I am thinking as "An Architecture for Humanity" as topic for my thesis.

The topic includes sub title-

  1. Passage throug India- It includes a museum showing incredible India.
  2. A Community Center for humanity- Includes structure like Matru-Mandir, Library,Amphi-Auditorium for the programs like Art Of Living.
  3. Re-arranging the mind sets through nature & ayurweda- includes landscaping & naturetheorphy.

I want to desigen the campous which impacts on todays youth, stressed generation who don't know the "REAL INDIA & OUR POWER" in our colorful culture.

I want to wake up those people who are forced to live under a wrong mentality by their own wish.

Is that topic good? Can i work better on it? If anyone has some additional or different views then please help me...

To - Sunil Kraleti, Trainee Architect @ Kakani Associates, Ahmedabad.

Firstly, thanks for the reply.

Now, i want to say that 'ARCHITECTURE FOR  HUMANITY' (campus with museum,audi-amphi,library,humanity centre,naturotheraphy center) is a proposal. Its a program or a thought to develop such a campus in which each acitivity or atmosphere forces the visitor to think that "what they think about their country, about the society, about the people, is right or not.." & i think the stuctures like Matri-Mandir & Amphi-Audi for the programs like "Art of Living" will surely make the visitors at least one time to think about their approch to life...

I think that SUCH campus will help to purify the YOUTH thoughts, increase the REAL respect about  INDIA, it will help to release the stresses of today's 'Busy Man'..(through landscape & naturotheraphy center).
  
Now i like to tell on your this comment -"i feel architecture for humanity is not gonna change the attitude". My reply is-"immediately fascinating" is both, the strong & weak point of todays youth. Now its creator's responsibility that their this habit should be a strong point for them. So i think that SUCH CAMPUS WILL DEFINATELY AFFECT ON YOUTH'S MIND because of the atmosphere, program & visual feelings which does matter. And through this topic i want to create the SPACE for such atmosphere, program & visual feelings.

As for an initial concept, it looks good.

But the real story will begin when you start linking your places. How your campus will be linked with museum, audi and natureotherapy center. You will have to strengthen your idea of "Architecture for Humanity" by zoning them accordingly.

Proposing this type of concept makes people feel that you really are going into the details of the real problems existing in society. And if architecture can even help to solve these problems (even to a small extent), what better could it be?

It can turn out to be a good thesis if done correctly.

Thanks for sharing your ideas and best of luck !

Thanks for the reply Rohit...

'Making things happen' is not so easy but if we are honest with our thoughts & ready to work up to our hightest limit then the conditions wil be formed for us to reach upto that level.

As i explained in my 1st post "The Architecture for Humanity" is explained under 3 sub-titles. It is linked with human phychology. Here the purpose of community centre is forced on visitors-

  • By visual effects (through museum,art gallery).
  • By audio effects (audi,amph,library)
  • By making their mind empty (through yoga,mediation,& natural-ayurwedik progm.)
  • By filling empty mind wit true thoughts (through divine structure)

To accept new thoughts, our mind should be free from the slug of stress & unhealthy thoughts. Then we will be prepaired to reach that divine level. Above explained phychological program can occur in any order but it will give strong impact on visitors mind...

Here i am giving the reason of adding mentioned function in my topic...

Yes, i will have to strengthen my idea of "Architecture for Humanity" by zoning them accordingly. But now i am in primary stage, i have not submitted my synopsis even. So i can modify it, thats why i am discussing with you people. You can suggest me some new points because my thesis submission is in march 2011. So i have better time to work out on it.

So u can suggest me some new conceps, or some new aditions, new activity, casestudies, images, information, project, regarding  my topic?
