Our world is changing rapidly and beset with developmental issues involving growth, sprawl, economic stagnation and stratification, a dearth of open space, congested transport, environmental degradation, as well as socio-cultural isolation. In our continuing search for “sustainable” design and planning solutions, we must consider an array of societal and urban issues. Each graduation thesis tackles the realities of our time in their own unique way.

In Spring 2022, for the final project of the semester, the freshman year students worked on “Two Rooms of Their Own”. The design problem was formulated around a scenario where the university decides to provide spaces for temporary residency to successful students.

Hand Cast Tiny Concrete Beam Workshop
Hand Cast Tiny Concrete Beam Workshop was conducted as a part of Arch 332 Structural Design II course in 2022 Spring semester. As a part of the workshop the students experimented with a model reinforced concrete beam which was produced to 4cm x 4cm x 40cm dimensions. The produced concrete beam was then tested for performance by an experiment setup by applying load to test the performance of the model beam.
