RTMNU Revised B.Arch Sem 7 Syllabus 2021

Human Settlement Planning

Preface:

This Subject Sets up the premise for domain which is beyond Architecture. Architecture which is confined to a boundary with single ownerships and single land parcels, The domain of Human settlement allows to look at the multiple Owners and Multiple Land parcels.

This domain of humanity which has strong connect with how cities / settlements have grown over times has strong reflections of Culture, History, social Values, Lifestyle and sense of community.

Architecture as integrated part of this Urban Fabric, has strong reflections of cities urban form, values and cultural ethos, which are manifested in built environment with strong sense of belongingness and association. Sensitizing Students to make them aware of broad principles of settlement in such period will help them know how cities have grown and taken shape over a period of time and what has been reflection into Architecture, being integrated part of the urban Domain .

The History of Architecture and theory’s are deeply rooted into the settlement pattern of the urban fabric and hence the study of this subject shall focus on 2 major domains:

Landscape Architecture II

Objectives:

To make students aware about relationship and response of man to his environment. To develop critical thinking towards the field of landscape and understand its scope in practical.

Unit I: Site Planning And Development.

Site Location:

The site must be placed within its proper geographical, political, and functional context. This fixes the site in relation to adjacent land uses, community transportation patterns, utility and infrastructure availability, employment,
commercial, cultural and recreational centers.

Existing Conditions: Depending upon the size and complexity of the site, this may be one or a series of base plans or maps that delineates and evaluates the physical attributes and constraints for the parcel of land. Topography and Slopes: Treatment of these factors requires base information in the form of contours and elevations to a degree of accuracy appropriate to the proposed development.

Geology and Soils: The soils characteristics which are frequently a direct product of the underlying geology. The soils may be important in terms of stability, suitability for structural foundations, erosion susceptibility, surface drainage, and soil fertility to support plant growth.

Vegetation:

Detailed plant identification and location of specimen plants may require field study and measurement. The significance of vegetative information relates to a range of development issues. The visual character and spatial definition of a site is impacted by the amount and category of vegetation – from ground cover
to canopy, from new growth to mature stands of trees, etc.

Hydrology and Drainage:

Surface hydrology is an integral part of the slopes and subsurface drainage systems. The kinds of information normally indicated and analyzed include determination of watersheds (basically a system of ridge lines and valleys or drainage patterns), duration and volume of flow, swales, streams, standing water, and flood plain definition. Susceptibility to erosion and the problem of sedimentation to off-site water flow are also problems to be noted.

Views:

A visual analysis is the most practical means of determining positive and negative on-site and off-site views. This study is useful in determining the visual character of the site itself as viewed from the outside as well as the visual impact of its surroundings upon potential on-site development. Factors to be examined include mass and space definition from natural and man-made elements, off-site views to be accentuated or screened, and on-site view opportunities or problems

Unit II: Landscape Design Project

Application and implementation of landscape elements into a design for a residential areas, urban spaces, campus design at institutional & industrial level, reclaimed lands, etc.
