Is hand sketching relevant?


Hand sketching is still relevant for architects and student architects. It is a tool to record and explore ideas,to quickly translate them onto paper, directly from one's mind. That process, in spite of all the advances in softwares is still best done using one's hands.

Student architects should focus on developing their hand drawing skills as much as possible, as along with software proficiency, sketching is equally, if not more important.

And it shouldn't be confused with artistic drawing. Architecture sketching is completely different from making pretty pictures. It has more to do with developing ideas, which can be developed further and fine tuned.

The ability to sketch is an important skill which most of the good architects would appreciate while shortlisting candidates for internships and even jobs. So keep improving  your sketching abilities and confidently add those wonderful sketches to your portfolios.

Louvre Abu Dhabi by Jean Nouvel

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is one of the most interesting museums completed recently. Simple detailing and wonderfully executed. Elegant colour scheme and play with materials creates spaces which are simple, yet refined. Light is modulated through an interesting skylight design, which lets in filtered diffused light which is apt for a museum. The scale is monumental, also to accommodate the large sculptures and installations. Overall it is a space which does not try to be over bearing but one which creates a wonderful setting for the art on display, which can also be considered as an art in itself.

Padmanabhapuram Palace in the rains - Part 1 by Sujith.G.S


Padmanabhapuram palace complex is the quintessential example of the vernacular architecture of Kerala and was the abode of the Travancore Royal Family, before Maharajah Marthanda Varma shifted the capital to Trivandrum. The palace complex is a masterpiece - an intriguing play of volumes, scale, spatial planning & courtyards, all of which have a strong underlying cohesiveness. The spaces move from the public spaces on the periphery to the more private spaces as one moves towards the core, reflected through variations in scale & proportion, producing very interesting spaces

I had the good fortune of visiting the Palace complex last week and was greeted by ominous dark grey clouds in the background. I didnt want it to rain, but the skies soon opened up as we were exploring the complex.

And it turned out to be quite an unexpected spectacle. The whole space transforms in the rains. The results are most evident in the spectacular courtyards, where it is a literal waterfall. The sound and feel of the rain transforms the space, adding an additional dimension. Do check out the below pictures. Will come back with much more in Part 2
