NITRaipur III Sem Architecture Syllabus

NIT-RAIPUR

SYLLABUS FOR FIVE YEARS B.ARCH. DEGREE COURSE

 

Subject:- Architecture Design-III

The aim of the course is to emphasis and evolves the methodology for architectural design with reference to the previous knowledge of function and aesthetics. The design should highlight clear approach to the design with concept, Analysis, Synthesis and clarity of details (like barrier free design considerations), along with architectural expression with use of appropriate graphic presentation techniques.

1. The design should be done with

sensitivity towards surroundings i.e. traditional and vernacular architecture, construction techniques and environment.

2. The assignments shall be design of small buildings like nursery schools, restaurants, small nursing homes, small offices, exhibition pavilions, dispensaries, residences, canteens, shops etc.

Two time problems (as class tests) are to be conducted in class other than regular design problems.

Notes:

Sessional will be in the form of drawings and models along with project 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 / case studies of buildings, so as to document them with the help of photographs, slides, etc.
