The Managing Editor of the magazine, Sarath Shyam, said: “Today, architecture is considered as one of the most sophisticated profession with diverse career opportunities for students. With rapid urbanisation, there has been a greater demand for a smart infrastructure. Even the government is coming up with many projects including the Smart city project, Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana and many more. As such, the education of architecture should not be restricted to books or theories but should involve a lot of practice. So, understanding the necessity of finding the best architecture programs in the country, we have listed ‘Top 10 Promising Architecture Colleges in India’. We sincerely hope that our efforts will help all the aspirants who are looking for something challenging and new to add to their profiles.”

This high-status ranking is with us because the unique work of LPU is in line with the top institutions of the world. I advise all students of architecture to work creatively to make this planet greener and healthier by focusing on several required areas.”

Students of LSAD are actively participating in renowned competitions and leaving their competitors behind in several challenges.
