OBJECTIVES

  • To introduce various aspects involved in the construction of buildings through the understanding of different types of architectural and technical drawings.
  • To enable the understanding of architectural design as integrating spatial and technical concerns.
  • To enable development of an architectural design project into schematic drawings through integrating concerns of structure, construction and services.
  • To create architectural drawings for construction and as a base for structures and services drawings.
  • To design, incorporate and detail architectural and interior components of the architectural design project.

UNIT I

UNDERSTANDING ARCHITECTURE THROUGH BUILDING DRAWINGS                                                 12

Understanding architecture as a physical, workable product through study of comprehensive set of drawings for any live building project, interpreting them and presenting their characteristics through seminars/ assignments. The drawings to be studied should include architectural working drawings from macro to micro scale- site plan, building plans, staircase details, kitchen and toilet detail of joinery, etc., structural drawings and service drawings to include electrical, plumbing, mechanical and HVAC details.

UNIT II

SCHEMATIC DESIGN INTEGRATING ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN WITH STRUCTURAL AND SERVICE CONSIDERATIONS                                                    18

Evolving a conceptual design project into schematic design, balancing different technical considerations. Considerations to include appropriate structural, plumbing, electrical, mechanical and HVAC systems. Working out schemes to decide and finalize on the best possible design that integrates everything together. Scale of the project could be small to medium and include any typology, involving a newly created, quick, simple design or an older design from previous academic years.

UNIT III

ARCHITECTURAL WORKING DRAWINGS                 18

Preparation of architectural working drawings for the resolved schematic design. Drawings to include site plan, center line drawings, building drawings, detailed drawings of specific areas like staircases and wall sections, dimensions explaining the various components, joinery schedule.

UNIT IV DETAILED DRAWINGS OF ROOMS AND ARCHITECTURAL COMPONENTS                              15

Design and preparation of detailed drawings of joinery including doors, windows and ventilators. Design and preparation of layouts of service intensive rooms like kitchens and toilets. Design and detailing out of floor, wall and ceiling finishes/ construction/ laying.

UNIT V

DETAILED DRAWINGS OF BUILT IN COMPONENTS  12

Design and preparation of detailed drawings of built in furniture and components based on the room/ typology to include counters, cabinets, wardrobes, storage, fittings and fixtures, display units,workstation.

TOTAL: 75 PERIODS

OUTCOME

An understanding of all the aspects that go into the making of a building through study of drawings related to construction.

Ability to resolve spatial concerns with technical aspects of a building.

Ability to design and detail components within a building.
