Chitkara School of Planning & Architecture has an intensive focus on research and knowledge building – an activity taken up through the Chitkara Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture.
The primary objective of the Centre is to build up a database of the innumerable territories of the built environment of India and also provide resources for conduct of specialized studies related to the same. Activities taken up through the centre include conduct of continuing Education programs, public lectures, and conferences, with a special focus on studies and documentation of the lesser-known and built traditions of India.
Some of the significant studies completed by our faculty and students over the last few years include those of early twentieth century Sadar Area of Ambala Cantonment in Haryana, several historic buildings on the Mall Road and Baradari of Patiala in Punjab; temples, sarovars and river ghats of the sacred Braj Region in Uttar Pradesh and, a few residential and public buildings of Garli in Himachal Pradesh.
The Centre is fully equipped to undertake research publications, and is also mandated to bring out “Creative Space (CS)”, the bi-annual academic journal of Chitkara University.
