Design progresses from a simple small scale project to a large and complex project in the Final year with a Graduation Project. The students learn to design a variety of projects from a simple house to complex buildings like hospitals and hotels. They learn to understand social cultural, psychological as well as physical and environmental forces that influence the creation of spaces and structures.
