The NMIMS’s Balwant Sheth School of Architecture (BSSA) focuses on various modes of architectural education, research and practice. It emphasizes on the ever changing ethos, behavioral sciences, tools and techniques, and assimilates all in contemporary design expression.
The students would be offered holistic exposure and understanding through Art, History, Technology, Architectural Design and Construction process. Balwant Sheth School of Architecture would award a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch), under the five years degree program of NMIMS which is recognized by the Council of Architecture.
Balwant Sheth School of Architecture (BSSA) is a young School. In a span of three months of its decision to initiate the School, SVKM’s NMIMS, established a solid academic and resource base with modern facilities and Infrastructure. The Council of Architecture has recognized the course offering a full time five year B.Arch. Degree.
Since it’s inception in year 2007, forty students and fourteen highly qualified and internationally exposed faculty members are engrossed in a journey to explore the “Process of Design”. Our syllabus imbibes Contemporary Design and Advanced Technology Studio Models. We are preparing our students to understand the changing ethos of architectural design and practice.
In formulating of this agenda one of the processes involved was a review of the conventionally existing modes of architectural education, research and practice. Balwant Sheth School of Architecture would learn from past, envision the future, redefine, enhance, integrate the present and constantly evolve.
“Holistic perception and its translation in three dimensions…” was the virtue of the Classical Architect. Architect perceived, analyzed and synthesized the third dimension. Classical Architect communicated the concepts to the team. In fact the Architect managed the design and designed the management process. In the present scenario, such creative leadership qualities need to be rekindled in education.
