Thesis introduction

  1. 1. Architectural Thesis Introduction Ar Viapuri Thangavelu Professor- Design chair- SRM Visiting Professor- EXCAP
  2. 2. What is the Thesis Project? Thesis is the culmination of an architectural under graduate program. Test to showcase your individual ability in • 1) Holistic understanding of a design project in an architectural context. • 2) Contextualisation, research and analysis. • 3) Site selection • 4) Focused research and application in the design project • 5) Design process • 6) Design & research documentation
  3. 3. Thesis idea derivation • Type categorisation ↓ • Architectural relevance & expression ↓ • Research scope ↓ • Adaptive design project selection ↓ • Adaptive site preference ↓ • Synopsis
  4. 4. Type categorisation • Programmatic Concerns including hybrid (Architectonics),corporate medical facilities, retailing, entertainment, libraries etc., • Contextual response (environmental concerns)- Developments on ecologically sensitive areas- Hill, Water, Jungle etc., • Contemporary/emerging trends in Architecture- Digital Architecture - Study, analysis & design • Historic Conservation- Preservation of monumental structures, Heritage structures & adaptive reuse • Urban Development– Housing, infrastructure, infill etc., • However, the specific thrust should be architectural design of built environment.
  5. 5. Topic selection criteria • 1) Scale • 2) Research + Extensive design OR Extensive research + Design • 3) Feasibility in terms of scale, data resources, guidance & case studies • 4) Relevance
  6. 6. Stages • 1) Enquiry, research, synopsis & approval. • 2) Study • 3) Site finalisation • 4) Research & report compilation • 5) Design process • 6) Design documentation
  7. 7. Synopsis • 1) Research project type & justify • 2) Establish goals & Objectives • 3) Gather relevant information • 4) Identify strategies • 5) Feasibility (case studies, resources, guidance) • 6) Summarise the program
  8. 8. Study • 1) Data collection a) Design standards b) Development rules & regulations c) Safety standards & norms • 2) Case study ( Literature + Live ) • 3) Literature study on factors influencing your design • 4) Special study on your research topic including literature and live case studies
  9. 9. Site finalisation • 1) Site criteria • 2) Shortlist three probable sites • 3) Conduct site analysis of all three sites • 4) Comparative study appraisal • 5) Finalise site
  10. 10. Report compilation • 1) Introduction + methodology • 2) Compilation of general study inference • 3) Design data generation • 4) Site data • 5) Research data • 6) Prepare detailed design brief Note: Concept & presentation drawings to be added in the end
  11. 11. Design process • 1) Planning of individual spaces (including lighting, ventilation, orientation & thermal comfort) • 2) Planning of zones (with services) • 3) Incorporation of materials structure & technology • 4) Conversion of zones into 3d forms • 5) Site zoning (ingress/egress, road network, building blocks, parking, services & landscape) • 6) Massing study • 7) Conceptualisation • 8) Scheme drawings 1 . . . 2 . . . 3
  12. 12. Scheme drawing requirements • 2d, free hand rendered, site plan, floor plans, elevations, sections & 3d views to prescribed scale. • Single line plans should contain structural logic, orientation, door/window/opening positions, furniture layout, room dimensions & area statement. • Topographical plan to suitable scale. • Site plan should have orientation, dimensioned internal/external road network with traffic flow, pedestrian flow path, building blocks, parking lots, service flow, adjoining areas, buffers, landscape & natural features. External influences should be highlighted. • Block model.
  13. 13. Design documentation • 2d rendered plans with orientation, walls, structural systems, furniture layout, room measurements, landscape etc. • Topographical plan to suitable scale. • 2d rendered site plans to have orientation, dimensioned internal/external road network with traffic flow, pedestrian flow path, building blocks, parking lots, service flow, adjoining areas, buffers, landscape & natural features • Detail drawings- prime spaces & design details in buildings and site • 2d rendered elevations & sections with foundation idea & height measurements • 3d rendered views( interior& exterior) • Detailed models • AV presentation
  14. 14. Desired student attitude • Thesis requires dedication, conviction and a commitment to a strong work ethic • To ensure steady progress and maintain a manageable schedule • Establish regular meetings with the Thesis Guide in order to ensure consistent rigor and progress toward completion • Present material to the Thesis Guide in a manner that effectively allows for reflection, critique and commentary in a timely fashion • Take notes at your meetings to keep track of advice • Engage with Committee members keeping them abreast of progress and utilising their expertise where and when needed • Present required information comprehensively and on time during timely Thesis reviews • Networking- for knowledge resources & external guidance
  15. 15. Thesis types
  16. 16. Programmatic Concerns (including hybrid) • Study of program and programmatic concerns including hybrid programs and new functional types- understanding project program, activity, services & technology • Application of contemporary materials, structures & technology • Project types: 1) Hi-Tech Hospitals 2) Housing complex 3) Aqua Marine Park and Research Centre, 4) Multimedia Film City, 5) Speciality Hospital and Research Centre, 6) Contemporary education facilities 7) Research and Design Institute,
  17. 17. Contextual response • Developments on ecologically sensitive areas- Hill, Water, Forest etc., • Contextual study-Environmental degradation, Conservation, Sustainability concerns and architectural solutions • Geographic study- Adaptable materials & building technology • Project types: 1) Resorts 2) Waterfront developments 3) Tourist infrastructure
  18. 18. Historic Conservation- Preservation- Interventions • Investigations that originate in historical analysis and study of architecture or issues and concerns related to it. Preservationof monumental structures, Heritage structures & adaptive reuse • Project types: 1) Monumental 2) Contemporising architecture of the region 3) Archaeological Survey of . . .– Research and Training Institute
  19. 19. Contemporary/emerging trends in Architecture • Study on contemporary processes in design- Design & techniques, Digital representations, modeling • Digital Architecture - Study, analysis & design • Tools- GIS, Design software • Investigations that explore the implications of spatial, structural, technical, system or material selection and development on architectural expression, qualities, spatial arrangements and/or detailing.
  20. 20. Urban Development • Housing projects • Urban infrastructure (airports, MRTS, transport hubs etc.,) • Urban infill (urban open space development)
