ACADEMIC: Philosophy, Positions held, Invited Lectures delivered

My work in Architecture has always integrated a pursuit in academics, research and professional work. In this pursuit, I have tried to develop systemic approach to architectural education which is presented herewith and was put into operation at the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi.
The entire curriculum structure for the five years period of instruction is articulated into streams i.e. Humanities & Social Sciences, Arts & Crafts, Skills, Technology and Environment.
It is envisaged through this systemic approach to integrate various streams into the studio structure that spans across various streams both in time and space.
Hopefully students emerging out of this approach will be able to pursue profession of Architecture in a wholesome manner.
