The main challenge of design was a Site, which is having area of 92268sq.m. and facing NORTH To EAST direction also having contour difference of 40 meter. Main approach is to analyse with the existing contour and play with the levels. The existing site having contour along the river stream and the bridge is the only approach to the site.

Considering all the challenges, the design was to make ‘imperfect’ spaces with organic dynamism like villages.

With the start of the design development every space and area of the site were divided from part to whole. where every part of the space were defined according the use of the function like the open weekly market ,food stall ,craft shop ,museum ,library, OAT, Workshop area and the Accommodation unit which were segregated from each other but it was connected according to the function and use of the space.

Every function of the spaces were connected as per the user’s inferences. The general restaurant was at the core of the main area, the open market area was segregated totally from those main activities like the library, museum, workshop area, OAT and the Museum.

Although they are two different things we sense their interrelationship and emotional bond. Something very organic yet dynamic to be expressed by the site. The environment to be very vernacular with use of the roof of MORUNG style keeping alive the essence of the Region.

The Morung (or the traditional community house) at Khonoma Village. Acting as an educational institution, A Morung is where youngsters would gain their first few lessons of cultural & traditional knowledge through folk music, dance, folk tales and oral traditions. During the time of war, they were also used as used as a guard-house.

Design used the symbolism of that area through Morung.


1.Use of the materials 2.local Materials, local skills, local technique 3.Keeping alive the essence of the village. 4. Implementing new technique design in terms of architectural thoughts, spaces, functions and purpose of the area. 5. New modern technologies design without losing the essence of the region

Inherited from past generations, cultural heritage, the legacy of physical objects and intangible qualities of culture, comprises a range of terms, such as architectural heritage, archaeological sites and cultural landscapes, providing opportunities for leisure and tourism, when properly maintained and wisely handled. On the urban level, the dynamic relationship between cultural heritage and tourism is even more apparent. Urban cultural tourism, which also focuses on traditional communities, is a growing trend worldwide, attracting attention from different fields such as tourism management, architecture, urban planning and environmental sciences. This chapter focuses on the subject of traditional urban communities’ architectural heritage and tourism growth based on a holistic and integrated understanding of the dimensions embedded in urban heritage ensembles, e.g., historical, spatial economic and social. The case study makes reference to the Upper City (Ano Poli) of Thessaloniki, a historic neighborhood in one of Greece’s most popular cities for cultural tourism, due to its continuous urban presence for more than twenty-three centuries and its multicultural history. Ano Poli is among the areas of Thessaloniki's urban fabric endowed with historic architectural and spatial planning elements, attracting many visitors. The chapter investigates the perceptions of Erasmus students–tourists toward architectural heritage tourism in general and specifically for the Upper City and the city of Thessaloniki, so as to explore a most promising segment of the rising cultural tourism market. The study analysis and research results lead to a better understanding of the significance of architectural heritage in urban tourism.

Winery & Tourism Hub: A relation with nature, connection, craft and enjoyment

Page 1





 Winery design contains more of semi open spaces than enclosed. Entire process is to disconnect user from all congested and chaotic city life to feel in between more of green then gray.  Nashik as surrounded by hills makes entire year a perfect climate for evening dinner and outdoor events, the only place in golden triangle ( Mumbai - Nashik - Pune ) with slightly lower temperature of dropping even to 1.6 degree in December and max of 37-41 degree during Summers. Tourism has increased by 45% in last 6 years. Also being the starting point of Godavari river , Nashik is a known pilgrimage and a huge hector of land is used for grape cultivation of varieties like ( Flame , Pinot noir, Carbanet shiraz , Riesling).  Wine is more than just a beverage, it's an experience, which is why many wineries are now open to the public for tours and tastings.

Keeping that in mind, what needs to be addressed when designing a contemporary winery? Showcasing: Wineries are usually placed in the middle or next to the vineyards where their grapes come from, which gives a design advantage when it comes to showcasing it to the public. Strategically placed windows and views in tasting rooms and foyers, for example, can help create the illusion of being immersed where it all happens, in the middle of the vineyard, cancelling surrounding visual noises; the visitor doesn't need to see the rough part of wine making, such as loading and unloading of pallets. The concept of "from the field to the table" takes a whole new meaning in a tasting pavilion with the perfect view of vineyards. These are the activities which are proposed on Winery and Production hub site, it includes Indoor, outdoor, Public, Private, Industrial, semi open, all of these activities are managed through a single broad pathways running through and between the structures. Most of the spaces have vineyard view which is key element in every winery design also all the vineyards are public accessible.

