Course Description:

India has a long ongoing tradition of building that is reflected in its practices, knowledge systems and typologies. The vast resources from the past need to be contextualized in the present, demanding critical reflections on the question of what is heritage and its relevance in the present. Hence, there is a need for expertise in spatial concepts along with historical and present day political, social and cultural contexts, to engage with these questions that revolve around built heritage. The curriculum addresses the need of training such a professional, as it operates on a platform where students learn to understand, sustain and use built heritage through multi-perspective views and multi-discipline tools by means of project-based learning.

  • To build on critical thinking with respect to the what, why and how of built heritage; borrowing, testing and applying contemporary theory in cultural studies.This requires nurturing professionals who can identify the difference between the ‘ancient monument’ of the 19th-20th century and ‘built heritage’ which is the current terminology being used globally and in India over the recent decades.
  • To develop an approach that addresses ‘built heritage’ as a cultural process, in line with contemporary cultural theory rather than just a physical entity. This can be ensure by positioning Built Heritage as an inclusive methodology, placed and constructed in the present rather than being an expert driven process of ‘conserving’ architecture.
  • To draw on a large number of related disciplines such as history, sociology, anthropology, economics as well as architecture in dealing with built heritage by incorporating the content of the allied disciplines while maintaining the distinctiveness of the main.

Course Description:

 

The program will endeavour to establish the importance of the role of landscape architects as stewards of the land, that strive to achieve the highest quality in the built and natural landscapes. The programme holds strong connections to regional planning, urban design, heritage, environmental resilience and architecture, in order to produce professionals capable of responding to the challenges found at the intersection of design, culture, urbanization, and ecology.

 

Landscape encompasses all fields directly and indirectly related to the built and natural environments, making it an absolute essential lens to view either with. Landscape architecture as a discipline is devoted to understanding and managing the human and environmental forces that change the landscape. Landscape architects plan and design places for the health, safety and welfare of citizens through systematic decision-making that integrates science, art and technology. It ultimately helps create, protect and improve landscapes thereby enhancing individual and community quality of life, ours and the ecosystems’.

 

A powerhouse in architectural and urban design and planning education seems wholly incomplete without the introduction of this third arm in the trinity of professions dealing with the fabric of our cities and the environment. Introduction of Landscape helps our sustained efforts towards interdisciplinary learning, ultimately readying the students for the profession.

India’s urbanization is taking a dynamic turn as 40% of the urban population will be living in cities by 2040. Urbanization in the era of globalization, changing economies and technology has created the development of new cities and changed the shape of cities, which now range from industrial corridors to edge cities, from smart cities to cities which are being developed through provision of urban basic services in small and medium towns. Increased attention in current urban reforms is now being paid to decentralized planning, implementation of plans, better functioning of land markets, developing transportation-land use nexus, building capacity of urban local bodies, integrating environment with economic development, sustainability and heritage.

 

All these urban changes and challenges demand trained planners India has a shortage of 3000 planners per year, and has a handful of Masters in Planning programs, despite the fact that Government of India itself has given a mandate to all universities and colleges to create planning programs and is in the process of opening several new urban management and planning programs.
