Introduction

This year, the focus of the forum is to proactively articulate the design process, for which we have invited entries from student projects of 5th year of Architecture. These projects help in mapping the journey of an architecture student and also how one develops different lenses through which the design process can be looked at. The projects become the main dialogue generators in the academic front of the architecture community. In order to generate a discourse in this direction, the projects would be organized in three thematic sessions of six projects each. The student presentations would be followed by a curated discussion based on the theme. The common discussion will be a culmination of these ideas, in order to develop an understanding of  the broader perspective of architecture today.
Between Paper and Pixel

Our tools and mediums of exploration are in a state of transition.We see a very large shift towards the use of digital media and tools in various stages of design process. The projects which demonstrate a clear relationship between the tools of exploration and a resolved design would be selected for this theme. Aim here is to reflect on particular tools (digital or manual) that predominantly determines course of design decisions and thus to dissect the student projects for a discourse on our trans-medial status quo of our architectural journey.

Building the Un-built

The design process involves focusing on the development of certain non-material aspects, which are achieved by the means of the ‘unbuilt’.The ‘Unbuilt’ here refers to the ‘voids’ inside as well as outside the building that establish a relationship with the lives of its inhabitants either directly or indirectly.These relationships amongst  spaces, forms and inhabitants, establish the character of the built environment. While some relationships get comprehended at large scales of neighbourhood and city, the others are instrumental in shaping behaviour patterns at small scales. The intention here is to open up discourse that allow students to reflect upon this relationship that the unbuilt has with the built and its inhabitants.

(No) Formulae for Formulation

This theme provides the opportunity to introspect the structure of various design processes. Every student formulates a path for his/her design process through the interpretation of the brief, establishing the intention of his/her design and choosing tools and methods to develop it further. Here, we identify emerging patterns within the structure of these paths to not only reflect upon the journey of the process but also comment on the potential of these patterns.
