Designers’ Forum is a dedicated group of designers in Udaipur who are looking towards contributing in making world a better place to live. It’s a platform for knowledge sharing of ins and outs of Architecture including interactive sessions with renowned architects, designers as well students.
With every event, forum introduces few knowledge partners. This time it was Decent Furnishings, KEI Wires and Lucky Timbers who displayed their potential products during the event.
Forumites, Architect Sunil S Ladha and Amit Gaurav started the workshop with Funtangle – an exercise that dared to be original with hands-on-art. As a result, participants were amazed to see their own level of creativity and took home a self-made piece of art.
Then came the main motive of the workshop i.e. IOTA (Internet of things in Architecture): In 1977 internet was born, but the power of internet has been felt in past decade. It revolutionised the whole concept of our world- got everything in this small gadget called mobile and practically we can do everything from this small additional artificial body part of ours and all because of internet in our hands and now it is approaching the untapped field of architecture and interiors.
Designers’ forum, Udaipur took this maiden step to redefine internet with respect to architecture and interiors. In the workshop, a brainstorming session was held to create guidelines for the future of design thereby guiding the product manufacturers and the likes.
This workshop was the original work of forumites and the only one of its kind in the world.
Forumites paid tribute to the Legendary Architect Charles Correa by introducing its first ever trophy on his name to celebrate mentorship of Ar. Upendra Tater. He is a trend setter in Architectural tips and these will soon be documented in a book.
Guidelines for IOTA- Outcome: 1) Design: Aiming Responsive Architecture in terms of End User’s Health, Safety, Sustainability, timeless and Nature Driven factors. It not only optimises but also contributes. Eg: Incorporating online sensors
2) Specs: Online Upgrade to latest in the making and hence achieving level next.
3) Execution: Virtual supervisor / representative at site Eg: Online marking and alignment at site, fault finding, reporting with rover/drone doing the job with laser technology.
4) Functionality: Assessing the user friendliness of the spaces and paraphernalia, thereby helping take necessary remedial actions to enhance the functionality.
5) Add-ons / value addition: Online tracking and display of consumption of services like water, electricity, air conditioning and the likes, thereby triggering the end user to think and act towards a greener tomorrow.
