The Faculty of Architecture at Sri Sri University aims to engage effectively with the architectural needs of today, optimizing space and resources to sustainably resolve housing and development challenges.

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.

Testimonials

  • Anisha Sinha (MBA 1st year - Batch of 2016) B.Tech (Computer Science), Manipal University (Hometown - Patna)

    I came in with over five years of experience in Software Networking Products and Data Analytics. I wanted to do something different and so I chose Sri Sri University. And it has offered me some of the most intriguing challenges, a lovely atmosphere to work in and great opportunities for all round development. I am overwhelmed by the amount of positivity this campus exudes. No wonder we call it the 'happiest campus'!

  • Anmol Narang (MBA 1st year - Batch of 2016) B.Tech (Mechanical), Thapar University, Patiala (Hometown - Delhi)

    At Sri Sri University I got to organize conclaves and fests, manage studies and extracurricular activities and take charge of my own career. I got the opportunity to represent Sri Sri University in the B-school fests of IIM Calcutta and KIIT, and won a few competitions. Despite being a new university, I found that we are not only able to compete with older universities, we were even better than them in certain areas.

  • Utkarsh Jain (MBA 1st year - Batch of 2016) B.Tech (Chemical), IIT Delhi (Hometown - Jaipur)

    The most prominent add-ons are the avenues of personal growth, which are unimaginable in any other campus I have known (including the IIT where I studied). I am working on my venture of green buildings and here I have all the support I could have asked for. There is a dedicated faculty, supportive culture among students and the Art of Living network which offers a nurturing environment for entrepreneurs.
