  3. 3. LOCATION
  4. 4. • INTRODUCTION  College of Architecture, Chandigarh was designed by Le Corbusier in 1962.  The college is present near the capital complex and is easily accessible from the city.  This college gives degrees in bachelor’s Course of architecture.
  5. 5. • PLANNING AND LAYOUT  The planning is introvert in nature. The studio and classrooms have been grouped together around a Rectangular courtyard.  There are two doubly loaded corridors originating on two ends of the building which Lead from the entrance to the studios and class rooms. The facilities like library, museum, common room, dark room and Administration and faculty rooms are on both sides of these corridors. These corridors are poorly connected to the courtyard through four small openings.  The design studios are on the northern side of the building. Entrance hall is a long rectangle in shape. The Courtyard has not been well linked with rest of the building.
  6. 6. SITE PLAN
  7. 7. FLOOR PLAN
  8. 8. • LINKAGES  There has been no thought of linking studios and the relationship between different classes is quite poor.  Architect has failed to link the courtyard in an active manner with rest of the building. As a result, it is a passive & a dead space.  Corridors and courtyards are poorly linked. Some faculty rooms are very close to studios while, others are far away. Thus, a varying nature of relationship has been generated between students and faculty.  There is little room for inter-faculty interaction corridors which are major circulation arteries of the building help circulation in a very uninteresting and boring manner.
  9. 9. • PLANNING
  10. 10. • LIGHT AND VENTILATION  The classrooms, studios are other spaces deeper on north lights for their lighting. The lighting is good during day time.  Courtyard that might have been exploited for natural lighting has not been used for such purposed.  Ventilation is from small window, which are present on the outside walls. The north side windows are large and near the ceilings.

  17. 17. • OPEN SPACES  Courtyard is the only open space in the college which is well linked to the rest of the college. It is a grassy lawn, used by students to relax during their spare time. There is a large garden the south side of the college which is linked through entrance hall the
  18. 18. • INTERACTION  Closed nature of study spaces.  courtyard is only interaction space in the college. Interaction and exchange of is which forms a very important part of architectural education has been ignored by the architect.  The uneven spacing o faculty rooms create very awkward relationship between students & faculty.
  19. 19. • LIBRARY  Centrally air-conditioned library with approx. 15,000 titles in architecture and related fields.  Teaching aids like audio and videocassettes are also available.  Training reports of Seventh semester students are also availablehere for reference.

  21. 21. BOOK SECTION OF LIBRARY
  22. 22. • WORKSHOP  The college workshop caters to the need of ‘hands on’ experience in handling of building construction tools and model making.  It has facilities including machines and trained personnel in the fields of carpentry, metal work and model making.
  23. 23. • INTERIOR SPACES  The studios are quite spacious and they are separated by low height walls.  •The doubly loaded corridors are dull spaces. The studios and the workshop are intercepted columns in the middle.  Now days, further partitions have been put in studios to divide them into subspaces.  •The walls are whitewashed while the ceiling have left of bare concrete.  On the whole, there has been no attempt to create interesting spaces by the architect.
  24. 24. MATERIALS USED  BRICK HAS BEEN USED AS PRIMARY BUILDING MATERIAL FOR THE ENTIRE COMPLEX WALLS, COLUMNS.  BRICK ARCHES HAVE BEEN USED FOR WIDE SPANS.  USE OF CONCERETE HAS BEEN RESTRICTED TO FOUNDATIONS, FLOOR SLABS, AND TIES FOR ARCHED OPENINGS.
