KMEA COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE
Architect builds environment that influence people's lifestyle and culture. An architecture school keeping this as central theme will prepare students to take this interactive role with community seriously and not work in isolation in their office.
At KMEA college of Architecture we are also addressing context of practice in Kerala and also at national and international arena. The energy displayed by young architects in Kerala is very contagious and need to be reinforced further by bringing in pedagogy with some customized workshops, seminars and exhibitions showcasing from time to time local talents in practice of architecture.
At KMEA college of Architecture we also encourage diversity and encourage faculty as well students to come from different parts of India and also abroad. This creates a unique plurality and ideas and perspectives coming from different people create refreshing atmosphere to study and be in KMEA campus.
Apart from core faculty of studying architecture we also give enough emphasis to bring latest software and industry standards in computer applications to students so that they are up to date in all aspects of practice. Students are encouraged to explore different ideas of building like sustainability, local construction practices or hi-tech building with state of art building management systems. Students are encouraged to explore everything and check what appeals to their personality and pursue those in their practice and masters program vigorously.
At KMEA college of Architecture we also encourage extra-curricular activities like Painting Canvas, Graffitii (2D and 3D), art installations, clay club, sports events like Revelation 2017 (an architecture inter-collegiate football tournament hosted annually by KMEA college of Architecture - Kmea CoA are current champions), film making, photography, dance and music. All events are sponsored by college management and prizes are distributed to winning entries.
I welcome you all at KMEA college of Architecture and experience a unique and refreshingly ideal atmosphere to study architecture in lush and green environment of Kerala, with city of Kochi being easily accessible for more urban facilities.
