- SHARVANI MJAIN GROWTH

Growth is a natural phenomenon and every living being wants to grow.

When I was a kid, we were given an assignment to grow a plant in a small pot. I loved this process of germinating the seed and planting it. Every morning it was exciting to see the sprouting, and the gradual growth of the plant. But the irony ofhumans is that when we are small we want to be grown-ups and when we become old we want to be young again. There is a child in each of us which does not want to grow.

Growth is personal, as well as external, such as, in an organization, growth of a village, town or city, a nation and all these are interlinked. Growth in a person happens when one starts learning and learning is eternal. When one stops learning, one stops growing. Challenges in life make you learn new things and allow you to grow, especially when you take the road less travelled.

Growth always does not mean climbing the ladder to the top. You need to enjoy the climb and not always focus on reaching the top. You would not experience anything at all if you are only focused on reaching the top. While trekking in the mountains, our focus would be so much to reach the top of the mountain that we forget to experience the climb, look at nature around, stop to smell the roses, as they say. In life too we do the same. In our pursuit of achievement, we tend to rush through everything and not truly experience life's moments at all.

We live in fast changing times. The way we work and what is required of us is evolving constantly. We have to be willing to embrace the change in order to grow. The architectural profession throws a lot of challenges at you and when you confront these challenges, learning and growth happens naturally. In Architecture the structures and the environment we want to create should have the provision to absorb the growth. One of the good examples of allowing this to happen is Aranya Housing project by Ar.B.VDoshi. To provide the basic amenities and allowing the residents to build according to their convenience and aspiration was a project that allowed the growth to happen in an organic manner. Built environment is like a living being which will have to keep evolving and have provision for changes to happen over the period of its life. How do we plan for these provisions in the face of ever changing technology? Can we design buildings that would last forever? Can we design timeless buildings?

At the urban development level, growth could be looked at as a negative aspect. Bangalore city has grown uncontrollably. Though the technology industry has given employment to vast numbers of people, it has attracted a huge population from all over the country. The city is not able to accommodate the inflow and growth is looked at as a burden to the city. How do we resolve this conflict of creating employment and providing for the infrastructure?

For the living environment to be alive, supportive and sustainable, the quality of the process of its creation is crucial. In nature there is always space for everyone to grow. Can we be like the seed that would grow to be the tree contributing back to nature and allowing everyone else to grow along?

Growth is a natural process. It is essential in helping us mould ourselves into better human beings. Taking the idea of transition from the previous month's issue to the next step, we arrived at the theme of growth. This could be so personal or subjective to each one of us and the journeys we have all been

through could vary on many levels. Right from the conception ofWCFA to what it is now, the college as a whole has grown immensely. The process of growth the college has undergone from being a campus with 3 small old buildings scattered across a large field to growing into a successful college with beautiful infrastructure helping the students learn and yield better creative ideas by studying the surrounding built environment is massive. This issue hence serves as a platform for all those architects, students, teachers and everybody else to freely express their thoughts and share their individual journeys on growth. How have you grown as an individual since the conception of WCFA? Thoughts similar to these have been expressed through poems,

articles, sketches and comics.

In hope that this issue will help all of us understand how we as individuals experience growth at WCFA and learn from

one another's journeys.

Spring started, she threw seeds on the ground, from the ground where a seed has dropped Rises a vertical blade.

The sun starts to shine and green shoots grow

It will become a huge tree,

But now, so small to recognise it yet, Little by little it grows

Begins to branch

Buds germinate on its branches, Other branches spring from the buds, Other leaves from the branches and so on .. A few years later,

That green blade has become wide branches Which produce leaves , blossoms and fruits. In autumn, it will spread its seeds around some fall beneath it

while others will be carried far away by the wind ..

Almost everywhere a seed falls, A new tree will GROW

LESS IS MORE The seed of thought, Begins so small,

A scratch, or scribble on the paper You know it all!

The seed grows bigger, Pushing the thoughts afar, I dream and dream, Wishing upon a star. The seed is now a tree, Grown to its fullest' Bright and green.

Yet how we only cherish, The fruit is my thought, Cause it was the seed That made me think a lot.

