fixtures, fittings, colour, texture and standards from industry. Initiating and maintaining a material library of materials used in residential interior space,i.e plywood, glass, steel, hardware, sanitary ware, finishes, stone etc.
Neighbourhoods of a city form the smallest unit of a city. A typical neighbourhood comprises of various landuses and related activities. Though similar every neighbourhood is unique in its own sense in terms of the juxtaposition of buildings and the resultant human activities. In addition how the inside of the building is used, in an urban context, what happens between the buildings is more important. The public realm is what gives every neighbourhood its uniqueness and its soul.
The aim of this studio would be to enable students:
- How to become of the aware of the tools for mapping and visual representation of an urban area necessary to begin a creative exploration and critical evaluation and to be able to discuss possible design solutions.
- To learn how to experience the public realm through observation, to explore the intellectual, usability and aesthetic content of various elements that define a public area.
- To gain fluency in the skills involved in urban mapping, using a range of media that include free-hand and observational drawing, scaled and measured drawing, drawing by computer, physical model-making, and photography. And also to learn which tools to use where.
This studio prepares the student to understand and address the challenges of designing a large Office space that includes different types and scales of activities. The aim is to provide skills for designing medium to larger scale office projects with emphasis on space making, elements of enclosure, and creating efficient and innovative workplace environments. Learning about and incorporating interior services like HVAC, lighting, electrical power, fire safety, security, statutory codes, etc. which play an important role in establishing efficiency, safety and aesthetics of an office. It also looks at specific challenges faced in work-place design - fostering a work culture, productivity, occupant health and well-being, etc.
The course on Project Formulation and Finance focuses upon the identification, formulation, and design stages of an infrastructure development project cycle. It provides emphasis and guidance regarding setting project objectives and reviewing alternative approaches to solve a given development problem. It understands and emphasizes the involvement of multiple stakeholders from the outset of project identification. The program thoroughly explores the inner and outer dimensions involved in the working of project logistics, constraints, risks, execution and management necessary to deliver projects within the expected scope. The course aims at developing a logical framework which can be employed as a tool for project formulation, evaluation, financing, appraisal and management.
The course is aimed towards providing substantial foundation and background for urban development project finance. The students would receive a practical and indepth understanding of several urban development projects through lectures, activities, case studies, financial modelling and guest lectures. Students will be introduced to several key financial terms and would gain an understanding of the financial rewards generated from several projects. They will also be able to prepare project financial statements
The course provides the students with design skills to generate newer form ideas, using the Principles of
Design. The focus is to study this through 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional form manipulations in various
The course lays foundation in the development of abstract forms and
appreciation of the forms in product development process.
The focus of this course is to teach students CAD software like Fusion 360. Students will explore and
expand their design experiences by various 3D composition exercises at the same time analyzing the
same. This course will help them to execute their ideas into digital CAD format. Few advance tools like
rendering can also explored under this course structure.
