CURRICULUM A curriculum for Architectural Education evolves from the nature of man and of society, and of its aims

and aspirations, its expressional potentials. It states the relationships between man, his institution, his techniques and its interpretation in spatial and physical terms. A curriculum is a statement of intentions, which in its structure states the relationships between disciplines and courses, clarifying objectives, stating emphasis and points of view. The aim of architectural education as it is recognized is to train the mind to perceive the context of man and society in its best potential, to interpret it through developed skills of expression into a sustainable and qualitative living environment. The Context The context of Indian Society brings together the inheritance of an ancient culture, its history, thought, philosophy, arts and architecture and its varied and multiple expressions, and the challenges of a contemporary society with an evolving new social order, thought, philosophy, new techniques and potentials of new expressions. It demands continuity with the ethos of the past, its sense of place; along with the capacity for continual rethinking and the need for transformed expressions of the present time. This is made more poignant in an economic order of dramatic variations that demand architectural attention. The significant developments of the past few years and the indications for the future which must be reflected in the curriculum include: Environmental concerns: an increasing awareness of the fragility of the man made environment and issues of balance of the manmade with the natural order. Issues of optimal use of natural resources, and sustainable development. Range of technological options: The validity of appropriate technology and use of local techniques and their continued relevance in developing economics, and on the other hand the access to sophisticated high technology and its use for present day building tasks in a globalising urban environment. Rate of change of Cultural Dimensions: The rootedness of Indian society and value systems on the one hand and the effect of global universal culture on the other hand. The impact on value systems: In a fast changing, and largely materialistic society the need to develop human values that recognise the role of the architectural professional as an enabler, a form giver, with an ability to take positions. The changing Role of the Profession: changes towards managing and coordinating varied specialized skills and professions and yet to give a humanizing quality to the built environment.

These reflect in increasing concern with courses on Environmental Balances, Appropriate Technology, Advanced Technological Systems, course on Indigenous cultural roots and global impacts, and Professional Management Systems. In Design Process these imply co-ordination of multiple dimensions of specialized inputs and modern media and methods Goals The curriculum in stating a set of relationships and emphasis, and of methods, aims to develop an individual rooted in his/her context of society and place in India, capable of the disciplines and skills through which to interpret them into a qualitative physical environment. It aims at an individual committed to excellence and relevance. The major concerns the next few years will need to address are: • • Sensitivity to environmental balances between the Man made and Natural systems – An architecture rooted in place, climate and the social conditions of India. The concern with Technological expression that uses the most appropriate choice of material and technique whether traditional or modern to the nature of the task, and makes the most appropriate use of resources and process at hand. The development of an Architecture for the Indian conditions that continue from the Indian tradition and make modern day transformations. An architecture strongly related to the definition of the urban condition. The Education of an Architect capable of the vision, value systems and competence to bring together the multiple dimensions of the Architectural task to integral qualitative built environment.

The Curriculum

The curriculum states three major streams. The FIRST is oriented to MAN, SOCIETY and EXPRESSIONS, and deals with the development of culture, thought, philosophy, arts and sciences and their impact on the world. It deals with the areas of HUMANITIES and SOCIAL SCIENCES as well as ARTS and CRAFTS. The SECOND is oriented to TECHNOLOGY, and deals with the understandings of man, of the physical world, of materials, their properties, behaviour and techniques through which man has shaped his physical built environment; of the elements of the physical world that he must control and harness to give physical comfort. It deals with areas of CONSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS and SERVICES STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS and ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES as well as MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.

The THIRD and central discipline, is oriented to SYNTHESIS, of the forces of man and society, of the nature and needs of social institutions, interpreted through physical environment. This is the field of DESIGN SYNTHESIS. It deals with the development of design sensibility and skills, the development of value systems and identified positions, through the study of HISTORY and THEORY of ARCHITECTURE, Development of BASIC DESIGN LANGUAGE and SKILLS, and the use of contemporary MEDIA and METHODS. From the first stream, knowledge is gathered about man, his needs and their myriad expressions, from the second stream, understandings are developed about the nature of the physical world, environmental phenomena, and building possibilities. The Design Studio brings these understandings together in developing expressions for the needs of human institutions in space and form that answers to integrity between part and whole and conducive to a qualitative living environment.

Development of Sensibility and skills Course Structure The course structure and relative emphasis between sub-disciplines vary depending on their position within the course. The First year emphasize the development of background, sensibility, skills and its disciplines, and is considered as the FOUNDATION YEAR. The Second and Third years emphasize the Interrelationships between disciplines and their resolutions into integral totals of increased complexity and are considered the DEVELOPMENT YEARS. The Fourth and Final Years emphasize the development of the individual, his/her maturity, and establishment of directions and is termed the EXPOSITION years, during which the student develops his/her theoretical understandings and skills or design synthesis to personal choice of directions, and to a high quality of manifested resolutions.

Credit Loads

The course is of 5 years – 10 semesters duration. The year consists of 2 semesters of approximately 16 weeks each. Each semester carries a contact load of 24 credits, where 1 credit is equivalent to 1.0 lecture hour/week in theoretical subjects and 1.5 contact hours for studio, workshop, laboratory based courses. Each semester normally consists of, in addition to the Design Studio, not more than 6 subjects and each subject is normally of atleast 2 credits. In addition to subjects that form the CORE of the curriculum the course offers 20 credits out of a total of 240, as ELECTIVES. These electives are offered within the disciplines of HUMANITIES, ARTS and CRAFTS: HISTORY AND THEORY, and TECHNOLOGY, so that a student can develop his/her interests in these areas, and design the emphasis structure he/she wishes to follow.

Assessment

Student performance is continually evaluated through programs, projects, tests, quizzes and periodic assessments of sessions work. Generally at least 60% of the assessment is through this system, and not more than 40% weight is assigned to end of semester examinations. All core subjects are examined at the end of the semester through juries, crits, viva-voce or examination papers. Electives are normally assessed through assignments or papers. In order to clear a subject a student must obtain at least 50% marks in all the assessments of the subject. While grading is done by the teaching faculty in all subject areas, the subjects at the end of the Fifth Year are examined additionally by an external examiner.
