The proposed programme allows students to consolidate their formative education and their experiences in practice by developing a deeper, more critical understanding by reading histories, theories and future applications of architecture. The programme aims to produce cutting-edge scholarship in the field of architectural history, philosophy and theory and to redefine practice as a process of developing a collective responsibility towards society. Additionally, the program will address specific challenges faced by the Indian context to create relevant solutions that contribute to its sustainable development.
The first year is focused on providing exposure to the students about various theoretical positions that shaped architecture throughout history until the contemporary time. It shall also introduce the different components of research and writing. A thorough understanding shall help them build their perspective of addressing the nuances of the built space.
The second-year is to explore and express the position that the students have developed in the previous semesters. They are introduced to advanced technology and sustainable positions in architecture. They are also encouraged to curate the content matter through research or design to voice their perspectives.
Graduates with Bachelor Degree in Architecture from COA recognised Institutions and a Minimum of 55% marks and 50% in case of SC/ST candidates are eligible.
The students will be required to submit a Statement of Purpose (SOP) and a portfolio of academic and /or practice work when invited for a personal interview.
The students may be offered campus jobs as research assistants, teaching assistants or with the university newsletters/design cells.
