Urban Institutes, Jaipur Documentation

Batch 2022

Summary :

Institutions are the kinds of structures that matter most in the social realm. At some stage, we need to consider how institutions structure social interactions and how they are established and embedded. Generally, institutions enable ordered thought, expectation, and action by imposing form and consistency in human activities.

Nestled on the plains of Aravalli ranges, City of Jaipur was designed as per principles of mandala in city planning. This royal city captivates travelers as it is known for its rich culture and tradition, magnificent art and artefacts, and brilliant past, the serene temples, the long-standing forts and palaces. The rulers of the once princely state oversaw the construction of buildings in the city and made sure that they follow the traditional Rajput architectural design.

The aim of this exercise was to explore different architectural characteristics of the institutes in Jaipur and to disseminate the design values with respect to the overall function of each. These institutes were studied based on 10 different aspects of architecture namely, arrangement of spaces, connectivity, form, open spaces, intangibility, image, structure, transition and quality of spaces. These aspects were explored through various scales of physical models and representative panels were made for the same showcasing each element, and how it is used in each design individually.