Case study 1 Sula Vineyard, Nashik Architect: Ar. Sanjay Patil Client: Rajeev Samant (CEO & Founder) Year of Construction: 1988 Address/Location: Gut No.36/2, Govardhan Village, off Gangapur-Savargaon Road, Nashik, MH, India. Location: Nashik is 180 km from Mumbai, reachable by car, bus or train and 210 km from Pune, reachable by car or by bus. SULA Vineyard is located 21km from the main entry of the Nashik, accessed by self-owned vehicle.

As part of their wine tourism venture, Sula operates, A tank room, Barrel room, A tasting room, 2 restaurants: 'Little Italy' & 'Soma', 35-room resort: ‘Source by Sula,’ Gym, Swimming pool and indoor tennis room An open Amphitheatre at their estate. [Note: For further detail information refer TRUPTIB_DD1_2019_20.]

Conclusion: As the Indian tourist graduates to 'themed tourism', the wine tourism is likely to grow quicker. When passed onto tour operators, it can reduce the gap between the vineyards and wine lovers and benefit the grape cultivators with remunerative prices from the wineries. Though the concept of wine tourism is relatively new in India, but it has bright future ahead if the efforts from the tourism perspectives being initiated. Nashik or India’s 'Napa Valley' is the principal hub with the maximum wineries and most popular vineyards. This place has the best potential to explore the activity and to promote it globally.




The design proposal converts an unappealing industrial facility to an attractive spot. The various situations one can experience during a stay in the winery should be well designed, comfortable and holistic. The functions should include services for tourists (such as accommodation and visitors center) as well as functions for local society (Social hub, restaurant, banquet hall and shop) The designed spaces should be flexible to accommodate various events, especially in the part of the production which is use for 3 months per year and in the rest of the time is empty.

The pursuit of biomaterials and biomimicry, a focus on sustainable design , and the use of AI in architecture will all have a significant impact on the future of architecture in 2023.

We propose 10 interesting architecture thesis topics and projects in this post that embrace these trends while embracing technology, experimentation, and significant architectural examples.

Architecture thesis topics

Architecture Thesis Topic #1 – Sustainable Affordable Housing

Project example: Urban Village Project is a new visionary model for developing affordable and livable homes for the many people living in cities around the world. The concept stems from a collaboration with SPACE10 on how to design, build and share our future homes, neighbourhoods and cities.

“Sustainable affordable housing combines social responsibility with innovative design strategies, ensuring that everyone has access to safe and environmentally conscious living spaces.” – John Doe, Sustainable Design Architect.

Architecture Thesis Topic #4 – Adaptive Reuse of Industrial Heritage

From 1866 to 1878, Oxford Street’s Paddington Reservoir was built. From the 1930′s, it was covered by a raised grassed park which was hidden from view and little used by the surrounding community.

Over the past two years, the City of Sydney and its collaborative design team of architects, landscape architects, engineers, planners, and access consultants have created a unique, surprising, functional, and completely engaging public park that has captivated all who pass or live nearby.

Instead of capping the site and building a new park above, the design team incorporated many of the reinforced ruins of the heritage-listed structure and created sunken and elevated gardens using carefully selected and limited contemporary materials with exceptional detailing.

Architecture Thesis Topic #7 – Urban Landscapes with Biophilic Design

Project example: The High Line is an elevated linear park in New York City that stretches over 2.33 km and was developed on an elevated part of a defunct New York Central Railroad branch that is known as the West Side Line. The successful reimagining of the infrastructure as public space is the key to its accomplishments. The 4.8 km Promenade Plantee, a tree-lined promenade project in Paris that was finished in 1993, served as an inspiration for the creation of the High Line.

“Biophilic design fosters human well-being by creating environments that reconnect people with nature, promoting relaxation, productivity, and overall happiness.” – Sarah Johnson, Biophilic Design Consultant.


Architecture Thesis Topic #8 – Augmented and Virtual Reality in Architectural Visualization

An interactive experience that augments and superimposes a user’s real-world surroundings with computer-generated data. In the field of architecture, augmented reality (AR) refers to the process of superimposing 3D digital building or building component models that are encoded with data onto real-world locations.

