The student batch of 2015 visited two villages in Pollachi, Coimbatore during January 2017 as part of their Rural Settlement Study, to study, document and analyse the built environment and settlement patterns.
The students further explored the use of clay in evolving fluid forms and thoroughly enjoyed the fruitful workshop with high-spirited delight. Art Studio Mr.Vinoth Kumar from CAAD co-ordinated the workshop and ensured the essentials in order and the effective participation of one and all.
The entire study was divided into 2 sessions. On site, the students studied the building thoroughly by measuring it and preparing various sketches. The second session focused on the importance of documentation where the students translated the sketches done on site in the form of floor plans, elevations, sections, details, etc.,
On the occasion of Teacher’s day, Independence Day and Madras Day, a series of themed events were organized at CAAD. Students took part in elocution and poster-making competition based on the themes and presented their views about teacher-student dynamics in a debate.
