It is still not convincing that the collection of data as analysis never seems to empower the tools for design. However studio was appreciated but larger open-endedness towards the realm of design is still to be plugged. Students enthusiasm were at the best what we have seen in last four years and can be easily claimed to be the best batch we have so far.
My argument is far more convincing at the level of semester III studio. The area under study seems to be much larger than group is capable of handling. The data collection have overpower the intuitive reaction to various opportunity that studio could have offered. As commented by the juror “ It appears more of planning studio than urban design”. Although comments seems slightly harsh but studio at the interim level had immense possibilities & engagement could have been focused on the diagram that students have generated rather than problem solving approach.
