OUR HISTORY

University of Lahore

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.
