Mission & Values

Mission

NURTURING CREATIVE GLOBAL DESIGNERS AND CRITICAL THINKERS FOR THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT TO SHAPE ASIA'S FUTURE AND THE WORLD.

 

We produce creative, critical and contextual content
Our students’ design experiences are augmented by hands-on opportunities under communal settings, to promote social and service enterprises. These experiences are supported by access to a wide range of digital prototyping, fabrication and representation technologies.

We participate in social engagement
The underlying premise of our education is humanistic, communal and embedded in user-centric concerns; and in the best of examples, our teaching approaches combine abstract theory with concrete practices. Technique is merely a mean to a social end.

We value our students
NUS Architecture is as good as the dedicated and driven students who enrol in it. We believe that our future designers and thinkers seek inclusiveness, liveability & right livelihood, ethical sustainability, environmental & social responsiveness, conviviality and cultural robustness in our built environments.

We have highly experienced and distinguished faculty
Our faculty members have balanced experiences in design and research under diverse settings. They combine their strengths in theory, practice and international exposure to deliver a holistic educational experience.
