Water Terminal - thesis help
I am a student in my final year of an undergraduate architecture program. My thesis topic is to design a water terminal in Mumbai. I will be designing local, national, and international terminals along with a fishing jetty.
I would like to know of any case studies relating to water terminals, as I am having difficulty finding any.
I am also trying to find out what criteria one should use to determine how many boats and ships a terminal would be serving.
In addition, I would be greatly appreciative if anyone could suggest some web sites where I can find water terminal or airport plans.

Hi Bharadwaj:

You can look through Time Savers Standard, which is very western based. I would suggest, do a casestudy of a typical vernacular water terminal in your location, through observations, note taking and sketching, more like a reconnisance survet. Then do a comparative analysis, between what conditions are existing, and what time saver standards suggest and where is the void of issues. That will create a playground for you to work and set your design objective and parameters to explore. It will strengthen your design target for your project.
