History

Architecture deals with planning, designing and constructing form, space and ambiance to reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and of light and shadow. Often, conflicting requirements must be resolved. Architecture also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimation and construction administration. Documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, defines the structure and/or behavior of a building or other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed.

The School of Architecture aims to evolve into an institution of architectural thought focusing on the human, socio-cultural, environmental, scientific and technological, aesthetic and philosophical values. The academic programme of the School follows the framework of curriculum developed by the Higher Education Commission and Pakistan Council of Architects & Planners Pakistan. The five-year Bachelor of Architecture curriculum balances the acquisition of knowledge with the development of skills.

The School will be located on the top floor of the the Engineering Tower (under Construction), located in New Campus, Defence Road, Lahore. The school will consists of the state of the art workshops, lecture rooms, Computer laboratory, Studios, Library and other allied facilities.
