NIT VI Sem Architecture Syllabus
SYLLABUS FOR FIVE YEARS B.ARCH. DEGREE COURSE
Subject:- Architectural Design-IV
This program gives special emphasis on role of technology in architecture. The design projects to be dealt in the studio should respond to the importance of structure, services and acoustical treatments.
Exercises related to public buildings i.e. commercial centre, hospital, auditorium, cinema, sports complex & educational buildings on sloping/flat sites. Study and incorporation of building byelaws should be complete in this Semester.
Simultaneously, stress should be given on the interior treatment of small and large spaces. Freedom in design is to be given with preliminary introduction of importance and role of byelaws in building design. Minimum one time problem is to be attempted in class, in addition to the major design problems.
Sessional will be in the form of drawings and models along with Technical report for the design dealt. The evaluation shall be done in intermediate reviews consisting of internal and external experts. There should be regular site visits to buildings, dealt in studio problems, so as to document them with the help of photographs, slides, videocassettes etc.
