Course Objective:
• To introduce the challenges and skills of designing buildings and circulation systems on hills /sloping sites
• To build special attitudes and skills for designing for traditional, vernacular and rural environments.
a. Identifying unique attributes of such environments
b. Identifying development issues of such societies
c. Creating context-responsive designs

Course Content:
• Project One: Design of a small group of buildings on a sloping site, with focus both on building design as well as vehicular and pedestrian circulation (4-5 weeks).
a. Projects could include a resort, group housing, artists’ commune, institutional, commercial or recreational complexes.
b. Introduction to Design Project should be preceded by lectures on (i) understanding / reading contoured maps and, (ii) illustrated case examples of buildings and small groups of buildings
• Project Two: Designing for traditional, vernacular and rural environments (8 weeks). The project is to be undertaken in groups of 4-6 students and would comprise the following stages:
a. Identifying unique attributes of the chosen environments -- Study and documentation of the chosen environment, including aspects of settlement design, design of public / open spaces, design of buildings, construction systems, passive climate control systems, etc.
b. Survey & identification of development issues within the chosen example
c. Formulation of design project/s
d. Design Proposal (in various stages)
• At least one special lecture on the subject by an eminent architect should be arranged during the course of the semester.
