The M.Arch in Urban Design Programme was started in 2014 at Sushant School of Art and Architecture (SSAA) as an extension of the existing B.Arch. Programme.
The First semester studio engages the students with the local city, exploring the full range of contemporary neighbourhood conditions (inner city, periphery, and outer periphery).
The Second semester studio will engage a critical analysis of green field urbanism. The third semester studio will move into the city context to another world contexts.
The sequencing of the studios is intended to build the linguistic substructure that is essential to Urban Design thought and practice.
The sequence of seminars reinforces this construct, all three semesters together reinforce the Program’s commitment to help individual designers develop an understanding of our cities and vigorous Urban Design tools and methods of interventions; to acquire a working language for communicating Urban Design ideas; and to enhance the critical skills needed to test and refine Urban Design strategies.
The course will also engage realm of knowledge associated with disciplines such as urban ecology, urban geography, urban conservation, urban infrastructure and finance, transport design and landscape design.
