Thanks to LUNA - our collaborators, especially SIMI and VICKY, who have collaborated with us to produce design options for their first phase of LUNA startup. It was a pleasure to host you guys to the final presentation of the design ideas that the students have come up with. Thank you for your time and patience.

The final outputs produced by the students. Students spent an immense amount of work and energy in producing the designs and communicating the same to the clients was a new experience for the students.

As we come to the end of EVENTS '18, the students have worked hard and fun at times on their workbenches. These are the final products by the three competing groups : Construction Booklets that give you an understanding of what the product is?, how efficient they are?; how to build/assemble/store them? and finally the cost and materials to make the product. Good job guys!! A copy of these booklets were given to LUNA (our collaborator) for them to choose the best design from.

It was fun working with the WORKBENCHERS!!

Presentations are being done in front of our Collaborators from LUNA - Simi and Victoria. They seem to be liking the disparate ideas that the groups have come up with. Let us see who wins the competition today. later we will be having personal interview sessions with the groups that will go into the video.

Now that we are heading towards the finishing stage of Events 2018, the 5th years decided to check in on the student works just to guide them in completing their Construction booklets that will be submitted to LUNA on Monday after their presentations. The students had a few issues regarding expressing their designs through the booklets. So we had a sit down with each group and worked on their outputs together.

It felt really good to see some distinct ideas not only in terms of the designs but also in every groups representation of their works.... Good Job guys!!!

So as Fariz was talking about in his earlier post, we have started compiling the videos and interviews to make the Events Video. So as a flow plan, we have interviewed the three main actors in this events - Collaborators(the clients), Coordinators(5th years) and Students (1st & 2nd years), giving us the idea of the overall work brief and experience.

The video will be completed soon guys!!

Hi guys, We wanted you to get to know our collaborators from LUNA. SO there are posts coming up for each of our three collaborators.
Posted 24 Apr 2018 10:44

We got our collaborator in today for the first round of presentations by the students. In the meanwhile we also got a small interview from Ms. SIMI, regarding their perspective of the project brief and how the progress of the various groups are, in her expectations.

She was impressed with the various outputs that the different groups have come up with. Next our students are going to be working on the details of their projects in terms of materiality and costing which is another main focus of this EVENT.

Good job guys !!

The students were reviewed for their presentations by the Masters students. Great work guys!! The concepts that the three groups cam up with were unique and interesting. Now moving forward, we would like you guys to work on your designs with components that assemble to form your design.

Hi guys, I'm Pranav Radhakrishnan, doing my 5th year in MSA. I'm currently in CPU atelier. I did my undergrad in India and worked there for a year after my course. I have worked in about 5 architectural firms with projects ranging from small scale villas and interior designs to large scale projects.

What I like the most about architecture is bringing the most imaginative designs come to life by making it practical and feasible. Through my years of practice I have seen how as architects we create and execute. Apart from architecture well I like to travel and as lame as it may sound, watch a lot of movies.

Hoping to have a great time with you guys! And also to see the great stuff you are going to create!

After our Site visit and discussions on how to get going with our Event, we had a small sit out at a Cafe close to our Site, to discuss the probable risks and liabilities that may come across.Well, we aim to give you guys a harmless and risk-free Working experience whilst having a lot of fun!!!

So we have put together a list of all risks and hazards that we will discuss tomorrow with Becky, alongside itineraries, drawings and probable materials for Events which we will be uploading soon.

Stay tuned for more updates !!!
