Under the guidance of Ar. Kiran, Assistant Professor of Sigma College of Architecture, our students have designed and developed several still models and designs for low cost housing using bamboo, as part of promoting sustainable living. This project also focused on the diversified utility of bamboo for constructing low-cost, environment-friendly habitats
Students are taken for a live case study to different locations for almost all subjects, where the students will have fruitful discussions with the Architect as well as document the structure of the buildings. This will improve the ability of the students in understanding and designing buildings.
