DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

"The present world faces an architectural crisis - a lack of experiences, expressions and senses in the built form. With changing times, the needs and desiresof the end user have changed, and today, mere functionality, a tired set of aesthetic values and, primarily, commercial viability, are at the vanguard of any unfortunate undertaking. We, as a school, aim to bridge this gap between monetary viability and the senses, having undertaken a curriculum of exploration and one that encourages experimentation and curiosities. We have instigated a complex yet achievable charge - to train individuals into critical thinkers and radical designers, with a clear perspective towards enhanced societal goals by way of a rational and creative outlook."
