"An architect is a visionary who dreams and sees them fructify. He/She is able to blend art and science in the right proportions to create architecture that betters life and heightens standards, keeping in mind the ecological and environmental balances. We, at Gopalan School of Architecture and Planning, focus our energies on bridging the gap between classic design and modern technology through our teaching and learning processes. We aspire to learn and inculcate ideologies from masters in the field like Laurie Bakers, Mario Correa, B.V Doshi, Frank Lloyd Wright and more. Our school provides the scope for students to work with different elements, material, and local traditions to craft designs that can be individualistic yet harmonious with its surroundings, thereby adding value aesthetically and functionally. We urge our learners towards excellence, to become competitive professionals at local, national and global levels."
