Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (MRSPTU), Bathinda’ Training & Placement department organised an educational visit to Punjab Vidhan Sabha- a UNESCO World Heritage site as a part of Chandigarh capitol complex on Wednesday for the students of School of Architecture and Planning,MRSPTU.
Sharing the information, the head of department, Dr. Bhupinder Singh Dhot , Director- Training & Placement Harjot Singh Sidhu and Dean Industry Linkages and consultancy, Dr. Manjeet Bansal said “During the visit students were informed about the design philosophies of the master architect Le Corbusier.
While looking at the tapestries, murals and paintings students related Corbusier’s colour theory with his works. The concept of brutalism was clearly visible through fine finish of exposed concrete which contains different motifs related to Indian culture and architecture.
Accompanying experts briefed about the history, technological up-gradation, circulation patterns, services etc. Internal treatment of spaces shows the perfect application of studies related to acoustics, natural lighting, ventilation, scale and proportion.
students were amazed to see the incorporation of two different structure systems i.e. Bulk Active and Surface Active in a single building. Students admired the science of controlling direct solar gains on visiting ‘Tower of Shadow’ which is a part of Capitol Complex. Le Corbusier has incorporated this science very well in all the buildings of the complex by the efficient use of external shading devices.
Director-Training & Placement Harjot Singh Sidhu expressed sincere gratitude to the Hon’ble Speaker Vidhan sabha S. Kultar Singh Sandhwan for providing MRSPTU students the opportunity to visit the Vidhan Sabha.
The visit to Heritage site for the students is an important part of learning and our university aims to keep our student interaction with the real world.’ he added.
