How to define limitations for your thesis Project?
Earlier we have discussed the following:
- Introduction to Thesis Project
- Guidelines for the assessment of the Final Project
- Thesis topic selection
Now we shall move on with a discussion on “Defining Limitations for a Design Thesis”.
Once the topic has been selected, you have to define the extent of your work. There is a lot of information that exists regarding a particular topic and you cannot include all.
You chose to design a Mini-town. The project area spans upto 220 acres minimum for a project like this. So you have to be very well aware as to where you would limit the scope of the project.
In my opinion, for a Mini-town project, you would have to limit your scope upto Master planning level. Detailed concepts and Master plan would be the most important. After you are done with it and you have time left for the project deadline, you could design a few specific structures in the project that you want to give emphasis on.
Narrow down your requirements to specifics to help you define your limitations. Collect data which you really need.
You should develop the capacity to produce one Design Thesis every month. So you have to be specific and brief and this has to be learnt.
We shall discuss the “Design Process of carrying out the Thesis Project”. That shall be of immense importance to the final year architecture students.
