Department of Architecture and Planning - Workshops

Department of Architecture and Planning, IIT Roorkee has the state-of-the-art machines; hand tools and the infrastructure developed over a long period of time. In the future, the department aspires to procure the most advanced equipment to carry out design experiments, based on material research. The department has been organising workshops that focus on materials; art, craft & technology; interior-architecture; and innovations. These workshops are hands-on and provide practical know-how of working with various materials, thus developing creative skills in form evolution, using techniques of model and craft making. Alternate materials and technologies are also explored, as they equip the students with a better understanding towards the changing global scenario and climate concerns.

These workshops are usually conceptualised in four parts:

a) Awareness through Expert Lecture
b) Hands-On Exposure
c) Conceptual Development through Brainstorming
d) Prototype Development/Application
