Welcome Message from Ashok Iyer, Chairperson & Professor, School of Design & Architecture
In 2014, the School of Design & Architecture, Manipal University – Dubai Campus completes a decade. From our humble beginning in a classroom cum studio on the first floor at Dubai Knowledge Village with our bread & butter program the Bachelors in Interior Design, we have grown and currently offeran array of programs in Interior Design, including the Bachelor of Architecture Program as part of our academic portfolio.
So, my dear students, 2014 is a year of reflection; a year where we will re-contextualize our approach towards the built environment by looking at the Emirate of Dubai and the larger context of the United Arab Emirates. The School academically reflects the euphoria that has descended on the landscape of Dubai with the pronouncement of the Emirate as the Host for Expo 2020.
So, get set for some back-breaking and heart-crunching creative work which will take you through the breathtaking journey; we call Dubai – The City of Gold.
