SADA aims to produce the finest architects and designers. Being a new school, we have the opportunity of starting out with a fresh approach towards design education. To achieve this goal, we plan to provide students with a sound and extensive base of knowledge from their first semester by introducing the Basics of Design. We believe in learning by doing. We are one of the very few Pakistani schools with a studio culture for the first-year foundation course.
Our studios aim at creating an expressive and participatory environment through slide talks, seminars, guest lectures, practical assignments, film screenings and workshops. A diverse mixture of first year assignments attunes students to work with a variety of materials and skills whereas the studio projects help students discover their individual voice and personal expression through freedom and creative learning.
