Message from Sri Sri Sri Nirmalanandanatha Mahaswamiji

I take the greatest pleasure in announcing the first ever School of Architecture under the auspices of the Sri Adichunchanagiri Shikshana Trust, with the blessings of Sri Sri Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji, the former president of the trust, under whose reign about 476 institutions are set up in India and abroad. Architecture of a city contributes immensely to the image of the city, therefore Architects have a larger responsibility beyond the sites on which they design and build as the ambassadors or the city in which they live and operate from.

In this background the SJB School of Architecture & Planning, whose stated mission is ‘Think Global and Serve Local’ has an important role in instilling the sense of responsibility without curtailing the creative thinking among the students who come to us for the much needed quality professional education in Architecture.

I assure all prospective students of Architecture who choose SJB SAP of cutting edge, world class education with deep rooted sense of responsibility towards the city and the society they live in.

Sri Sri Sri Nirmalanandanatha Mahaswamiji
President, SJBSAP
