First visit -Akshardham Delhi (PART -1)

This year has a great start.. Especially for me.It was the 2nd of january and I and my sisters went to delhi. We went to many places there . We had been there for some work. But as being and explorer and a student of architecture first.. We all visited. Akshardham Temple there.. Let’s uncover the scene. –

To me is was the first visit there. As been living in the eastern state of India and been a son of a father who owns a private clinic. Its quiet difficult for us to arrange a trip or to go outside along with the family members. But this trip was the beautiful. And historical too.. (for me)

Journey- We started from Lucknow( UttarPradesh) and used train as a medium. This is the time of pandemic.. Therefore many precautions were taken and we also have to be so much attentive to keep ourselves safe. Having the responsibility of one own self and the two sisters is also a job of proud and strictness. There we reach at 3 am in the morning. We had been there sitting in the station beds whole night. It was a bittering cold that day.. And we used to wear our bagpack along with the two kambals for the good.. The journey of train was also comfortable.. And we have a good sleep.. There.. In the night around 1’O clock I started sleeping… Whatever.. Keeping my new phone safe.. As I purchased it few days before from my savings. Well whatever. After the whole day has gone. We planned a lot. But because of the natures call.. The whole plan got in the bin.. And we were than also enjoying. The weather and journey..

The platform was 17th we were on the last track.. And than when the sun appears to come above the horizon we see the clouds roaring and the lightening striking just above our head. Well whatever the day it was but than also we enjoyed.. We were travelling towards the metro the distance is merely a few mtrs away but for us in the rain it appears like it’s more than the whole journey from Lucknow to Delhi.. In between the way our shoes were filled with water and they were making a bubbling sound. Now we entered the metro firstly we crossed the road than we came back the whole road filled with water and the water was of the manholes. Yukk . it was so bad at that time but memorable too. Finally we got the metro station.. There we entered.. And we were appearing to the people like the that we took a bath along with the clothes.. Hahaha we were just like comic creatures. There. The whole metro station of Delhi. OMG.Its a big network.. I think. 7 floors down and 10 floors above..

I was just pretending how people work there how the whole construction took place and how the staff or the workers manage the whole so complicated set of trains. The trains come and go.. Just like shoo.. Shoo… Well to me the people there are quiet selfish.. Matlabi log. Being a person from UP this is the main thing I found is that here people are so much respectful to others .. As an old saying. “Lucknow ki tehheeb.. ” But there people don’t care what you are and who you are. They never think of you.. Just my own personal opinion do that take it too seriously. As an incident took place with us.. When our whole legs and shoes are filled with water there was no one who can even give us two polyethenes . How hard there heart is.. But finally one man on the thela.(mobile van) Helped us.. But he took money for that too.. Whatever but he helped us.. We are thankful for that person..

After completing our official work. We just planned to go Akshardhaam here the journey begins.. Now I don’t remember the names of the stations but if you need to know search on the Delhi metro site. It will surely help.. As it helped me…. After reaching the final destination we finally came outside it.. Now the weather has also improved a little bit. But the excitement has overcome our cold and tiredness

Now coming to the architects view of the temple.. And how it over

keep connected for the second part

This is my personal experience .. second part would be published soon.. thankyou for wait.
From google..bird’s view of this master piece❤

NEARBY SITE VISIT-

Through being an architectural student I love exploring new places and trying to visit almost all the sites which influence me . It’s a process of learning new techniques and methods. It helps me to understand spaces more clearly and also makes us more clear about how the building takes place in this 3-D space. From foundation to the parapet it makes the process so tedious and quiet intresting . These are the some of the photos which I visited near my house.

*This is not my project…. This is a site which is near my home… Just exploring spaces*

An Architect and a Civil Engineer

“Civil engineers acts like Words but Architects play the role of the poets”

by -Utkarsh Mishra
so to have a beautiful poem ,words have to be arranged meaningfully and logically binded with the chain of creativity...

The most common problem people face nowadays is that they don’t understand who are Civil Engineers and who are Architects ..? May be the reason that they are less aware or our country is still lagging behind in the field of Architecture .Many people get confused between the two. Its like a curse for any person who belongs to a specific field and people call him or her by the other proffession ,its more like a heartbreak.

While on one hand Architecture is totally depend on feelings and philosophical concept, while The Civil Engineering is fully based on the structural and safety of human beings. Both are required and are equally important for the human beings. Because human beings need the both physical and emotional balance to live a live beautifully and meaningfully

As I’m an Architect ,therefore I will try to make your mind clear about what Civil Engineer’s don’t do. In this way you can easily understand the relationship and the wide difference between the two.

1-Architects are masters for making plans. They do the same thing for five years of their college life and the whole life.(plans means the architecture drawing floor plans and all.

2-We know about the physchology of human behavior and work in that way. We play with the spaces by adding the feelings. As JAHA HADID mam said that ‘the buildings rose our senses and they enhance our feelings’ .At some places we feel excited and enthusiastic but at some places we feel bored and sad. All is the play of the magic of Architecture and feelings.

