Sustainable Architecture

The current day building is largely based on the materials resultant from the surroundings around us i.e., the environment. Construction behavior use the forms of energy and the natural resources on a large scale with the making of huge quantities of by-products. This is leading to the utilization of the assets of the earth on a much faster rate than the regeneration of these resources. Similarly the production of tonnes of by-products is introducing redundant materials into the environment as a result, further polluting it. The present day world is experiencing a number of problems like the different kinds of pollution (air, water, land and noise pollution), shortage of the natural resources etc. All this highlights the very need of protecting the environment and preserving it for the future generations, points towards the high need of adopting a sustainable way of construction and architecture.

Green architecture is a method of design that minimizes the impact of building on the environment. Green architecture is an outcome of a design which focuses on increasing the efficiency of resource use.

Sustainability means creating an economic system that provides for quality of life while renewing the environment and its resources.

Green buildings incorporate energy and water efficient technologies that are not as readily available in traditional buildings. These technologies create a healthier and more comfortable environment as they utilize renewable energy, reduce waste, and decrease heating and cooling expenses.

Sustainable design is not restricted to new build properties. There are many government scheme that make these sustainable upgrade more attractive and inexpensive for homeowners and business owners alike. It can also be applied to existing buildings to make them more energy-efficient. Solar panels, insulation, and newer, low-energy heating systems are all simple and effective ways of making a property more ‘green’ in design and operation.

The most sustainable buildings are the ones that are designed and overseen by green architects from the theoretical step onwards. Innovative and unique eco-friendly designs can be implemented into practically every stage of the process, allowing these architects to create a building that consumes little energy while utilizing the most advanced methods that sustainable technology can offer.

WHY CHOOSE ARCHITECTURE ?

1. You will become a luminous Problem Solver.

Architecture school teaches you to take a pile of data and information and understand it to inform how to design a building or solve a problem.

The answers never come right away, they come through examination of the problem and many many version of trial and mistake until inward at a perfect key.

This is called the design process.

The same plan process and logic used to design a building can be used to solve many problems that have zilch to do with architecture.

Once you learn and discover what your design process is, it will change how you move toward troubles in all areas of life.

2. You will Travel The planet

Everyone who studies architecture must travel around how populace live in other parts of the world.

Even quarrel that people don’t even know what architecture is, until they have gotten out of their bubble and visited buildings on the other side of the world to see how other populace live and interrelate with their environment.

Agra Tour

The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned from 1628 to 1658), to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 17-hectare (42-acre)complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenellated wall.
Construction of the mausoleum was essentially completed in 1643 but work continued on other phases of the project for another 10 years. The Taj Mahal complex is believed to have been completed in its entirety in 1653 at a cost estimated at the time to be around 32 million rupees, which in 2015 would be approximately 52.8 billion rupees (U.S. $827 million). The construction project employed some 20,000 artisans under the guidance of a board of architects led by the court architect to the emperor, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri.

The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 for being “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage”. It is regarded by many as the best example of Mughal architecture and a symbol of India’s rich history. The Taj Mahal attracts 7–8 million visitors a year. In 2007, it was declared a winner of the New 7 Wonders of the World (2000–2007) initiative.

Fatehpur Sikri
Fatehpur Sikri sits on rocky ridge, 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) in length and 1 km (0.62 mi) wide and palace city is surrounded by a 6 km (3.7 mi) wall on three sides with the fourth bordered by a lake. The city is generally organized around this 40 m high ridge, and falls roughly into the shape of a rhombus. The general layout of the ground structures, especially the “continuous and compact pattern of gardens and services and facilities” that characterized the city leads urban archaeologists to conclude that Fatehpur Sikri was built primarily to afford leisure and luxury to its famous residents.

The dynastic architecture of Fatehpur Sikri was modelled on Timurid forms and styles. The city was built massively and preferably with red sandstone. Gujarati influences are also seen in its architectural vocabulary and decor of the palaces of Fatehpur Sikri. The city’s architecture reflects both the Hindu and Muslim form of domestic architecture popular in India at the time. The remarkable preservation of these original spaces allows modern archaeologists to reconstruct scenes of Mughal court life, and to better understand the hierarchy of the city’s royal and noble residents.
It is accessed through gates along the 5 miles (8.0 km) long fort wall, namely, Delhi Gate, the Lal Gate, the Agra Gate and Birbal’s Gate, Chandanpal Gate, The Gwalior Gate, the Tehra Gate, the Chor Gate, and the Ajmeri Gate. The palace contains summer palace and winter palace for Queen Jodha.

• Buland Darwaza: Set into the south wall of congregational mosque, the Buland Darwaza at Fatehpur Sikri is 55 metres (180 ft) high, from the ground, gradually making a transition to a human scale in the inside. The gate was added around five years after the completion of the mosque c. 1576-1577 as a victory arch, to commemorate Akbar’s successful Gujarat campaign. It carries two inscriptions in the archway, one of which reads: “Isa, Son of Mariam said: The world is a bridge, pass over it, but build no houses on it. He who hopes for an hour may hope for eternity. The world endures but an hour. Spend it in prayer, for the rest is unseen”. The central portico comprises three arched entrances, with the largest one, in the centre, is known locally as the Horseshoe Gate, after the custom of nailing horseshoes to its large wooden doors for luck. Outside the giant steps of the Buland Darwaza to the left is a deep well.

Learning in the field of architecture is not restricted to the classrooms, it’s beyond that, it’s actually experiencing the Architectural Marvels in reality. This was done when our institute organised a trip to the two very prominent cities of Royal Rajasthan, that are White city-Udaipur and Golden city-Jaisalmer.
Udaipur, also known as City of Lakes amazed us with it’s City Palace architecture and the beautiful pichola Lakes views.

Jaisalmer on the other hand made us experience thar desert and The 2nd largest living fort of Sonar was among the major attractions.
Both the places have there own history which is inspirational and motivational in many terms. There was the perfect blend of nature and monuments that could be seen in everywhere.
Lifestyle of the royalties living in these forts and palaces was worth knowing.
We all were privileged to explore the land of Maharaja’s. We bow down to the *God’s own place-Rajasthan*.
