History, Theory and Criticism 2021-02-09T11:38:29+06:00

History, Theory and Criticism division focuses on the history of Architectural built forms and discourses in relation to the wider field of epistemology with emphasis on critical historiography and relevant analytic methodologies. It offers students scopes to examine the diachronic and synchronic relationships between architecture and its social, political, economic, cultural, and technological contexts. As an inherently interdisciplinary stream, it encourages students to explore theoretical approaches outside the discipline of Architecture to explore both concrete and abstract resources from history in order to establish its link with the contemporary issues. It also offers a platform for a holistic inquiry into the disciplinary debates and emerging local and global issues from an analytic point of view to understand the shifts of the architectural discourse itself.
