Point in Architecture

Point in architecture is about relatability,
Relatability where the human feels belonged,
The merge of structures with sky and water where every human wants the life to prolonged,
Water and sky are seamless elements that liven up the whole architecture,
With different time in a day gives you the whole new painting and a vision for future.
I was a lost kid when asked why architecture,
Found my answer with the experience of roads and not a google with the real picture,
Water, my friend is though 70% in human and helps you to live,
Appreciating its existence is an architecture’s need.
Sky is free and makes the structure effortless,
With just the change in position of the sun gives your structure a new paint with light and shadow,
The experience becomes limitless.
Modernism made human reached sky but the ground is so far that he lost the vision for the sky,
Yes, due to the land scarcity and increasing population there is a need of height,
But not so much that it becomes human existence’s fight.
Architect is the greatest artist to have the endless elements like sky and water,
Other artist has limited paints, red, blue and green,
But remember my friend! we this world’s writer.
So, lets write a story with every human as a protagonist,
Let them see the endless possibilities in water and a sky to feel free.
Relatability is structure being in the vision line so that every element can be appreciated,
Let human choose his point in architecture for multiple visions and experience to be created.
POINT IN ARCHITECTURE IS ABOUT RELATIBILITY,
Because with relatability human will just feel apprehended.
Now, is the time to think of this as the most important element in the architecture,
Otherwise, one day, it will be just concrete jungle where humans will have aim for the future
But the experience that is eternal will take departure.

Point in Architecture

Architecture over the years has witnessed deformation, reconstruction, revolution as well as deconstruction.
Idea, Medium and Result are fundamentally the three basic principles for any artists, craftsmen or architects. But, the sole necessity to develop a concept or an idea is to deliver its purpose; in layman terms, to prove a point. The notion of ‘Point’ has not always been conceptual or intangible for that matter, the origin of very tangible realities or rather geometries where we reside in, are nothing but a complex juxtaposition of points.

Through my artwork, I wanted to represent the true complexity of ‘Point’ by merging both the geometric reality of a constructed space- the photograph on the left; and the juxtaposition of the same with the digital realism, to complete a composition.
Since the functional purpose of the subject (that is, the building) was not truly showcasing, the renders along the middle and the right, balances the functionality that the building claims to house, a communal plaza.

2nd Prize winner

Swapnil Biswas


I am a fourth year B.Arch student from School of planning and architecture, New Delhi. Also an illustrator, graphic designer and a curious photographer.


As per my understanding of architecture over these years, I believe that the art of designing spaces has a purpose to narrate a story. These stories then tend to stitch together to form a muse. I empathize to give priorities to various mediums and concepts through my works, which in turn forms a backbone for the muse.

Point in Architecture

The point in the photograph shows the amalgamation of many pictures in different perspectives defining the thought of the designer whilst taking concepts in his mind. Each perspective snapped from a different angle signifies the ebb and flow of a graph during the building process. Various photographs collated followed by the mix of elements, where we reach our focal point of elemental point in architecture. Not only the building elements matter while talking about architecture but the space as a whole. The natural elements too play a vital role in shaping the architecture of a place. The blue sky tell us no matter how far we go we got to stick to the ground, the tress notifies us of the changing seasons as the fickling mood of the humans, the blossoming flowers make the most stressful of the day the most colourful, the stars and the moonlight makes the darker shine, the sunlight brings another day of a happy struggle, the rain tells us to take a break from our busy life and enjoy for a while, while the soil is where we start from and where we die and the humans in the die is what the world is about. They are not just elements but emotions of the people living in and around that lively building. Therefore the point in architecture is not just the elemental approach but how elements can combine with each other and wake the dead to live.

Point in Architecture

Structure plays an important role in architecture, and we cannot have successful projects without a well-studied structure. But What if we can look at it from an aesthetic side?

The image highlights the role of the structure alongside other parts of the building to create an amazing view that humans can enjoy. And at the end, they will merge at one point in the sky.

Point in Architecture

The founding element of everything – Point, also shows the position.
This photograph shows how when I put myself at a particular point was I able to get the Perspective of this Staircase. Architecture has different points of perspective formations depending on the positioning of the viewer.
The two contrary concepts of point and perspective are well balanced in this image. Point doesn’t have length, width or depth and perspective needs them all to be defined. Perspective is a series of vanishing points.
With the rise in creating more scenic and sophisticated forms in architecture, perspectives have been the most beautiful ones till date. They are easily eye pleasing and require the bare minimum to exist. One-Point perspectives have been the easiest of them all to be found and identified.
A photograph is considered to be the most powerful form of visual communication as it is momentary based. A moment once gone is never coming back.
This is a photograph of the fire-escape staircase of an apartment building in Bangalore, Karnataka, India.

Point in Architecture

The point is the most fundamental element of architecture, creating the space through the process of forming lines, surfaces and breps. This process embodies the significance of the use of space. We cannot deny the significance of this real function for the user, but at the same time we cannot ignore the role of this space in meeting the spiritual needs of people. Therefore, the point in architecture is given more meaning.

Our submission is a bookstore design project. It is located at the foot of the mountain, next to the ring road. It is a good place to go when people want to relax at the end of the weekday. The overall design creates a quiet and relaxing environment, where the building blends in with its surroundings. People can enjoy the tranquility and forget the hustle and bustle of the city.

In this work the points can be interpreted as the basic elements of the space as well as the atmosphere. The reflected light from the sun shining on the glass gives a warm and peaceful feeling, the use of Klien Blur in the interior design gives a sense of clarity and openness and the warm slogans that the users inadvertently see will regroup them. These particular points create a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere that satisfies people’s spiritual needs. This is one of the important aspects of the architectural design.

Honourable mention

Ruiqi Xu 


I’m Ruiqi Xu from China. I got my Bachelor of Architecture in the Qingdao University of Technology. And now I’m doing my master degree of architecture in The University of Sheffield in UK. I think architectural design is not just to meet people's needs for space. We need to consider more about the meaning of architecture for people's spiritual world and how to meet people's spiritual needs. This may be the reason why I continue to explore architectural design.


Runze Tian


I’m Runzetian from China. I got my Bachelor of Architecture in the Qingdao University of Technology. And now I’m doing my master degree of architecture in the Zhejiang University in China. I like watching movies.As far as I am concerned,a movie is a narrative space while an architecture is a special narration.The point of architecture,which is a counterpart of the scene of a movie, is not only a basic unit of a complicated system,but also an abstract symbol of a thought.
