Excellence in Architecture: a critical case study

Model made for Fredrick’s House, Jamberoo, Australia by Pritzker Award Winner Architect Glenn Murcutt.

As an assignment to understand the work carried by the great architect, I got lucky to work on project by Architect Glenn Murcutt. Sir has specialized in the making of houses in Australia to their perfection. These are single elegant and environment friendly buildings. I studied Fredrick’s House, Jamberoo, Australia and prepared MDF laser cut model for the same. This exercise had been an eye opener for me.

I published our research work in a book named, Critical Case Studies In Architecture: Fredrick’s House, Australia – Glenn Murcutt and, Parekh House, India – Charles Correa.

Kolkata Wetlands: Ramsar Site. Winter School 2016.

I enrolled for Winter School 2016 program from CEPT University to Kolkata Wetlands: Ramsar site. This piece of land is an important part of the infrastructure of Kolkata. What does it do? Ok. It acts as ecological sanitation for city. This beautiful land cleans sewage of the city. It cleans

the grey water by natural process of fishing and farming. Also whole city’s garbage is dumped into land-fill site. Here it supports garbage farming and recycling of waste. This supplies food to the city at low price. Generates employment for lots of people. We group of students enjoyed and had fun while working……Sharing some moments.
