Studio & Beyond
Studio environment and activities are planned to encourage investigation and teamwork, develop design thinking and improve communication and presentation skills using different media. Learning now extends into the digital space. The enormous amount of data available makes it challenging for students to determine its credibility. Our faculty use Google Classroom, to curate information and links in resource folders as a guided reference for students. Assignments are posted and can be received and remarked online. This enables an ease of feedback and transparent dialogue between our students and faculty.
Workshops & Special Events
Workshops on varied subjects like woodworking, photography, earth building, digital media & graphic design add to the repertoire of student skills. We organize Summer career exploration workshops that introduce students of year 10 & 12 to careers in Design and Architecture.
Our lecture series brings a diverse mix of distinguished guests as well as interesting young professionals to our campus. They engage with faculty and students to talk about their work and current topics of concern. This opens new avenues of interest, a wider practical perspective on many subjects and provides opportunities for networking.
Panel discussions and Design Charrettes
These increase awareness and engagement of the student with the larger community. In design charrettes experienced guest architects bring specific expertise across a broad variety of contemporary topics. They lead student teams in a rapid hands-on design generation process. These events introduce students to design issues in our locality that benefit from our architectural engagement.
