Orientation for Thesis in Architecture
Architectural Thesis Project forms the pinnacle highlight of the Bachelor of Architecture course. Strategically positioned at the culmination stage of the professional course, the thesis project becomes a platform to demonstrate all the learning and skills acquired during the course and build a case of worthiness to be awarded the professional degree for further practice as an Architect.
It is also an important opportunity to pursue design directions in areas of one’s interest and raise responsible and relevant points through the course of one’s thesis. This would then evolve a thesis to be a document of value than just a mere requirement for the course completion. The importance associated with thesis makes the choice of topic and its roadmap to completion critical. It could weigh down on students leaving them confused and at times clueless too.
Decode Thesis workshop offers to bring in clarity about thesis at an overall level. The workshop breaks down the components of what makes up a thesis and how to do it well ! It explains how to choose and do a thesis project by giving insights into potential areas and methods for thesis, mapping self-assessment to probable topics, evaluation and finally identifying the thesis topic.
