The bridge studio is a space where the intellectual formalisation of practice begins to configure with the academic space or academic space begins to interact with practice domain. The practice domain is generally perceived as other side of academics with handful information of practical imperatives & awareness towards making of architecture that resonates its purpose & market that sterilises academics. However practice in the context of bridge studio is imagine to be an act of design & construction of building that is deemed to be an academic exercise.
If one looks other way around, only if, practice that reaches out to academics to experiment with the particular aspects of architecture that resonates the act of conflict, deemed unresolved. It is that precise conflict and unresolved condition finds academic space as laboratory for experimentation, where unresolved conflict can emerge in all tones of fresh imaginations, complex reality engages wit…
The Architectural program is often bases its grounding on
three prong approach to formulate comprehensive understanding on architecture
discipline: namely, History & Theory | Technology | design. The discourse
of architectural theory is generally clubbed with history & theory, with assumption
that inquiry system of history or theory of history has same fundamental
principles as architectural theory. The intent is to build the argument that
theoretically architectural theory is a separate discipline. The history often

imperatives and historic-ism/ historiography or through social and cultural imperatives, while architectural theory is a discussion, debate and writing on architectural
trends, pattern or history of ideas including theory of history. Architectural theory is an intellectual
discipline locating self and society while history obscures the cult of

The recent trends of architecture demonstrates the pugnacious departure from disciplined modernism. The traditional notion of creativity is slowly replaced by innovation in technological inputs and tools that generate the forms rather than tools that aids the process of generating one. The sinuous forms, non-structured or non euclidean geometry are encapsulating minds and thoughts into unidirectional understanding of architecture as form making process. Having said that the argument of Aesthetic or delight is not only re-created but formally put in to the realm of hedonism. The architecture has never been so polemic at any stage of its evolution. The only reliable source of justification of the emergence of such architecture is the way cultural ingredient that are induced universally, uniformly and unequivocally across the globe through in-numerous mediums amounting into forced reality.
The sterile or dogmatic ideas are slowly giving away to kinetic notion of architecture, the purity …