What is an Architecture Dissertation?

An architecture dissertation is a research paper that explores a specific topic in the architecture field. It is written by students pursuing an architecture degree and is a graduation requirement. It allows students to demonstrate their knowledge of the subject matter and their ability to conduct independent research. The topics for architecture dissertations vary widely, but they generally focus on a particular architectural aspect, such as design, history, theory, or technology.

If you're seeking inspiration for your architecture dissertation, we’re there to help you. In this blog, we have curated a list of 15 interesting dissertation topics spanning urban architecture, public spaces, hospitality structures, religious edifices, and more.

How to Choose a Dissertation Topic for Architecture?

Before going to the list of dissertation topics, let us first discuss how you can choose a dissertation topic for architecture:

1. Identify your Interests

Choose a topic that interests you the most. This will help you stay motivated throughout the research process.

2. Explore Current Trends

Look for the latest trends and developments in the architecture field. This can help you identify gaps in the industry and come up with a unique topic.

3. Consult with Your Advisor

Your advisor can provide valuable guidance and help you narrow down your topic. They can also suggest relevant literature and research methods.

4. Consider Your Resources

Ensure you have access to the necessary resources to conduct your research. This includes access to libraries, archives, and other sources of information.

5. Brainstorm Ideas (H3)

Once you have identified your interests and explored current trends, brainstorm a list of potential topics. This can help you identify the most promising ideas and narrow down your focus.

Most Intriguing Architecture Dissertation Topics

We have compiled a list of 15 dissertation topics that are intriguing and relevant to the architecture field. These topics cover various categories, from public to religious architecture and more. Take a look below:

1. Temple Complex of the Future (Religious Architecture)

Temples have always held central importance around the world and can be active sites of cultural confluence. Possible areas to explore in your architecture dissertation for this topic are the uses of sustainability in creating religious structures, materials used, analysing the cultural significance of the architectural elements in structures, and classifying their types and historical context.

Inter-faith traditions are spreading across the world, and this can and has given rise to new ideas. The Lotus Temple in Delhi is an excellent case study on the same - with a marvellous, nine-sided circular shape that embodies the central tenets of the Baha’i’ faith. It receives 20 percent of its electricity from solar panels. While the structure may look delicate, it can withstand an earthquake of up to 8 on the Richter scale. This is because each of its nine petals has been individually constructed and fortified. It is also one of the foremost examples of biomimetic architecture in the modern world.

An architecture dissertation is only one part of the larger process of building a portfolio! Usually, students are required to submit a thesis in addition to their architecture dissertation, to demonstrate practical skills. You can also call it a rite of passage! We’ve created the ultimate guide to nailing your architecture thesis , and we highly recommend checking it out if you’re struggling with the process of a thesis.

2. Community Centre (Public Architecture)

Architecture dissertations on community centres are a wonderful way to learn about urban development and planning. Exploring a community centre as your architecture dissertation topic would mean taking into consideration issues such as demographic analysis, community development (educational and skill-oriented), multifunctional spaces, ease of access, recreational facilities, and eco-friendly, sustainable building solutions. You can also look to design spaces that foster social relations and harmony within a local community while incorporating their culture and preferences, and perform case studies on the same.

An excellent example of an innovative community centre is the Largo Community Centre in Florida. The park focuses on creating, in effect, an indoor park with meeting spaces for community members and recreational facilities by using sustainable materials.

A community centre is also an excellent project to showcase in your architecture portfolio , which is essential to developing your skills and practical knowledge. Read more tips to create an incredible architecture portfolio.

3. Animal Shelters and Veterinary Care Centres (Healthcare Architecture)

It is no secret that planning and designing spaces for animals are very different from designing spaces for human beings. One needs to take into account the creation of surgery and operation theatres, hospital spaces for sick animals, residential areas for staff, playing pens, grazing grounds, access to medicinal supplies , and so on. Meanwhile, also ensure that the structure is easy to clean and has enough natural light and ventilation to comfort distressed animals. Certainly a competitive analysis for your architecture dissertation!

The Veterinary Clinic Masan in Chur, Switzerland is an excellent case study for this. Designed to house 17 members of staff, along with garden spaces, surgery rooms, and laboratories, the clinic is a unique testament to the fact that spaces for animals provide tremendous design and research scope.

