Program Description

The India Winterim study aroad program 2014 shall provide students with first-hand exposure to the process of globalization and its dramatic impact on the making (and un-making) of the physical and cultural environments, in particular the city.

India, with its rapidly expanding cities, embodies conflict, contestation, adjustment and reconciliation between the past and present, its architects continually seeking to render these battles in the forms of buildings, spaces and places. Several proclaim success, while others accept the pleasures of profit as achievement enough. A select few are pained by the difference they could have made to a culture and place where the elephant and skyscraper seamlessly co-exist or collide. It is this recognition of a multi-layered cultural phenomenon, with its complex nuances affecting architecture and cities, which is seen as most instructive for students beginning to identify a design language of their own.

Participating students shall be encouraged to examine the cities and places visited in the course of the Winterim, in particular the urban fabrics of the cities of Ahmedabad and Chandigarh, where time and instruction would facilitate greater opportunity for observation. It is expected that through their urban 'mappings' and subsequent discussions all students shall react to a complex palimpsest of structures, several ancient and medieval – now the stuff of memory, others modern and radical – evoking Corbusier, Kahn and other lesser architects. Travel shall be an important component of our program, enabling students to visit significant cities and related places in India. Within each city, our trips shall include stops at places of general cultural and artistic interest such as major monuments and museums, as well as visits closely related to our studies of architecture, urbanism and culture.

The program director may request a short meeting with students whose major fields fall outside of the range of those proposed.
