Dean’s Message

The education of an architect, at its core, is not about knowhow, but “think-how.” And inculcating this ability fundamentally changes the student. The avant-garde architect is almost always at the vanguard of social change. Thus, the age old issue of a house became a “machine for living” for Le Corbusier in the 30s, typology for Gulio Argan in the 60s, the question of “to dwell” by the followers of Heideggar in the 80s, and a formal purist exercise for the 90s and soon with the new “digital-ready” generation, a physical interface—an analogue of the digital GI.  Thus, at its core, the education of the architect is about questioning; and this is what we focus here at Sharda University. There are, for us, four foundations in the education of an architect vocational skills, professional skills, liberal thinking and ethical. Vocational skills include not just drafting or model making, but also the 3s—space allocation, structures and services. Professional skills include not only “design thinking,” but also digital and parametric thinking. Third is the ability to question in a systematic and sustained manner. The ethical is obviously self-explanatory. As a School then, we dont valorise rote-learning, but “thinking by doing.” Architects make things. To paraphrase Marx, we change society.
