In this talk, Sankalpa expounds pedagogical methods of revision and repetition of sameness. Sankalpa believes that the inhabited space in architecture is essentially established when its relationship to construction and structure becomes indistinguishable. Although disagreements may surface he argues - on space as an experiential entity - the logics of interaction between force and material remains indisputable. Riyaz then, is a discerning practice that identifies the underlying disposition between material, forces and space, while at play with them. The pedagogy of the everyday is to explore the diversity in approaches but attain mastery over one.


Sankalpa is a practicing architect and an academic. He has been teaching at the Faculty of Architecture CEPT University (Ahmedabad, India) since 2008. He currently holds the position of Program Chair for Master's in Architectural Tectonics (MAT) at the CEPT University. He is also a co-founder of 'thumbimpressions' - a collaborative practice involved in design, construction and detailing.
