To be frank, I was an average student in school but I was one of the top scorer in the National Aptitude Test for Architecture exam, thus giving me an enhancement to learn more about a subject which I like and thrive upon and making me design spaces which creates experience to the users and learn more about architecture. I designed a house with an office room in my first year of my college and i made a model of lobby of the office. a feature where the upper part of facade had a trellis which had art deco pattern on it. As the light penetrated the trellis to reach the curved facade and the ground. To see that in the model in three dimensional made me to explore the concept of light and shade and reconnoiter various facets to make a place experience-able.
The above maxim resonates with me. I was born into a middle class family with ordinary educational background. My father was a first genration college student and took up teaching for high school as profession. My mother completed tenth grade and is a housewife. They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age.
I firmly looked for the greatest stuff which encourages me to lay the foundation during my undergraduate course period. My four years of Undergraduate studies in Information Technology at GITAM University, and my exposure and penchant for research have made the choice of further study for me, an obvious one. My Undergraduate Program had always been a judicious mix of theory and practice. Captivating subjects like Object-Oriented Programming, Database Management Systems, Data warehousing and data mining, Software Engineering, Operating
“If you focus on the design, you can call yourself a Designer and if you focus on the implementation of your design, you can call yourself as an Architect.” - Cameron Sinclair Architecture for me is an art of designing buildings and creating a space that can change the way of living. I belong to a place where Architecture was just a word for over a decade as compared to the present conditions. Being a small town boy, whenever I used to go out for vacations to visit my relatives in Mumbai (India), I was always mesmerized and fascinated with tall buildings, glass facades and their shapes. Since I was always good at creative thinking, I felt closure to building forms and their architecture. I wandered what I could do if I 'm handed the magic wand and asked to design a masterpiece, which inspired me to choose architecture as my course.
As a result, while my friends were taking classes in science and math, I was experimenting with fashion design. I took pattern and sewing class and fashion design class at the Alliance Française Thailande. Not only did I want some basic knowledge in fashion design, but I also wanted to confirm if my decision was right. I was the youngest in my class of 10 and the only one who was still in high school. I had a mixed feeling: I was glad
The first year went by studying the basics. The real engineering started in the second year when I sgot chance to be familiar with the core subjects of civil engineering. My way of gaining knowledge was not to just put up the good marks in the transcript but to go in the depth of the matter and excel it as much as I can. I got to be introduced to “Structural Engineering” in fourth year of my engineering. It was then an elective subject.
These processes affect our emotions, our health, and even the development of memory. “Life Enhancing Architecture has to address all of our senses simultaneously and fuses our experience of self with our experience of the world” Goethe presented this idea about the art work in 1890. This notion is developed later by many scientists and researchers. Architect Juhani Pallasmaa, in his book “The Eyes of the Skin-2005”, reinforced Goethe’s statement and gave a criticism that the visual sense is given primary attention in the built environment and as a result does not allow for most environments to contribute to people’s experience as completely as it could. The dominance of visual sense
The majority of what we do in life is determined by what we are exposed to in differing learning environments as we age. Growing up, I was exposed to a range of different activities in and outside of school which have advanced my learning. Simple things such as having Eric Carle’s 1969 picture book ’The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ read to me before bed, or listening to nursery rhymes are literacies that provide us with essential life experience from a young age. My favourite type of literacies in school were always humanities but in particular, English. My extensive interest in the subject in college gave me the confidence to challenge myself to study more complex ideas like Marxist Theory and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Architecture is more than what the eye sees. We as humans walk into space and buildings without any realisation that we are entering another world metaphorically, where the architect knows exactly where and how you are going to manoeuvre in his/her creation, if it is designed well, because that’s how they created it. Circulation and the arrangement of spaces inside a building, are two of the most key elements in any great piece of architecture and in this essay I am going to study and analyse two totally different buildings with the goal of finding out how circulation and volumetric arrangement affected the design process and its final outcome. The two buildings I have chosen to study are from two great British architects whose work has inspired many up and coming architects; The Lloyd’s building in London, designed by Richard Rogers and built in 1986, which is the home of the insurance institution Lloyd’s of London, until now referred to as “the inside out building” for reasons that will be discussed later in this study. The other being a piece of architecture looked as the epitome of post-modernism, the Neue Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart, which is an art museum designed by James Stirling.
I have joined there to gain practical knowledge in the mechanical engineering field .I had worked here for a period of 4 years. After my graduation I had got an opportunity to work in Career Axes, which is a Designing Based Organization. I had joined in this organization as a Junior Designer. My role was to design the components of petro chemical refineries and power plants’ worked for a period of 2 years .At the time of left as a Senior Designer. My thirst was not satisfied and I want to work in Real time in the production or infrastructure organization so that whatever I have designed in the designing field I can do it in the practical way this lead me to join in the India’s premier infrastructure organization i.e., TATA Projects Ltd.
