The stains left out of coffee cups, marks of cutters, paint and some scribbling, all were seen mingling together to form some interesting, thoughtless and random patterns on the drawing boards at Aayojan School of Architecture, Jaipur.

Education cannot be merely limited to books and syllabus. One must learn to look around, appreciate, observe, analyse and study from everything that surrounds us. Specific to design education, we must agree the difference in perception, approach to analysis and a personal past background that affects our learning and the way we look at the things.

Following are some pictures of the drawing boards:

Further, I am thinking on ways this can also become an exercise in Basic Deisgn Studio. Have ideas? Feel free to share.

    Respected sir,
    I have been keenly following your blog for a while now, I am student at the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Hyderabad, studying product design I am currently doing my end term graduation project in Mumbai for an office modular manufacturing company,
    Sir I am very keen on getting an architect’s feed back and review regarding office modular furniture, desking systems in particular.
    I wanted to ask about currently prevailing trends in the Indian market, what customers are looking for, and what can be done make a product that is both cost effective and aesthetically pleasing. Competition particularly in modular is tremendous as there are big players like Godrej and Steelcase to local carpenters that constitute the unorganized sector and are in majority.
    Any kind of response will be highly appreciated

    Waiting for you reply,
    Thank you Sir,
    Pulkit Saraswat
