Our Philosophy

  • Our Work
  • Our Process
  • Our Skills

Work is fun at VDA. Students enjoy doing what they do and that is what makes the difference. Taking pride in ones workman ship enhances the confidence and enthusiasm to always go for that extra mile! We work in and out day, and sometimes nights which is also a real time situation in architect’s professional life.

The process of our work is a response to the inevitable phenomena of life. Understanding the sense of continuity and change intervening with the traditional values of art and architecture inculcates a holistic experiential process of leaning. Rational thinking and transformation of ideas through logical reasoning is the spine to design.

The skill set of of architect is like that of a barber! One uses many tools to refine their final product that reflects the students workmanship. The foundation of the school is set on the idea of leaning by doing. Motivated students set benchmarks for other students and this creates a heathy competitive environment.
