Design ‘School of Architecture’ – Think vertical create vertical
An architecture institute is the epicenter of architectural design all across the world as this is the phase in every architect or designer’s life which sets the benchmarks for his/her upcoming career thus further shaping the infrastructure around us.
Seeds of new building typologies, design innovations, art movements and revolutions are planted at the various schools of architecture across countries through time. The environment, knowledge, education, exposure and ethics absorbed by an individual at an architectural institute indirectly defines the future of the entire mankind.
All these aspects of learning and conceiving architecture ought to be transformed from time to time with changing materials, construction techniques, cultures, values, lifestyles and ideologies but are often neglected through many generations until a necessity is felt by the governing authorities.
We proudly take the initiative to reach out to the minds creative enough to shed light over such temporal factors and provide revolutionary perspectives to these aspects.
Keeping these and many such aspects in consideration, we have taken the bold initiative to call for architects, designers, students of architecture, professional from other field to bring forth their ideas for a fresh perspective towards an architecture school in an urban setting where the future is dwelling on VERTICALITY
Archdux Competition Jury Comments
Jan Dieterle, Germany
“The participants thought up new ways of architectural learning and interpreted them into a building. Key issues that I find particularly important are spaces of freedom for experiments and a strong interaction of the education with the urban context. The works show several approaches, but also different degrees of elaboration and a high quality of individual graphical representation. The interaction with the urban environment is represented by visual links as well as having a sort of real-world laboratories – enabling the students to trial and error in reality. Therefore I like many of the approaches that are in favor of a processual character of the school of architecture, to adapt to changing paradigms and to facilitate an inspiring learning environment!”

“It was a very exciting brief – to design a school of architecture. What makes it intriguing is the fact that all architects have strong collective memories of the physical spaces of the school or schools they went to. It definitely influences their thinking and in a certain way helps formulate preconceptions of the ideal environment. There was a good mix of competition entries exploring very different ideas. There was an underlying theme of materiality in some proposals. The essence of architectural education lies in serendipity and heuristics, themes that one of the design proposals wittily translates into a fun learning environment. Another proposal touched upon the notion of time with a simple and elegant layering of floating planes and lines. Some of the projects would have had more clarity from a clear design narrative.”
