About Faculty of Architecture & Design
Architecture often considered as mother of all arts is both a challenge & an opportunity at the same time. It has evolved from being a planning based exercise to a volumetric based experience.
We encourage the students to play with the 3D forms and how it affects the built environment and increases human interaction.
Architecture, in the most simple terms, particularly to a layman, would mean the “Art and Science of Designing Buildings”.
One would assume that as “Built Form” it is something which is Measureable, or Quantitative in nature and hence Tangible, or IS IT? It is anything but that. It is more Qualitative that Quantitative. It is in fact intangible. It is something which is beyond Measure and Mundane. It is Fluid, Dynamic, like Waves of Ocean. It is always there, ever present, Constant in a way but also ever changing. Forming and Breaking, again and again.Constant yet Changing? Strange is it not? Intriguing, Surreal or Mystical, or all of it together. Yes, it is all of it put together.
To be able to really see Architecture, you need to see it through your Mind’s eye. Just like sometimes you travel from thought to thought and not from place to place. Then only you can interpret or reinterpret the Space and all the mysteries, the word Space encompasses including its Spirit. The Spirit of Architecture is an outcome of its Essence. It is manifested through a medium like Built Form. Just like a beautiful thought is conveyed beautifully through Poetry. Subtle, indirectly yet right in your face. Like saying “I love you” without actually saying it, like saying it through your eyes only and not through spoken words, for Architecture is Visual Music.
At Manav Rachna one can learn the Art of conveying MORE through LESS. Experience the Sound of Silence, the Silence of Simplicity, and the true Architecture.
We offer future professionals a holistic educational experience and prepare them for an exciting and challenging career ahead in the industry and imbibing the spirit of creativity, teamwork and entrepreneurship.
