The student participants are required to identify a suitable rural or urban community, undertake social, cultural, environmental and physical surveys and analysis before developing design brief and proposing a design synthesis.

The proposed design should be people and environment friendly and should be evolved with active participation of the people and the community. It should be energy efficient and should have sustainable infrastructural services, such as supported by alternate source of energy, water harvesting, recycling of wastes. It should have good accessibility and should be linked to the surrounding neighbourhoods and community through pedestrian linkages. It should be accessible through private and public transportation systems. It must provide for adequate parking facilities for cars, buses and bicycles. It must be harmoniously related to other community facilities and open spaces. The design proposal should aim at generating awareness about humane and sustainable architecture. The project may have a small area with a high density of development or a large area with low density development. It may use state of the art / appropriate and sustainable technologies. The complex may be spread over an area of 5 to 10 hectares, approximately zoning of the project may include 15% of the area shall be for sports/recreation. 10-15% for social/public interaction spaces, 10-15% for transportation and infrastructure with proper accessibility and parking facility. 55-65 % of area may be used for the buildings and facilities housing the regional social, cultural and arts centre.