3- An Architect guides all the functional aspects of abuilding and makes a person to move on a desired path.One of the major reasons why some malls and monuments attract the visitors again and again.It’s the magic of the Architecture.In this way the people got some time to live with themselves and they find peace from their busy lives.

4-‘An Architecture is a form of art and Not every body is an Artist’ .An Architect adds more value to our lives by adding the more and more meaning and a type of lifestyle. as it is said –

‘We shape buildings and than buildings shapes us’

5- Architecture is a very broad field and a lot of scope .But one must have that much of courage to withstand all the obstacles and live a very busy life. Many think that drawing the lines on a peice of paper is a very easy task. Yes it is but to give a meaningful drawings their is a lot of thaught process that undergoes .We have to do a lot of casestudies site visits and all the work .Its more like a proffession of a doctor.

I will say that -‘Doctors are the second face of God but an Architect enlightens us like God by the atmosphere.’

By -Utkarsh Mishra

6-” An art is an imagination and imagination has no limits so the Architecture” .But when it comes to the Civil Engineering there is a set of rules As Engineering is based on the concepts of Physics and there are the rules and laws which needs to be followed .

7-When seen on the wide scale its only because of the Architecture that our cultures and traditions are being preserved As I heard somewhere that “to destroy the culture of any country destroy all its Art and Architecture” .So now you can understand that how we are preserving our culture and also to make our new generation we conserve for future.Let me explain about this let me give you a example–>

As all the Muslims Go for Hajj to Madinah once in their lifetime and at a small scale they go to Masjids,Similarly All Hindu Go to the old Ghats and Temples . In future they would prefer to go to Ayodhya (Ram Janm Bhoomi where the RAM [Hindu God]Temple is now begin to construct under the Yogi's Raj) By the way- 'Bhagvaan ek roop anek'(God is one but the faces are different).But than also because of religious beliefs and culture Architecture preserves all. Our future generations will only see what we built today they will understand the meaning and their past only by these Architectural works.

Well that’s enough that now you are able to make a difference between the two, but lets give a focus on the Civil Engineers also they are masters in the structural framework and all about the safety of the persons living inside any structure .Both Architects and Civil Engineers are equally important for any good project .We both work silmultaneously on a projects and it requires a lot of team work and efforts to set a masterpeice for the future that is built in present .We are the two faces of a coin.

Failed ….Modern Architecture

MINIMALISM…LESS IS MORE…..FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION…..INNOVATIONS ……MODERN TECHNIQUES……..

If you are associated with architecture than you must be familier with these phrases sometimes or even more often.The whole World is now covered with the so called ‘modern architecture‘. The innovative techniques advancements are done on the daily basis in the field of architecture.

But according to me the true meaning of Architecture lies in the way how we follow our own cultures and traditions.It does not depend on what we perform but how we perform our daily activities. The way how one lives their life and performs their activities by keeping their values and traditions as a North Pole.

Modern Architecture fits in all aspect of a good and civilised society but it cuts the people from their roots.(roots here means of one’s own identity , their culture ,tradition and their link to ancesters)The architecture moulds the human being.They live according to the way their spaces are organised and planned which ultimately decides what they do and how they do…?

It destroyed the real identity of the region and scripted the life of people in the same format.This is boring and has negative impacts for the long term.As architecture is all about the life and its relation with the human being.How one celebrates the built form.?Its a whole journey which includes the study of history and the adaptations along with time to live a more easy and efficient lifestyle.But the –

traditions and culture should always be the guiding light for the Architects

all over the world.More we focus on our roots more we would be able to relate and connect to our ancestors.Also it would help us in getting the real meaning and purpose of life.

I’m not against the modern architecture besides I do like the principles and philosophy of it.But in the most important aspect like the preservation of identity it failed .This is the reason why we see the whole world is wearing the same mask of Glass, Steel and Concrete.We can’t relate any country by just seeing its building individually.

For example when we talk about the Greek and Roman than an image would flash in our minds of the orders of their columns like Doric ,Ionic and Corinthian. Similarly then we talk about any country the image got created in our minds.As a result of this the countries lost their uniqueness.

The Falling Water

By going through the one of the finest architect from the world and his master piece THE FALLING WATER( one of the heritage sites of the world being preserved since 1957) designed by Frank Lolyd Wright.The building opposes the modern architecture in the use of materials .This building is a retreat house itself .By the use of rocks and wood it opposes a modern architecture in a constructive way.

Now a days many architects lost their taste of using the natural materials or they don’t have developed it. The’ truth is that the great architects have made the best use of local materials and also they tried to find the best outfit for their projects ‘(means the materials for their projects).Which ultimately became their identity and their signature styles.

Thus there is a need to change the way we build. In order to preserve the identity and uniqueness of the people.If not taken care than the whole world will look similar.Their would be no distinction between the geographical areas on the basis of their traditions culture and values,which I personally think is important for the coming generations.
