Student Testimonials

  • For me the most interesting part about architecture is working in studios which are notorious for long nights, intensive model making and desks overflowing with trace papers. And the most important aspect of studio life is the student professor relationship. When learning about architecture, there is no replacement for practical expression.

It’s important to be well organized and plan each day . If you’re very interested in being an architect, you’ll find you have passion for your work , which will ensure you stay focused.

    FIFTH YEAR
  • I really love architecture. I feel it has made me a very different person, from my confidence, time management, group skills and all, they improved drastically. And in this course, we have to get to visit so many places in and around our city and view them all in different point of perspective. As we are used to getting grounded so much that it helps us leave behind all our inhibitions and enjoy the course and work no matter.

    KEERTHANA R
    FOURTH YEAR
  • I’ve resolutely learnt that Architecture doesn’t deal only with the Form, Material or Construction. But also is cognate with Human values, Expressions, Ethics, Virtues, Morals and Principles.
    Just like Nature, a simple change at particular point in Architecture has the ability to induce an emotion within a person.

    Elesh Vidul TV

  • Architecture exhibits and manifest the past and shall morph and dictate the future of human civilization
    It tells stories and will continue to do so, of humans, what they are best known for admiration and creativity.
    I would like to express my part of story, that will carry on for centuries, being a part to morph and dictate the future of best to come. Most of all being an admiration to others.

    Krishna B S
    Third Year
  • I see architecture as lifestyle more than a course, it reflects culture, and you’ll get the sense that it’s less of a profession and more of a world-view, a lens with which to interpret all of your surroundings.
    I believe creativity, exploration ,travel, humility, intellectuality are all fruits of the tree ‘ARCHITECTURE’.

    Kalyan R
    First Year
  • Architecture-It’s a journey without a endpoint because you can never stop learning and creating. As long as you find inspiration around you, the architect within you is never dead. It’s a beautiful medium to unlock oneself and express their thoughts into artform; exploring and experimenting it practically. It has changed my approach towards life, adding professionalism and making me a better person.
