Architecture is a creative art with a lot of science embedded into this art. Being the mother of all art forms, the responsibility of an Architect is much more in the society at large. His creations will be standing there and no one can avoid seeing it. But Architectural design is also a science driven process. The purpose of this book is to share and note down the various aspects of this process of going through the exercise of Architectural Design. How much added Services and Engineering knowledge is required for an Architect to captain his project? What are the dos and don’ts of this process? How to avoid making mistakes and latter correcting them at someone else’s' cost. There is a theory to this entire game of dreams, which I call the Theory of Architecture : C2C. What are the various steps that lead us from one to another? This book tries to document this process and share the experience that I have gained in my exposure to this grand industry.
