"control over the space" is the prime target in
the education on architectural design. Space is colourless.
Space is emptiness. Space is useful. Light is essential to
perceive space. Space can be the headroom or the emptiness
of an atrium. Architectural design produces a variety of spaces.
A balcony projecting outside the building face gives you a
floating experience in space. A domical large space above
our head, when we stand under large enclosures, gives us the
feeling of awe (which is called monumentality). Space is to
be perceived in light. Lesser the light, lesser the amount
of space we perceive. The experience of passing through a
tunnel like space and reaching to large open space is called
as dramatic experience. Atriums give you an awesome experience
of well like space. Lesser the headroom the cosier is the
space. Larger the headroom the more awesome the space. Passages,
corridors, catwalks and floating bridges give you the experience
of "swimming" in space.
space is the most familiar type of space. Orthography of cube
is to be further enhanced by adding more vertical and horizontal
planes. These planes can be further connected by staircases.
Care should be taken to " ventilate " each space
with neighbouring space. Following types of spaces are to
be worked out
room like space
high headroom space
cantilever projections in the space
open playground space
tunnel like space
of the spaces done in the sculpture are synonymous to architectural
spaces. It should stimulate ideas in the mind of students to use
the spaces for various architectural uses like shopping centres,
atriums, childrens play areas, public buildings and so on.
One should imagine as if one is walking through the spaces and is
experiencing the difference in the quantum of the space above the
head. Photographing the model from various angles will be an interesting
