“WE IN “Acharya NRV School of Architecture” BELIEVE THAT The essence of Architectural Education is to train the students to design the Built-environment to be in harmony with the natural environment. To be responsible citizens and strive towards the preservation of Bio-diversity and heritage. To be eco-conscious and strive towards maintaining the eco – balance and conservation of energy in all our design endeavours. To strive towards the goal of sustainable and inclusive development through use of Cost effective & eco-friendly building technology. To strive towards the all round growth of the students in terms of their social awareness, design capability and sensitivity to nature and the eco-system.”


“Our mission is to provide an educational environment where students can reach their full potential and become responsible citizens, to provide a scholarly environment where the talents of both, the faculty members and students are nurtured for the benefit of the society. to enable students to free themselves from the stereotyped ways of looking at things and instead constantly question and challenge themselves, society and the world at large. We believe in the paradigm of "Learning by Doing" . Students are encouraged to learn various aspects of Architecture by interacting with professionals in the field and engaging themselves in putting up pilot projects with the help of the various trades associated with the building industry. In keeping with our Motto of "Think Globally: act locally" , we intend to have a healthy interaction with Architecture Schools in the West.”
