Philosophy In the operational realities, if an attempt is made to highlight the ideological postures leading to the directions of value as accepted in all design-decisions resulting into tangible architectural ambient, the efforts are also directed towards creating a preference in the public mind for consumption of good design in their day to day living. The immediate surroundings is source of construction materials; snow, stone, straw, reed, wood or mud is the indigenous materials for constructing an enclosure.

The relationship between human being and the building being established, what develops and grows around becomes a measure for man and his society.
There is a place for everything and everything has its place. Spatial configuration in his design is an attempt to invoke a spirit that will establish a symbiotic bond between the present and the past.

FORM Realization of shelter form and its content are in response to a given place, climate, and time.


It is the aesthetics of openness contrasted with enclosures that highlights the different features from the rest of the faade.

Conclusion :
Uttam C. Jain is one of the great contemporary architect of India . His philosophy states that The relationship between human being and the building being established, what develops and grows around becomes a measure for man and his society . The use of arches , vaults , domes , squinches , pillars , cutouts in facades , courtyards , pergolas etc are the major elements of his design. The Jodhpur university is one of his great works indeed. He has come up with excellent solutions of the climate and space behavior. The stepped roofs , the sitting patterns , the use of stones , the use of cutouts for ventilation are his major features in it. Use of local materials with a good mixtures of modern technology makes his building a completely excellent response. A doctor buries his mistake and an architect builds his mistake. There are individuals who fail to understand what good architecture is all about. But U.C.Jain feels that, architecture begins after you put up four walls and a roof and that is what he call the non-manifest part. Architecture is like music. You can feel it but not see it. You have to comprehend and appreciate architecture. Architecture provides us with our basic biological needs but actually its realms go much further than that. His sense of creativity stems from what he add from his mind. There are the 3 'P's of architecture, namely, the personality of the architect, the product and the place. These have to be in synergy
