My future studio-Rishi Vora
The whole idea revolves around taking a rational approach to architecture. More over questioning that approach. Why does architecture have to answer a 'why'? Why can't intuition be taken to the highest level to control our decisions? Why can't the process, what i mean is every single act; conscious or other-wise be responsible for the exact being of something in the present? It is due to all that has happened in the past that I am the way I am and so are we all. Why can't architecture be a literal record of this detailed journey.
In this the reflexes take over the mind. The mind being conscious that it can only curn out what is put in....here tries to manipulate itself....and starts without any particular image or goal or a fixed aim or a fixed object and tries to manifest the journey. Irrationality taken to the extremes, that does not mean it cannot be justified, the theory of manipulation is a strong theory. In architectural study it has taught me that any thing is justifiable. Since abstraction has no fixed reference, it is like a sphere, it can be seen from all directions yet it would appear a circle. Anyways, so in a way justification is irrelevant. That's according to me. So, its debatable.
This studio is a complete expression of this thought process, its chaotic, intuition based but records the process better; better than the thought that concentrates on the end product.
Moreover, it also traps the symbolics of the guys who have influenced my architectural mind. The only opening helps to identify the singularity within a chaotic environment. Those pointed columns are the way they are because of the idea discussed above. 3 main service blocks. Those small things in front are the parking block,the gray ramp leading to the studio...2 main design blocks. These are some technical details.
I do this in class profs would have failed me. So, I had to do this now. Ten years down the line I might still look at this and perhaps laugh. It is a complete manifestation of my present ever changing architectural understanding; nothing more it is at least successful in trapping and freezing that energy.
So, guys what do u feel about it.......waiting eagerly. Bye