PATTERNS OF GROWTH Developing from tiny eggs

Feasting and walking on the host with thousand legs Melting down in the pupa before evolving

Spurts out the butterfly with a pair of wings Secreting the nacre within the shell

Oysters seize the foreigners by this defense bell Treating and coating them with utmost care Pearls are formed to be shiny and rare Trees grow towards the sky

Keeping its head high And deep into the ground Without thinking of any bound May it be rise or fall

The growth rings show it all

All the time when earth was under strains

Emerged from beneath the humungous mountains Standing strong from very beginning

Even when the tectonic plates kept pushing, splitting and shifting

Pushed out of the womb Till the date on the tomb Former taking care of the latter

Making sure everything is on the platter Physically growing along with intelligence Humans had their own charm and elegance Walking clueless but with a bigger vision Towards earth they had attitude of submission Time went by they evolved hand in hand Allowing the humans to claim the land Evolving from them the selfish beasts Concerned about the earth to the very least Exploiting the resources to an extreme

Only if they could hear the screams _ ATHIQ UR RAHMAN

GROW AS THE NATURE GROWS Nature is so vibrant and silent, nobody here is angry and violent nature's beauty is so cool,

you can find it everywhere, at home and school. Nature has everything,

in case there is something missing, nature arranges for it soon.

To save our nature from troubles, the well-wishers are born as creatures. Nature is also home to birds and trees, and that's why we can

get any amount of oxygen for free.

- V G KARTHIK

As the nature grows slowly and steadily, man has to also acquire eventually. Nature gives everything we need, which satisfies all our deeds. So, now we know the

importance of nature,

let's try and save nature to return the favour.

THE MASTER OF PROCASTINATION

At the time of this article being conceived, I'm sitting in a car in Mangalore on my way to buy millboard for a project I was supposed to present today. I'm behind on what seems to be a gazillion assignments. In terms of understanding and learning, I've probably kept up really well but in terms of marks itself I wouldn't be surprised to see myself at the bottom of the list. Why? I mean if I understand what I have to do, it should be simple right? Work ethic, something I've avoided my entire life and the funny thing is, it worked. I always managed to sneak my way out of slippery situations. But the day I joined WCFA, was the day this notion of doing everything in the nick of time flung out. Not instantly of course, I wish it was instant but no, it's going to take a long time before a master procrastinator like me could even hope to manage time efficiently the way the great architects of our age do.

It is funny, you look at an architect and you would never ever think of them as organized in any way. Messy notes, randomly placed sketches here and there, always taking pride in having no sleep but the truth is, or at least I seem to be coming to this understanding that architects are just as disciplined as the men and women who serve our country, in a very different way however. There aren't "eureka's at 2 am in the morning, these people are professionals who have clients to satisfy and buildings to design. I always expected the amount of work that's being given right now, but surprisingly or maybe unsurprisingly here I am, procrastinating by writing this article .

Day by day, bit by bit, I seem to be adapting to this twenty-four hour work culture that seems to plague architecture students. I'm far away from being a week ahead of submission but I'm getting there with no idea if I'll actually pass my first semester the way it's going but I can always try, right? From models to papers, to book club meetings I really want to attend but never seem to have the time to.

All those years of mum nagging me about time management, cutting out articles for me to read and ironically enough, constantly threatening me with military school, aha I can't ever show her this otherwise I'll never hear the end of it. It is fair to say I haven't grown yet, not in this aspect of my life but getting me to finally admit defeat is an achievement in itself. You see, becoming an architect, it is of extreme importance to me and not achieving this goal is not an option. So it is do or die, work or become a worker. Something to change within to change the world. To me, this may be hardest obstacle I have had to overcome yet, something which I have to scale to grow, as a person and to achieve as an architect. Whoops, I guess this calls for a five-minute break which I know will turn into an hour.

DARWINISM - SAHANAS - SUPREETHS BREAKAWAY

Every time I heard the doorknob turn, my heart pace quickened

I knew what was coming my way

After hours, I would be left bloody and wounded Not able to move or even groan

The patriarchal shackles weighing me down ... Then one day, I felt a growth inside me

A feeling rooted deep within

It made me strong and powerful

The spirit inside me started flying high and away Breaking the chains, I bolted

Never did I look back, or mend the breaking bones And I stopped only when I knew I'm free

GROWTH

When we talk of "growth': it generally implies we are referring to a living organism, or at the very least a dynamic being. Hence, we refer to the growth of institutions or organisations, growth of the economy and also the growth of natures.

For the purpose of this article, I would like to categorise growth into two types, linear and lateral or rather layered. Linear growth happens when an individual's age increases from 10 years to 15, or when a tree grows from a height of2 metres to a height of over 15 metres or a company that increases in terms revenue or profit by a certain percentage every year. Layered growth in contrast is less obvious. It would imply ability of a certain kind. One could type 400 words in about ten minutes, but would that alone make him or her, a Hemingway, or closer to home "a Kuvempu" with the ability to write classics?

