Architects have to become designers of eco-systems. Not just designers of beautiful facades or
beautiful sculptures, but systems of economy and ecology, where we channel the flow not only of
people, but also the flow of resources through our cities and buildings.
Avani's five-year undergraduate program in Architecture aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and methods for planning and design of buildings, settlements and habitats that are responsive to the contextual forces derived from the culture, history and physical attributes of each site. This is further reinforced by exposure to environmental and social awareness that is an integral part of such a broad academic program. In addition to the core subject of architectural design the undergraduates are exposed to a range of disciplines like history and theory of design, social studies, visual arts etc, which aim to mould creative intellectuals and responsible citizens, who will confidently tackle the ever evolving concerns of our built environment.
The interaction between academia and the professional practice is critical in evolving professionals with a wide and practical perspective. To develop a close understanding of the context and the design practice, Avani will be associated with some of the best practitioners from India and abroad, who will provide expert guidance to the students as they progress through the rigorous program.
