How we plan to bring change.

THE PROBLEM

Current state of the profession

With an average of 22,000 architects and 1,00,000 interior designers coming into the field every year, competition is cut-throat. It's a known fact that most students and professionals find it absolutely difficult to find jobs/clients.

It's also known by Principals, partners, and owners of various firms that good talent is hard to find.

Only reaching a minimum standard

Increasingly, design education in India only reaches the minimum standard set by the university for the grant of a degree/diploma.

As all practicing professionals know, this minimum standard is not sufficient to make students proficient enough to either land jobs or clients.

Tendency to chase the esoteric

Meanwhile, the apparent focus of traditional design education is to value complexity over simplicity. Words like narrative, storytelling, and hedonism are thrown around while even the basics remain unclear in the minds of the learner.

Similarly, many other professional competencies and skills are left for the student/professional to figure out themselves. A practice that has not fared well for the fraternity.

OUR SOLUTION

Putting professional practice first

On matters of teaching architecture and interior design, the approach taken by the establishment is that it's a form of art. Hence, there is only so much that could be explicitly "taught" to the students.

At Designopolis, we like to challenge that notion with our courses where we bring established research, professional wisdom, and mental frameworks to the fore-front to teach design better.

Simplicity over complexity

We try our very best to keep away from the esoteric. Our course material is such that it respects the immediate realities of the practice.

It's not that the ideal finds no place, although the practical is given its due importance.

Creating competent professionals

We're proud to say that we're not in the process of making star designers but competent professionals who know their craft well.

Our short courses are power packed with real actionable principles, precedents, and processes to give the learner a complete overview of the subject matter.

OUR METHODOLOGY

Principles

Identify the constraints first to know what you can't do. Observe what's been already done and distill everything into core principles and motivations.

All design decisions stem from these principles/tenets and our courses strive to make them explicit to every learner.

Processes

Our instructors bring their top tier frameworks and processes to shed light on every design aspect. From selecting materials for spaces to executing projects on time, we teach you real-world, applicable processes.

Precedents

See the principles and processes in practice with in-depth studies and analyses of past projects (learn from precedents).
