WELCOME TO DEPT OF ARCHITECTURE
Message from Head
of The Department
Architecture education is an academic pursuit which involves learning by creative thinking and experiencing built environment. Grounded in a multidisciplinary structure, the Department of Architecture of MIST offers 5 years Bachelor of Architecture program that emphasize a supportive studio culture through facilitated peer teaching and teamwork. The department encourages intellectual inquiry as the basis to forge individual design path. The Department’s philosophy of design excellence integrates the imaginative and skillful manipulation of form, as well as the ability to draw inspiration from a broad spectrum of knowledge. The architecture curriculum includes design studio, theory, visual studies, history, technology, and professional practice, with design as the central focus of instruction. Architecture faculty and students explore a range of design investigations, expand knowledge, and confront the challenges of the contemporary built environment. Our design-studios form both the physical and pedagogical core of the department. The creative, collaborative atmosphere of the department enable architecture students to develop, discuss, exchange, and materialize ideas through a comprehensive range of platforms and process that are further enriched by the department’s parallel learning events, exhibitions and publications. As new ways of thinking emerge in the profession of architecture, the field grows increasingly complex and requires new techniques of inquiry and design. MIST educates committed individuals who have assumed leadership roles in shaping the built environment.
