Ar. Tony Joseph, Chairman and Principal, said “Architecture and design do not exist in isolation but are closely integrated with the visual and liberal arts, social and cultural norms, philosophy, and technological advances. Design has to evolve as a collaborative endeavour to engage with the unique challenges of contemporary society. Avani’s interdisciplinary curriculum and facilities empower the graduates with critical thinking to confidently approach and tackle these concerns, to achieve their creative potential, and become thought leaders in their respective fields.”

The five-year undergraduate program aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and methods for planning and design of buildings, settlements, and habitats that are responsive to the contextual forces derived from the culture, history, and physical attributes of each site. This is further reinforced by exposure to environmental and social awareness that is an integral part of such a broad academic program. In addition, the undergraduates are exposed to a range of disciplines like history and theory of design, social studies and visual arts.
