Thesis: Informal spaces in architecture schools
I am an architecture student from New Delhi, India. My dissertation topic is about informal activity spaces in schools of architecture.

Often seen in such situations is that such spaces come up in an improvised manner rather than in a predetermined way. I would really appreciate any references for reading in this context, or any case studies or more.

There was a conference in Utah some years ago, on 'creativity'. Look at the proceedings of that, if you can find. There they talked about the qualities of the creative person who marked higher or lower on several attributes. For example, they marked higher on 'social presence' but lower on 'socialization'. Similarly, some relationship they established with the pace of walking. I used it in my school projects in 1994. I don't remember too much but if you can find, that can be a good thesis topic. 'The Conditions of Creativity' or 'The qualities of a Creative act'

Hi,
I agree to your point, but this can be accessed only through the net as it is not available in the libraries of my country.
