  • 3. Message from the Director MIDAS MIDAS in a short time has emerged as one of the key players in architectural education in South India. The efforts by the faculty and students have enabled us to critically think, reflect and research on contemporary issues in built environment. The idea of MIDAS as a platform for this lateral thought process and the freedom to design has made the institute a trendsetter in architecture education. Our design projects are unique, well researched and outstanding in terms of response to culture and environment. MIDAS has endeavored to bring experts and the extraordinary performers in the field of architecture to share their thoughts with the emerging minds. Students get a deeper understanding of architecture through a dedicated effort in art with a social context. This encourages and facilitates creative and artistic vision with a commitment towards technical excellence and conceptive brilliance. Our aim is to be one of top class architecture institutes by 2020, at par with international schools , and hence there are quality standards for the constant renewal of creative potential and the uncompromising liberty to innovate. On behalf of MIDAS I cordially invite you to visit the institute and sample the unique work being done by the team. Prof. Jaffer AA Khan, RIBA., RAIA., FRSA, Chartered Architect, Director, MIDAS
