  • 3. INTENTA final year architectural project is supposed to be the culmination of the learning process of an architectural student. For every student it is the final milestone for the academicjourney and the same holds true for me with a slight difference. Unfortunately it is the zenith of our architectural senses when our mind is at its creative and sensitive best aseverything that we learn during this phase of our life helps us gain a practical perspective to the so called ―wild imagination‖ of an aspiring architect. Things that we might feelwere unrealistic start seeming possible and real as we start looking at striking that balance required between creativity and possibility. In other words, we become responsible andstart thinking responsibly.The so called difference talked about earlier refers to the final milestone of the academic journey which from my point view is rather a starting point for the journey that the endingpoint. We could rather say that standing at this junction we could analyze and learn from the mistakes in the past and rectify them in order to start off the journey called life forwhich we have been preparing all these years.I too would like to take this opportunity to judge myself in comparison to the years that have gone by and implement the knowledge gained from the teachers, seniors and friends asthis knowledge would in turn help me in channelizing my career the way I would want it to be and see what would it be that could contribute to the practical world from whatever Ihave learnt.A final year architectural project is a step by step process and even a never ending one as no matter whatever we do one‘s own self would always feel that there would be scope foreven more and even better this even so because we are the ones who get to choose our own topic and hence there is a sense of attachment towards the project because of which wewish for it to be perfect. the extent of involvement in clearly reflected from the extent one goes in handling all the possible challenges one would meet during the actual executionof the project and thus it brings out flair as aspiring architects as we end up trying to strike a balance between the real and virtual world.I understand that the solution cannot be achieved in one go as with every stage. The work needs to be reviewed in order to check it for every possible discrepancies which needs tobe addressed then and there by surrounding it with appropriate details and solutions and frankly speaking all this just doesn‘t end here. It has a much stronger and deeper meaningas every individual is highly responsible for shaping his own future but we as architect influence life of others also to a certain extent.

VISION The Korean National University of Cultural Heritage promotes its student in the field of Archeology, art and craft traditionally, conservation science and traditional architecture to preserve the cultural heritage of nation and to extend it to the world by enriching and maintaining theINTRODUCTION style and method of preservation.

Given the size of the higher education in 2000 by the Cultural Heritageschool, despite the number of buildings and divers Administration. The University was conceived to nurture afunctions, five years is a relatively long period. This was workforce equipped with specialist skills, knowledge andto meet the requirements for a new university such as expertise that would contribute to the national effort to preservebuildings and external spaces that were needed in stages. and develop the rich, invaluable tradition and cultureThus, the difference between the first constructed bequeathed to Korea by its long history.buildings and finally completed buildings is around 4years. The campus had to cope with several difficulties. BUYEO CLIMATEIn case of the student union building, its purpose has to beconverted to accommodate minimum administrative anddining functions like a library and a cafeteria temporarilybut its function was recovered when all the constructionwork in the campus was done. The dormitory continued tobe added by a certain unit. The massive layer-shapedplaza was developing like a tree stem according to theaddition of buildings and finalized to be open at the end asif it implied the growth process.The development and transformation of each building wasunderway without a hitch under the prepared plan on thewhole and parts. During the lengthy constructionperiod, places and spaces that were not intended wereconstructed. Case in point: the route pattern. This was alsoa result of a change and addition to the initial program.Encountering this situation, I feel once again thatarchitecture is as organism. In this regard, the campus isstill under construction and such a growth and change willtake place forever.ARCHITECTURE COLLEGE CAMPUS, NUCH, Najeebullah Rasuli Architectural Thesis SCOA Buyeo, South Korea 14 KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

The objective of the design team should be to optimize the function of space, by clearly identifying all performance requirements and allowing for these needs in the design stage. Ancillary support spaces (i.e. lobbies, lecture halls) should be serviced by the primary telecommunication distribution system/infrastructure in the building. Lecture halls require the greatest design input and in which is usually found the greatest complement of audiovisual facilities. Lecture halls are generally single function spaces with fixed seating and writing furniture on a tiered or sloping floor surface. Each seat should have a clear unobstructed view to the lecturer and all boards and screens located on the presentation wall.
