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.
COCHIN MATTANCHERRY PROJECT
As a part of the curriculum, the current final year students have worked on the Cochin Mattancherry Area
Project for urban study. The students have studied the area and submitted a proposal for the development
of this area. All the study sheets and models were presented to eminent Architects and displayed in the
FORT COCHIN URBAN DESIGN PROJECT
The Project seeks a comprehensive vision for the site, to facilitate high quality and innovative
urban design and addressing the future challenges while enhancing the community’s quality of life
and economic prosperity. It is a multi-layered project and therefore requires multi-disciplinary
design skills such as Innovative design thinking, urban design as an integrated social-economic
and ecological design challenge, Strategic urban planning & principles, assembling and leading
multidisciplinary ideas comprising a diversity of disciplines, landscape architecture, urban design,
planning, transport planning, sustainable design and community.
Active contribution is ensured through various real-time projects using innovative techniques and tools, practice-based learning
in the design studio and promote them
to recognize real-life opportunities, in which they can act confidently and creatively, to open up their future career corridors.
