From Dean’s Desk

Ar.Ajai-Chandran.C.K Welcome to BGS School of Architecture & Planning (BGSSAP). Human imagination and endeavour are constantly redesigning the world. Our vision is to provide world-class knowledge with leading practice, to equip you for an outstanding career. Currently we plan to offer the exciting Bachelor of Architecture undergraduate program. The B.Arch. is a rigorous and comprehensive program that aims at developing the required skill, environmentally and socially sensitive, technologically advanced and professionally competent Architects. Our relationship to the environment has never been more challenging than it is today. How will architecture react to these developments and these demands? Is the challenge we wish to address here. NEWNESS needs to be the emphasis of our approach, which makes possible architecture of freedom in demonstration. The relevance for opportunities of innovation, time to conceive strategies are the need of the hour. We live in an era of rapid transformation. More than ever before, technological developments have reshaped our perception of the world. Our universe is becoming small, with individual primate cities as neighbourhoods. The teaching learning process needs to emphasise on exploration, exposure to wide ranging disciplines, visual and language skills and critical thinking. The school environs inform the learners regarding the present and simultaneously challenges the future. Student interests may be pursued through the highly motivated exploration sequence. Every semester break during the vocation is generally dedicated to travel. Every year, students may select from a range of faculty-directed travel experiences, nationally or internationally. Our Institution includes fieldwork experiences with its courses. Our Institution is a dynamic ecosystem with deep ties to the profession it represents, professional bodies and the diverse people it serves. Hosting visiting scholars, supporting active student organizations (National Association of Students of Architecture, NASA) and sponsoring lecture series that bring to campus distinguished practitioners and academics, all contribute to the comprehensive life of the School. The School needs to position itself as a major research engine for sustainable architecture, and, we need to play an important role in building prosperity and the economic vitality of our region. Architects and Planners are the ones who are working to solve critical issues related to the built environment, and the students that we educate are the ones who are going to solve these challenges. We have a critical mass of excellent faculty, world-class facilities, and strong program envisages based on VTU syllabus. Our final priority is in developing future leaders and entrepreneurs who will address our critical national and international challenges. We are investing strategically and are aligning the institution structure for maximum operational efficiency as a new school of thought. Please feel free to contact us or come for a visit. I look forward to hearing from you.

BGS SAP is the destination for someone who wants to pursue, sharpen and develop your skills in sustainable design, or someone who would like to contribute to the creation of a sustainable built environment as a responsible and sensitive Global Citizen, the team at BGS SAP is dedicated to reach such goals.
The institutional focus on Sustainable Architecture is dedicated to the creation and maintenance of sustainable buildings and communities based on a  GO GREEN concept. Truly Sustainable Architecture could be defined as the creation of habitat for which only renewable resources are consumed throughout the process of design, construction and operation. In order to achieve this, the prescribed subjects for the B.Arch Degree (Intake of 80 from Aug 2015) is taught with an emphasis on traditional planning and design heritages from across India as well as current trends in sustainability and future practices, processes and materials, which give future architects and planners valuable skills to create a truly sustainable built environment. The subjects range from pre-design stages to designing, construction, post-construction, and maintenance, operation and evaluation of buildings. We intend to provide hands-on experience through workshops, seminars, site-visits, faculty-led architectural study tours to destinations within India and abroad to provide a total educational perspective.

BGS SAP with its dedicated faculty and noble management is destined to provide its students with an education that combines rigorous academic programs and the excitement of innovation with the support and intellectual inspiration of a diverse campus community. We seek to cultivate in each student member of the BGS SAP community the skill and passion to work sensibly, creatively, and commendably for the betterment of humankind.
