It would also look at the historical precedents of built environment in India and across the world. The procedure will address the issues of the methods in documentation, interpretation and analysis of physical environment. Prescription would be learnt through problem solving activities of studio. Studio cycle, spread over three semesters, is aimed at imparting tools, skills and strategies to design large scale urban design projects in varied conditions. Constant didactical relation with the theory, history and contemporary processes would be the core strength of the course and will set it apart from similar courses elsewhere.
