Having accepted its first cohort of students in Fall 2013, Architecture is a small but steadily expanding department. While we aspire to match the academic standards of the best architectural schools across the globe and incorporate cutting-edge thinking in architectural pedagogy and practice, we also seek to install in our students, a strong sense of social engagement, environmental responsibility and professional ethics. With a foundational belief in design as a “Critical Practice” that can generate “public good” in the world, we take issue with the increasing instrumentality and commodification of architectural knowledge, education and production. We envision our graduates to be fully aware of the social, economic, political and cultural dynamics that shape the production of the built environment and to engage with them critically and innovatively in multiple scales from single buildings and construction details to large urban interventions. We pledge to educate the next generation of competent, creative and critical design professionals who can challenge the received conventions and fashionable trends of their discipline and are as interested in defining problems as they are in solving them. We conceptualize Architecture not just as a skill-based Profession but as a broader Humanistic Discipline. Accordingly, our curriculum is structured around a synergetic integration of theoretical and technical courses of the discipline with the insights of humanities, social sciences and cultural studies, all of them feeding into the interdisciplinary environment of the design studio enhanced by digital technologies (including our brand new Fab Lab). We seek to cultivate an academic culture... [-]
