Overview of design

The design programme provides an integrated approach and is multidisciplinary in nature. Over the past decades, the world has become more and more complex, with technological, material advances and changes in our lifestyle. The future requires all designers to be more responsible with their interventions.

Overview of Bachelor in Design

The course is a comprehensive programme that seeks to create professionals who take responsibility for designing the future and enhancing today’s physical, experiential, functional and emotional reality. Designed for courageous and foresighted individuals who seek new meanings for tomorrow and creative solutions for a better and sustainable life, the course offers the student a chance to intervene in any way possible without limiting her/him to any particular specialization of design.

The programme also takes the students through a sensitizing journey of making them aware of the context within which they operate as Non-Silo designers, and then equips them with the necessary tools to realize their vision.

The programme follows an integrated approach where students look at the domain in the larger context of India and the world. This helps to bring together the concepts and values of sustainability, environmental studies and living traditions. The curriculum helps in sensitizing students towards consumption and confronts them with the responsibility that has to be taken for this cause. The versatile curriculum of the programme allows it to be amongst the best design courses in Delhi and TDV to be one of the best design institute in Delhi and Noida.

How We Teach

The pedagogy at The Design Village is driven by intrinsic motivation, personal responsibility of the students and lifetime learning attitude, all of which is held together by support of facilitators. The journey of a student is based on the learning manifesto of each student and the itinerary chalked out to achieve it and hence the journey undertaken by every design villager at TDV is unique, and bespoke and it does not have to cease at the end of four years.

Although the journey is individual, the villager is not alone. There is a support system of relevant people, to assist the villagers at every junction.

Each villager charters their own personal learning path. This path is custom made for them with a great mix and match of experiences, projects and tools through three streams of interrelated activities:

  • Taskbox: It includes design problems of various scales and durations derived from real-life situations.
  • Basket: It is a cluster of courses characterized by a common theme, discipline or learning objective.
  • Villaging:It consists of the activities for personal development, with the goal to build the TDV community and oneself.

The pedagogy makes TDV a unique and the best institute for interior design in Noida and Delhi.

Curriculum Details Overview

The curriculum for Bachelor’s degree in Design is designed in such a way that over a course of four years, students will become aware of themselves and their values. They will understand what they consider important in the world and how to let this drive their design education. This gives students the freedom to choose what kind of non-silo designer they want to become as they evolve.

Briefs for taskbox are offered in a variety of contexts ranging from lifestyles, public services, accessories to a range of cross disciplinary as well as manifestation independent ones. In basket courses students will have the freedom to choose the courses as per their personal and academic goals. They will go through courses like Implications of Design, Visual Aesthetics, Conflicting concerns, Context Mapping, Design for values, Vision in design and many more. The villaging modules are intentionally the same for all the programmes to ensure development of the self and the village community.