4. Mass Rapid Transit Systems Design (Transportation Architecture)

MRTS includes the design structure of trams, buses, metros, monorails, and commuter rails. The challenges in this unique field include mapping strategic routes, conducting population demand and density analysis, interchange zones, and so on. All the while, ensuring that the MRTS design is in line with civic and environmental goals, goals, property development, population growth, and appropriate land use. This makes it a very stimulating architecture dissertation topic.

A fabulous example is the Shinkansen (tr. in Japanese: ‘new railway line’) in Japan , or the bullet train system. It connects major Japanese cities, and in the 50+ years of its operation, there has not been a single fatality, collision, or derailment. Now, that’s something!

5. Multi-Functional Urban Spaces (Urban Architecture)

It is estimated that by 2030, the world’s population will stand at a staggering 8.6 billion, with the 10 most populated cities seeing over 400 urban million dwellers . This makes multifunctional spaces in urban cities an increasingly important concern for developing countries. Some factors that are taken into account while planning multifunctional cities are preventing urban sprawls and overcrowding, taking care of waste management, and finding more sustainable ways to build structures. This must be done without affecting a decline in the city’s living standards, and with attention to issues such as mobility and equity . It is an exciting and highly futuristic for your architecture dissertation topic.

An interesting example of this is the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, which turned from one of the foremost cultural and economic hubs of the city to a barren land between East and West Berlin during the Cold War. Its revival after the fall of the Berlin Wall occurred when the government announced a design competition for the plaza, which turned it into one of the largest building sites in Europe, with clearly demarcated territories of commercial centres, cultural centres, and leisure zones.


Increasingly, urban designers and architects have realised that to construct the most efficient structures for urban living, they need to use technologies such as BIM. BIM helps all stakeholders in a project stay up to date with the latest developments and collaborate effectively. You can read more about the best architecture firms in India that have capitalised on BIM here.

6. Co-Living Housing (Residential Architecture)

Urban migration for work is an extremely common phenomenon in the current day and age. Co-living housing, statistically, is popular among young professionals who want to save funds and not take up the hassle of hunting for houses, flatmates, and furniture. A co-living unit usually comes pre-furnished and costs less than an apartment. An architecture dissertation that focuses on co-living spaces would need to take into account successful case studies, shared spaces between residents, affordability and energy efficiency, suitable privacy, and the changing trends within co-living structures.

An excellent case study on this topic is Roam Co-Living in Bali, which comes fully equipped with the modern amenities a young professional would need, while still offering enough privacy. This unique centre has often been described as “a model of a micro-society”.


7. Sustainable Architecture

 A view of Kohinoor Hospital, Mumbai

Sustainable architecture is an increasing zone of concern all over the world for acquiring long-term environmental, economic, and social viability. An architecture thesis that focuses on sustainability would need to include research on the various kinds of sustainable practices and their materials. For instance, solar power, wind power, biomass, materials such as bamboo, recycled plastic, among others. Sustainable architecture is a large field and, therefore, requires a narrowed-down focus on the kind of structure you are analysing, be it a hospital, a factory, or a school. It would also need to be lined up with case studies on local environmental factors and population analysis.

An excellent example of the same is Kohinoor Hospital in Mumbai. More than 40% of the resources used to construct this hospital are made of recyclable materials. In addition, the hospital places emphasis on water conservation. This is just one example. The number of structures one can explore for architecture dissertation topics on sustainability are endless. Kohinoor Hospital, too, is one of many amazing sustainable buildings.

8. Urban Campus (Educational Architecture)

Designing and researching a university campus is similar to building a small town. It needs to accommodate student housing, dining halls, libraries, classrooms, laboratories, recreational facilities, university administration offices , and several other concerns. In addition, it also needs to be representative of the university’s ethos and cultural identity. For students, it needs to promote a sense of well-being. Energy efficiency and pedestrian safety are also essential considerations, making it a very stimulating architecture dissertation topic.

Case studies on this topic need to be extensively researched and curated. An excellent case study example is the University of Washington’s campus , with its clear demarcations, easy-to-navigate routes, libraries, and recreational facilities.


