VISION of GDGU SoAP
To create an innovative platform for the study of human habitat through multi-dimensional lenses addressing the four pillars of our pedagogy, namely - Urbanism, Technology, History & Environment.
We seek to engage students of architecture:
- to be responsive to the natural, technological, cultural, and social environments through the systematic development of an aesthetic attitude, a technical confidence, and critical thinking.
- by offering a diverse, interdisciplinary and rigorous curriculum led by an accomplished faculty in a clever mix of comprehensive studio and outdoor environment by engaging with citizens' groups, local community organizations, the private sector, and the profession toward the improvement of the built environment.
- by providing opportunities to challenge students to develop their abilities in problem solving, creative thinking, and informed decision-making as a focus of their professional education and thereby to nurture a student-centered environment for personal development and professional excellence.
- by preparing students for leadership roles by educating them in skills and knowledge required to improve the quality of the built environment on both a national and international level, through collaborations and dialogue, in the fields of Architecture, Construction Science, Community Development and Digital Media Arts.
