Semester 06 provides an opportunity for the students to choose their studio, to work alongside design practices with diverse approach to architecture.

This studio aims to set up a disciplinary impetus to the program with considerable emphasis on “space as an outcome of synthesis of details”. It believes that the possibilities of serving architectural knowledge at its core rests on systematic methods of investigation and evaluation of form as an outcome of the manner in which materials organise themselves in a structural system.

Studio Coordinators: Ar Gowtham Srinath
This studio aims to bridge the gap between parametric thinking and environmental optimization in the context of an urban morphology. The studio explores the potential of a mixed use development in cultivating a sense of community at a programmatic level and the potential of building volume and its skin as a response to climate at a morphological level.
Microstudio 3 I Studio Naqshbandhi

This studio will explore the realm where an idea gets transformed into a buildable construction detail. The emphasis on detailing will be equal to the importance given in space making and conceptualizing.
