Architecture influences all aspects of the built environment and brings together the arts, environmental awareness, sciences and technology. By combining creative design with technical knowledge, architects create the physical environment in which people live, which in turn, influences quality of life.
As a substantial contributor to the design of our cities and towns, architecture also has a significant role to play in improving social inclusion and, in turn, health outcomes in our communities. Located in the unique multidisciplinary lush green campus of St. Peter’s Institute of Higher Education and Research, the Department of Architecture offers undergraduate program in Architecture (B. Arch.). The St. Peter’s School of Architecture (COA Code: TN-48) was started in the year 2012 and the B.Arch. program offered is approved by the Council of Architecture, New Delhi. Since then, it has come a long way as a vibrant and collaborative learning community. The Department has 15 teaching faculty and 2 non-teaching faculty as per COA Norms.
We teach our student to take responsibility for designing our future. We, help students develop the values, knowledge, skills, and practices they need to create better architecture, interiors, and environments that resonate with the culture of people, physical, economical and ecological background. The Department of architecture emphasise collaboration and a noncompetitive but rigorous learning environment. Our supportive studio culture facilitated through peer teaching and teamwork doesn’t dictate a specific design aesthetic or ideology for you to follow. Instead, we encourage intellectual inquiry as the basis from which you forge your own design path.
We teach not only the overall aesthetics of a city or region by pushing the boundaries of design and style, we also make our student aware of their invaluable contributions to the quality of life, public health and sustainability of any given region, by adopting a dynamic approach to the planning, design and maintenance of the built environment with respect to population growth, demographic change and climate change.
