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.


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.


The “Three step” approach:

  • • Documentation
  • • Analysis
  • • Application

    Architecture is an ever evolving process and so is Architectural education.

    With our ever-growing demand for buildings, whether it is for commercial, institutional or educational purpose, Architecture is playing a very important role in shaping and transforming society. With the boundaries of urbanism expanding, the role of an architect stands to be more and more important. We aim to inculcate a sense of responsibility in the students and nurture talent to design meaningful architecture.
