Emerging forms are not preconceived. They come into existence through a process and a chain of events that take into consideration the external forces acting on the form and the interaction between individual elements of the composition. Designed forms are a development of an idea or a concept that may be a result of intuition or impression. This research paper deals with exploring a method of conceptualizing a form which is supportive to the structural concepts and is shaped at the hands of a craftsman / designer.
