In response to the devastating earthquake in Nepal in April 2015, GCRS Global-Building Love Disaster-aid Material Trade Center, China, hosted an architectural competition all around the world to design reconstruction projects as a part of their GARS-NEPAL.TIBET Earthquake Emergency shelter.
Richa Jadhav and Akash Relkar, final year B.Arch students from our college secured third rank amongst 340 participants all around the world, under the category of GARSA1 temporary shelter than can be rapidly and massively reproduced.
The students proposed an innovative and cost effective design solution that was based on a r.c.c. drainage pipe used as a module. The concrete drainage pipes have many advantages such as easy availability, strength, zero maintenance, optimum functional space etc. These pipes need no construction labour on the site. They just need to be oriented and installed as per design requirement in a right way. Six Clusters of these pipes shelters were made to create public, semipublic and private court areas. The courts formed by these clusters were covered using canopies of waterproof fabric.The purpose of these courts was creating a sorted flow public, to avoid chaos and maintain a hygienic atmosphere. Facilities of sufficient sanitation, vehicular access, gatherings spaces for food supply and health care camps were taken care of for all the clusters.
The use of pipes is a complete low cost effective notion to be used as the pipes to be used as the temporary shelter can be sent back for the purpose it is made for i.e. drainage and water supply systems.
A team of third year students of Product Design won 1st position for the styling competition of Kent RO water purifying system for Indian elites by Kyoorious Design Competition.
A Transportation Styling Workshop Was Conducted By Designer Vishal Jagtap For Students To Participate In Siam - Vehicle Styling Competition.
Ar. Umesh Hirawe, faculty B. Arch received Jury Award, ‘Outstanding Concrete Structure – 2015’, for residence design at Nashik, under the category of ‘Individual Residence’. The competition was held by Ultratech Cement and ACCE Nashik at city level in Nashik. Around 60 architects and civil engineers from all over the city of Nashik participated in the competition under 3 different categories, viz. Individual Residence, Multi dwelling and Commercial. The jury panel consisted of eminent architects, civil engineers from and technical experts from Ultratech Cement Ltd.
In his project, Ar. Hirawe incorporated advance technologies such as concrete filled tubes, precast concrete fins and customized formwork to achieve curvilinear forms. The planning forms responded well to the functionality of spaces. Courtyard planning complemented overall space quality through enhanced daylight and natural ventilation in the interiors. Ar. Hirawe also addressed ecological concern by retaining 100% existing trees on site.
