This session evolved out of a discussion on how does one read buildings? Here, one is looking for a simple basis or an understandable standard that would separate good design from being a merely acceptable one. There are several levels of acceptability which one could cover. Also looking for methods to empower students to understand a building, architecture & the built environment with a more holistic approach as opposed to the linear methods.
