Course Details

Faculty of Architecture at Sri Sri University (SSU) has made a humble but targeted beginning with a focus on sustainability in every aspect of the architectural discipline. SSU is dedicated to developing the best eco-sensitive building practitioners in the field.


Vision
Architecture at SSU is about nurturing stewardship towards our planet, making students conscious citizens who ‘revere nature, and honor the earth.’ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder - Sri Sri University

Blending tradition with modernity, a strong foundation will be laid for a meaningful curriculum that balances technically-sound and aesthetically-pleasing design principles in-tune with environmental thought leaders of the modern and ancient world.

Objective of the Curriculum at SSU
To blend theory and practice, vernacular and modern, research and design, into an innovative, practice-oriented curriculum aimed at a futuristic world that is sustainable and harmonious with nature. Further, to lay the mould for students to be ethical and ecologically-sensitive professional building-practitioners who combine intuitive and rational thinking to design for the Real World.

Faculty of Architecture
Emphasis is on hands-on learning through “Reading-Research-Rigor” in analysis. Students are encouraged to develop designs for habitats through charrettes and other participatory design methods, while exploring the depths of their creativity.
The focus is on human habitats- urban and rural settlements. Students learn to respect the complex interlinkages between humans and the ecosystem, thereby becoming good designers and rigorous researchers - professionals, striving to make this Earth a more livable planet for all her inhabitants. Students are encouraged to read from referred journals, reference books and electronic sources and guided to analyze and prepare reports on relevant topics in all subjects. Every student is exposed to construction site visits on campus regularly and to prepare sketches, and video recordings, maintain notes of jobs on site and report progress of work. In the process they interact with building practitioners, site supervisors and technicians on the one hand as well as with artisans and tradespersons on the other. They learn the essence of working in an interdisciplinary culture and to maintain open lucid communication channels, both cornerstones of effective management.

Environmental regeneration as a setting
The fast growing SSU campus has a lot of scope for students to be exposed to state-of-art building materials, techniques and technology. The campus has been developed by rejuvenating an abandoned open laterite quarry that offers opportunities of learning about sustainable building practices and closed-loop design.
