Architecture is the art and science of building design that develop the concepts for structures and turn those concepts into reality. Architecture often includes imagination; the ability to order ideas and communicate them clearly; a keen interest in human behaviour, our habitat and the natural environment; and problem-solving skills. In developing designs, architects follow building codes, zoning laws, fire regulations, and other ordinances, such as those that fulfil the universal design criteria. Computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) and building information modelling (BIM) technology has replaced traditional paper and pencil as the most common method for creating design and construction drawings. Architects are licensed professionals and authorized to work with prescribed instructions of the regulatory council.

Le Corbusier developed the master plan of Chandigarh in 1951, and his work has influenced the generation of architects and their architectural education and discourse. It is, therefore, no coincidence that Corbusier’s school of Modernism has only been fully understood or accepted at Chandigarh. The Architectural Legacy of Chandigarh and its location provides opportunities for multiple study trips throughout the city and outside. UIA with its unique inherent potential and location aims to train architectural students in the contemporary architecture and design institution.
