    Thank you for taking away the fear from this word “concept” which all of us architecture students struggle till the end of our design.

  4. shresthamanashi

    A much needed course to clarify everything from the basics to decoding the brief and coming up with your own concept. Thank you for the opportunity to learn things that aren’t taught in the college. Looking forward to join future webinars as well.

  5. Vinitha Milevahanan

    Myself, Vairoshini and Harretha are friends from the same class and we are here for the past 3 courses – Thesis, Case Study and Site Analysis and now Briefs and Design Concepts. We are currently doing our Urban design and next will be our Thesis. The whole process of the courses made us think, visualize, share and relate to each other in terms of design. And most importantly thanks for the positive vibes and interesting and understandable sketches and presentations which we can recollect easily anytime.
