Learning is the most important thing in school life. Learning depends on teaching and learning style. Every student in grades 6 through 12 is engaged in a passive learning style, which provides education but not knowledge. Different teaching methodologies are referred to as pedagogy. The main idea of the project is that children have to learn from built space by using a combination of an active learning process guided by basic visual concepts of math and science through built spaces, demonstration spaces, and a (collaborative and liberationism) teaching style. And teaching style changes the design process.
The space changes with time change. As of now, I have created some theory concepts from the built space. In the future, the present student will make expo spaces as a demonstration for upcoming students. This chain keeps on repeating.

Integrated natural and mechanical systems give shape to a vision of architecture as a scaffold that regenerates ecosystems and facilitates community empowerment. In an answer to the age-old question of why our cities stagnate while their population and climate undergo rapid transformation, this project, began by challenging current urban planning models that prioritized the built over the unbuilt. Our communities are drowning- economically & soon physically too. The project distills principles of environmental, social & economic sustainability for superior quality of life in the city. It envisions environmental sustainability in 2022, social sustainability by 2035, and economic sustainability by 2050. The project proposes an urban park enveloping a high-rise system. Natural systems are integrated into a tower to create a holistic self-sustainable ecosystem- a tower of flux as a catalyst for change. The urban park offers recreational & learning facilities for the community. Biodiversity & natural water resources are carefully preserved on site, and the land is protected from haphazard horizontal urbanization. This serves as a resilient model of urban planning, fostering a symbiotic relationship between people and nature, the present and the future.

Due to climate change, there are large number of disasters taking place in India. It faces recurring atmospheric phenomena like floods, heavy monsoon rains, cyclones, earthquakes, drought etc. These natural disasters take thousands of lives, cost millions of money, and result in loss of large number of lives. Out of all these natural disasters in India, flood is one of the most affected and dangerous disaster. Assam having the Brahmaputra River with more than 50 numbers of tributaries causes the flood devastation in the monsoon period each year. Out of all the districts in Assam, Dhubri district has river Brahmaputra flowing through the centre of it and faces flood almost every year which adds to the vulnerability of people and building stocks. The main aim is to create resilient house design by using different flood resilient strategies which can sustain itself in the situation of flood and can save lives of people during these difficult times and can ensure that the impacts of disaster are manageable and short-lived. The built community and houses are a prototype which can be repeated to flood prone areas and can sustain itself. The built community and houses to become resilient, have to be climate responsive and rebound during the events of floods.

The project responds to the current climatic conditions faced by the people of Salmora Gaon, Majuli Island resulting in loss of occupation, there rich culture and shelter. Due to mismanagement many villagers especially the female population faces sanitation problems, many try to temporary shift towards the highland area were they are unable to serve their families. A step towards addressing these problems is providing the right platform and injecting the right program.
Thus a proposed architectural intervention away from the flood zone will act as a social agency not only provides a temporary shelter for the villagers to survive in flood but also a mean for the upliftment of the community by evolving the local construction techniques of Salmora gaon. The program born out of research needs of the community renders the proposal relevant, while acknowledging the need for it to be sustainable in every sense of the word. Meanwhile when there is no flood situation the centre will act as a bridge to connect the local people and the visitors to spread their culture which is slowly decreasing, to spread knowledge about their culture.

The Major intention of this project is not just to create a resilient habitat for environmental change but also which cherishes climate change. This is an attempt to make a symbiotic relationship between humanity and Aquatic Reservoirs understanding Global Environmental Issues and the Complexion of Future Habitats.
Humanity has learned to live with elements of nature but mankind has lacked the development of inhabited spaces on water. So far we are avoiding water rather than embracing the challenges of water with its properties and characteristics. Hence a solution to a Human Habitat can be able to float and adapt to water properties.
The current habitat is a result of years of evolution and the habitat of the future would also be years of evolution, Possible Parameters triggering evolution could be Robust Transportation, Digital Communication and Artificial Intelligence, less dependency upon physical infrastructure, and more productive and green belts ensuring local food ecology and high nutrition system providing a healthy lifestyle to an individual. This habitat follows Equitable Approach and culmination of technology, environmental sensitivity, and human emotional traits, Improving standards for wealthier being along with a simple, healthier, and productive environment, An Individual gets sufficient opportunities in an Ideal environment.