A great chef is not necessarily the one who is able to prepare the most number of dishes. Rather, it is the one who is able to understand the essence of a dish, and prepare it in the way it is meant to be cooked, and this holds true for all art forms as well.

When we look at institutions of learning, we see many of them which churn out huge numbers of successful students. Successful, in terms of the grades they score only. Amongst engineering colleges, the number of placements is treated as another indicator of success. All this would fall under "linear growth'~ But what would cause an institute of learning to fall under the category of "lateral" or "linear" growth? To answer this, we could look at the below mentioned points: 1) When an institution makes a meaningful contribution towards the discipline it is imparting education in.

2) The students on graduating are able to later influence the directions of that particular discipline

3) The students on moving out of the institution are able to assume leadership roles in the society

A few institutions came to mind, like the Stanford university and MIT in engineering, AA London and CEPT in architecture, and campuses like INSEAD for business studies. None of these were built overnight. Building an institution is a strenuous task but with the right people, it can be an easy journey.

LET ITGO LET IT LEAVE LET IT HAPPEN NOTHING IN THIS WORLD WAS PROMISED OR BELONGED TO YOU ANYWAY RUPI KAUR

Don't let something stop you from taking the next step forward. If you let go, you grow as a person and carry an extra value with yourself.( everything happens for a reason).

-M.L.SHETTY

When I think of this term 'growth ' , i picture an act of 'all the world's a stage' of an infant in a cradle to a senile old man on his desk his deathbed.

Even though the first thought is just as very physical or rather visual one, i also believe growth means a lot more than just age. It's so important to grow ass a person. To grow your intellect, understanding of things, empathy so on and further. Its also so

significant to ensure other people's growth. My mom always says that in a healthy relationship, balanced growth is a must . I couldn't agree any more.

When a child learns to eat a mother learns to teach 'how to eat: she learns patience. Similarly when a student learns a formula the teacher learns a way to explain it.

Such a balance is necessary. And in certain relationships it has to be worked on to maintain. Because ensuring it in our tiny personal circles will result in our own growth as well.

In conclusion, lets grow beyond just years. -SAYEMA SYED

.&I<E"TCHE5

IN TIME, WE GREW Time runs past us everyday, We look towards the present With an eye on yesterday. We wish for a cheery future

While barely focusing on hazy today. When seconds become years

We may like what we once feared, Or love what we once hated.

We grow out of yesterdays and todays, Out of fads of now and fads of then, Out of habits, lifestyles and the current, All this, while time runs with us everyday. People play their part in life each day, Be it as a parent and child,

A student and teacher, An employer and employee, A master and apprentice, Or even lovers and friends, We share, we learn, we grow. Together, we bond and stay,

All this, while time runs ahead, everyday. -MADHAVI SNAIR ~;;Jt.Jd ~c:1-.Jr-;:;c-lZ'd.,r-;:;~) Q ~o~3.,r-;:;od) t:J~&cd

IN BETWEEN SPACES

1 - Transition - Historically forms of transition have conveyed a great deal of meaning and particular set of values. They guide Human activities and movement and shape relationship between spaces and those who inhabit them when they lead from an enclosed interior to a more

public exterior space. Their architecture is particularly

rich in association and, further overlaid with signs that indicate a territorial control. They shape the experience of all who arrive or depart.

2 - Threshold - from the beginning this element has multiple function; a threshold for passing through and shutting out.

Threshold space often appears as a gesture of arrival in other words creates a sense of entry.

Arrival is generally associated with deceleration. You are slowed down because you ascend steps or ramps or

notice a change in materiality. As you move slowly your

sensory organs can comprehend the spatial the spatial aspects better (materiality).

3 - Territory

Space under control is territorial, and distinguishing

such territory is fundamental to inhabiting the earth. It

is claimed by continuous act of physical inhabitation and

enforced by territorial control. What does it mean to control space? Space that a visitor cannot enter is private

a - Marking and interpreting territory - sometimes extends the zone of transition to highlight the experience of transition.

Public /private boundaries and transition are otherwise marked by durable stone , metal or wooden posts , walls , gates or doors. Territorial claims may otherwise be softer or less permanent.

b - Claiming territory at the fa<;:ade plane

Territorial zones claim exterior space with series of layers overhangs, steps and paving surfaces.

When several of these cubes come together, they create a complex pattern; since the movement can happen along all the faces of the cube, the number of patterns it can create are innumerable and the pattern of growth is almost unpredictable.

students have.
