In June 2024, CEPT University will lead a certificate program in London on Global Practices in Architectural Education for those interested in architecture, planning, and design education. The program will focus on visits to the annual summer exhibitions showcasing student works in central London's many architecture and design schools. The tour will provide the opportunity to critically review student work and engage with fellow academics to review London's varied teaching and learning programs. This will enable the participants to see some of the best practices and view them in the Indian context. As a part of this programme, a half-day discussion with a few tutors from London colleges will be held to learn more about design education and share participants’ views. The program will also include a guided walking tour of The Olympic Park to learn how the 2012 Olympic Games started a decade-long process of regeneration and transformation of the previously rundown area of East London. The walk will include visiting London’s ‘East Bank’, a new cultural and learning district in the city.

Program Structure

This Six-day On-site Advance Exposure Program in London will focus on the following:

  • On these days, the focus will be on visiting student works from the many schools of architecture and design in London. Students and academics from the schools will also be invited to engage with each other to compare alternative forms of academic structure, teaching methodologies, and the types of studio and academic courses offered by each institution.

  • On the morning of day three, the tour focus shifts to exploring continuity and change in the City where Roman London was founded in AD43. The City has prospered as a center of business and trade for two thousand years despite periods of abandonment and many episodes of catastrophic destruction. The themes to be explored will include the presence of the past, the future of the city, and planning and governance. In the afternoon, the focus returns to reviewing student work further.

  • A group discussion during the afternoon of day six will provide the opportunity to discuss findings and ideas discovered during the tour and to share ideas about how these findings and ideas might be translated for application in the Indian context.

  • The eastern side of London was traditionally the poorer side—an urban landscape of docks, industry, worker’s housing, and communities. The East End has been transformed over many decades as London transformed into a largely post-industrial economy. The new financial district of Canary Wharf and the Olympic Games-led regeneration of the Lea Valley are the most striking responses to this process of urban change. We will be critically assessing these urban transformations during a series of guided walks and visits. The walking tour will conclude with a group dinner in the evening.
