The workshop began with a small scale design problem, where students had to begin by defining their problem statement and refining their architectural intentions. Students were encouraged to explore possibilities in order to have a wider base for creative inputs and a more comprehensive design. Students graphically represented their design decisions for the jury at the end of day one. Students continued to break barriers of their conventional notions of buildings and explored design thinking through physical models.
