Philosophy

A master Architect surmises that Man’s decisions are different in quality from those of other animals, for man has the ability to affect the world around him by his decisions and to change its appearance and nature quite radically. Since man’s decisions have such great potentials for both good and evil, his responsibility is grave indeed. This is, in fact, one of the most important aspects of human predicament, that all man’s decisions change the world, that he cannot escape the decisions, and that he is conscious of the good or the evil he does, the beauty or the ugliness he creates.” (Hasan Fathy).


In this line of thought, we highlight the responsibility of an architect. Along with the realization of responsibilities comes the liberty to DESIGN. At the Cheran School of Architecture we guide students to design with shrewd observation and panache of another Master Louis Khan. As said elsewhere “A brick. Good. What else? A weapon. Louis Kahn said even a brick want to be something. A brick wants to be something, it aspires. Even a common, ordinary brick…Wants to be something more than it is. It wants to be something better than it is. That is what we must be.” 

Our graduates will gain knowledge in architectural design, urban design, construction technology and allied professions such as conservation, environment, product design, visual communication etc. The curriculum focuses on architectural design as the core discipline. Students are guided to realize and design appropriately respecting the cultural and environmental context. The result is an education which equips graduates with the creative, analytical and broad intellectual outlook.
