The process of designing is a creative activity. It is proposed that, at the cognitive level, one key to understanding design creativity is to understand the array of symbol systems designers utilize. These symbol systems range from being vague, imprecise, abstract, ambiguous, and indeterminate (like conceptual sketches), to being very precise, concrete, unambiguous, and determinate (like contract documents). This leads to a dual mechanism model of design problem-solving comprising of an associative engine and an inference engine. It is claimed that this dual mechanism model is supported by an interesting hemispheric dissociation in human prefrontal cortex. The associative engine and neural structures that support imprecise, ambiguous, abstract, indeterminate representations are lateralized in the right prefrontal cortex, while the inference engine and neural structures that support precise, unambiguous, determinant representations are lateralized in the left prefrontal cortex. At the brain level, successful design requires a delicate balance between the two hemispheres of prefrontal cortex.


Models, or sketch models, are sometimes made to study the interaction of volumes, different viewpoints, or concepts during the design process. They may also be useful in explaining a complicated or unusual design to builders, or as a focus for discussion between designers and consultants such as architects, engineers and town planners. Presentation models can be used to exhibit, visualize or sell a final design. a model are also used as show pieces, for instance as a feature in the reception of a building, or as part of a museum exhibition such as scale replicas of historical buildings.


To improve the students creative skills by giving design problems


  • To instigate and enrich the creativeness among the students of the club.
  • To give an exposure on latest technologies in the field of building science to the students.




  • The students will learn the design process for small and large scale projects.
  • The students will transform their design skill through models and in digital forms


The design club will be active four days in a month. Students will get a better exposure in design methodology. By giving a good design problem the students will give a good solution at the end of every month.
The student names and works will be displayed in the notice board at the end of each month. One workshop will be conducted by an architect/ architects every academic year.
One National level competition and one state level competition will be conducted based on the workshop conducted; the subject experts will decide the victors as a panel. The Victors will be awarded the “SICA?s DESIGN CLUBROLLING TROPHY”.