9. Reinventing Villages (Residential Architecture)

Reviving villages often means rebuilding lost traditions and folklore that have been displaced or disappeared. This may occur due to changes in the economy, migration patterns, technological changes, and environmental degradation. Factors that need to be accounted for in an architecture dissertation on this topic are a regional historical analysis of the mentioned factors, in addition to demographic analysis for your case studies. Analysing building structures for technological progress, education, and employment generation, studying the architecture of existing structures, and focusing on the preservation of local historical monuments are some ways you can approach this topic for your architecture dissertation.

An excellent case study for the improvement of village structures is the revival of Kumbalangi fishing village by the government of Kerala . Focusing on eco-tourism, developing transportation routes, and improving the building structure for water access were some ways in which the government aided the Kumbalangi Integrated Tourism Village project.


10. Redefining Hotels and Resorts (Hospitality Architecture)

An architecture dissertation on hotels and resorts has several interesting offshoots to explore. Hotels and resorts, apart from being hubs for tourists and vacation venues, can also provide historical relevance and embody local traditions. An architecture dissertation on this topic can focus on the adaptive reuse of buildings, technical and cultural redevelopment, the relationship between the psychology of space and hospitality, eco-tourism, and sustainable development of hotels.

An incredible example of a re-conceptualized hotel is the Harding Boutique Hotel , designed by the firm Anarchitect. It combines the modernist style of acclaimed architect Geoffrey Bawa with traditional Sri Lankan architectural elements. It is located 30 minutes from the UNESCO heritage site Galle Fort , which makes it part of Sri Lanka’s prime cultural avenue.

11. Waste Management Centre (Industrial Architecture)

Waste management is an urgent concern in the modern world. An architecture dissertation topic of this nature would need to explore aspects such as recycling waste as construction material. Within this, it would involve analysing different kinds of waste (such as electronic waste, industrial waste, sludge waste, and organic waste) and how they can be repurposed. It would also include studying public policy and by-laws for waste management , among other factors.

A great case study on waste management is the Holmene islets of Copenhagen . These are nine man-made islets, and their unique design combines fossil-free energy production. Biowaste and waste water from Copenhagen’s 1.5 million residents are turned into clean water and biogas.

12. Eco Museum (Cultural Architecture)

An eco museum is a structure that uses a location's historical and cultural identity for tourism and heritage appreciation. Eco museums are usually run by local communities and are a way for them to participate in and preserve their heritage. Sustainable development is a major factor in eco museum construction and development. A architecture dissertation on the same would have to delve into the concept of heritage, restoring old buildings and sites, and ideating eco-friendly methods for conservation and future preservation.

A case study of a successful eco museum is the Flodden 1513 Eco Museum , which is situated on the northeastern border between Scotland and England. It was the site of a battle between English and Scottish forces in 1513 and caused the death of many noblemen and King James IV.

13. Disaster Relief Housing (Residential Architecture)

Asia and the Pacific islands are the most disaster-prone areas in the world. Over 45% of natural disasters occur in this region. This makes disaster relief architecture a very urgent concern in the area. An architecture dissertation on disaster relief housing would need to consider aspects such as the design of emergency shelter centres, sanitation access, and indexes of low-cost, weather resistant, and easily recycled materials that ca n survive diffic ult circumstances.

An excellent case study on disaster relief housing is architecture firm Designnobis’s all-inclusive emergency shelter, Tentative. It is a disaster response tent that can adapt to almost any climate.

“Tentative”, a disaster relief innovation by Designnobis.

14. Retracing the Identity of a Crematorium (Public Architecture)

Understanding funerary architecture is a unique topic for an architecture dissertation. One must understand the spatial needs of a funeral with respect to the culture and religion of the deceased person. There are many kinds of spaces to consider - cemeteries, crematoriums, tombs, towers of silence, and so on. The significance of the materials used with respect to their cultural symbolism and functional qualities is also important. Another interesting factor to explore is the environmental consequences of funerals.

An interesting case study of funerary architecture is the Parsi Tower of Silence. It is a circular, raised structure made of three concentric circles with an almost flat top. According to Zoarastrian rituals, bodies of men are left in the outermost circle, those of women in the middle circle, and those of children in the innermost circle for scavenger birds as an act of charity to nature.

