Understanding Micromegas 

The Micromegas series of 10 drawings is named after a satirical story by Voltaire.


“An architectural drawing is as much a prospective unfolding of future possibilities as it is a recovery of a particular history to whose intentions it testifies and whose limits it always challenges. In any case, a drawing is more than the shadow of an object, more than a pile of lines, more than a resignation to the inertia of convention.” 

These drawings will be the basis of the form exploration exercise for the students. The given one drawing is divided into 42 parts and all models will come together to make one whole.

The students followed the following steps :


1. Recognize planes, shapes, forms of the given (part) drawing by studying it. 
2. Identify elements/ parts of the drawing for exploration.
3. Hands on development of the form.

3-Dimensional Exploration Of Drawings

Process Sketches 

Exploring microcosms within the ‘Micromega’ constructed i.e. the model built in stage 1, based on the various narratives from the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. Each student is assigned a chapter from the book which will be the basis of their visual exploration of the Microcosm documented through the medium of videography and photography. 

The perceived scale of the Microcosm will be left to the imagination of the individual student, and so will be the act of the microcosm.

Finding Invisible cities

Formwork

We live in the world of forms and shapes, and all the creatures in the universe, natural and man-made objects are made up of infinite number of forms and shapes. Everything possesses a form in one way or another. Form in architecture not just plays a very crucial role but it is probably the most debated subject as well. It is not just simply the shape or configuration of a building or object but it comprises of lot many elements be it a point, line, plane or a volume. 

The focus of the orientation workshop is to make the students explore and understand the basic elements like line, shape, form and texture and to work on creating new forms using elements in 2dimension (2D) and 3dimension (3D). This will help students gain a hand-on experience in developing forms, explore process and form finding. 

These activities are the basis for systematic, open-ended explorations of form. Using a specific material, the students have to make a model/ 3D form by interpreting the given 2D drawings. The objective of the workshop is to focus on exploring form and learning basic techniques for form making. Students are expected to try new methods and, when appropriate, build on previous studies. They also have to work through the inevitable ebb and flow of the creative process. 

The main takeaways will be the ability to imagine form and use alternative methods of visualizing concepts. And there is the added layer of materiality and tactile experimentation that directly translates into working in spatial environments and 3d design.
