School of Architecture

About School

World School of Planning & Architecture (WSPA) started in August 2016, is dedicated to imparting architectural education that is rooted in the understanding of the CONTEXT.

We believe that quality of life cannot be solely equated with infrastructure but most importantly with culture and environment. From the outset it has been a central aim of WSPA to derive design solution/s that are contextual to the place we are designing in. Hence all design exercises begin with a thorough analysis of the context.

Vision

Our vision is to impart architectural education that is rooted deeply in the context of environment and culture through a well-devised curriculum to provide conscious architects to the society.