15. Revitalising Local Markets (Commercial Architecture)

Markets have historically been a central location for shopping, trading, social gatherings, and more. In addition, they also often contain locally significant structures such as mosques and temples. When you consider revitalising local markets as part of your architecture dissertation, you have to take into account factors such as the different kinds of markets (street, enclosed, open) , their layout , spatial features , and whether they are permanent, or weekly. In addition, you must think about their function, history, local demographic and future possibilities to understand the context of revitalization in order to have a fruitful architecture dissertation on this topic.

An interesting example of a revitalised market is the Denpasar City traditional markets , where problems such as neglect in spatial planning and an increasing number of traders caused a decline in the market’s trade.

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture

architecture thesis topics related to tourism

Academic research is a wonderful opportunity that allows students to expand their creativity in resolving grounded practical issues faced by the industry. The architectural thesis produced by students in their final year is a thrilling journey of an explorer seeking solutions into the vast expanse of case studies , reviews, journals and documentations. While the thesis marks the joy of having the finish line in view, choosing a topic can be a confusing and harrowing phase. This article can be a step up for those who have an eye on public architecture and community designing. It is true that the subject must be highly individual and something you are passionate about, but here are 20 topics related to community architecture to spur your brain to creative action!

1. Community recuperation in the face of a global pandemic | Community Architecture

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet2

While the COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed a plethora of life changes, the use of public spaces and communal areas are the hot topics of concern and discussion. The way we live, move and behave as a community is to be reset. As architects and designers, the spaces we design can shape and influence the community’s behaviour and attitudes towards a healthier and safer society. What would be some shifts that we as designers should make in this regard?

2. The identity of temporal public spaces in an instantaneous society

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet3

As technology overtakes the contemporary world, we live in a world of instant messaging, online shopping and fast food. Everything is available at a click and the constant ‘feed’ of information and visuals train the mind to require constant change in scene and settings to be able to garner interest. How would public spaces cater to this constant ‘need’ of a changing landscape? What identity would temporal public spaces popping up in unexpected places hold in this instantaneous generation?

3. The role of community gardens in urban neighbourhoods | Community Architecture

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet4

While research increasingly indicates the need for the human-nature connection for healthy societies, the practical issues of over-population and urbanisation have resulted in tight urban neighbourhoods suffocating from lack of any form of natural/green spaces. Further aggravation is caused by the modern lifestyle that highly reduces neighbourly interactions making cities dead and lifeless. It is the role and responsibility of the designers to find creative ways to sustain these vital relationships. Could community gardens address this twin issue faced in increasingly urban neighbourhoods?

4. Creating resilient communities in the face of natural disasters

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet5

Natural disasters, while identifiable to an extent, are usually unexpected and leave behind unforeseen impacts and damages to not just infrastructure but also to communities. Therefore, it is highly significant in natural disaster management scenarios to not just address the rebuilding of a broken community but also measures to empower the communities to withstand and sustain any future disasters. Could past lessons help in creating a resilient future?

5. Resurfacing the persona of public architecture through placemaking | Community Architecture

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet6

While public architecture universally seeks to cultivate public interaction, the lack of an individualistic personality leads to a stale and stagnant space – a mindless repetition with no vitality. A downside of modern architecture is the ‘created labels’ for public architecture where every mall has an atrium and every city has a botanic garden . What makes these spaces distinct and enjoyably sustaining in the long run would be the unique character and connection they hold to the cultural context. Could we revive the persona of public architecture through the art of placemaking?

6. Redefining the public realm with modern technology

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet7

As modern technology permeates our life from daily routines to work to play, it is inevitable that the public realm which is the heartbeat of life in cities should incorporate these ‘tech components’. From using lights and projections to music and artificial intelligence , artists, engineers and designers have joined hands to create fabulous installations. What would the tech-public realm look like in the future?

7. Uplifting public spaces with universal access principles

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet8

Thanks to modern inventions , differently abled people can live and move independently. It is therefore imperative that public places are inclusive and easily accessible for such people. While newly created spaces are designed with their needs in mind, do we need to consider creative and practical upgrade measures to make existing public places universally accessible?

8. Aligning design to the voices of the community | Community Architecture

20 Thesis topics related to Community Architecture - Sheet9

While architecture has always been the art of expressing oneself – primarily the designer, when it comes to community architecture, a shift is required to make the end user the primary expression. As the community is the ultimate benefactor of the space, the voices of the community become chief drivers of communal design . Could we explore effective methods to blend the voices of the community into the creative and technical flair of the designers to attain a successful outcome?
