Bearys Enviro-Architecture Design School (BEADS) is the high point of over 100 years of my family’s interest, involvement and passion for excellence in education . From its very inception, The Bearys Group has believed that Triple E: entrepreneurship, education, the environment, and by extension, architecture are contiguous. My vision is that, “Nature must inspire our architecture, and education must inspire our young minds to become entrepreneurs of sustainable architecture”. We are what our buildings say about us. Like Winston Churchill has succinctly said, “We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.” How we design, the materials we use, the spaces we occupy, their impact on our lives and well-being, the energy we consume, all define our present and predicate our future.
Through BEADS, we endeavor to make quality education in architecture more inclusive, accessible and affordable. We have intentionally located BEADS in Mangalore, an established educational hub and an emerging South Indian metropolis that is experiencing a surge in building and construction activity. Our budding architects will have ample opportunities to put their academic knowledge into practice through workshops, internships, industry-academic partnerships.
While I believe we need to offer our students everything from engineering and structural design, to building and project management, to graphics and design, and also inculcate business acumen, we must strongly emphasize sustainable architecture as the long term vision and goal of this institution. Bearys Group is a leader in sustainable development , as is evident from the numerous awards bestowed on buildings put up by the group in India and I look forward to nurturing architects who will share our vision and leave their mark on our architectural landscape.
With this in mind, I invite you to enroll in our School, a place where you will meet – and interact with – practitioners and peers who will become your trusted friends and community. Here, we help you to find your passion and achieve more than you ever thought possible. If excellence is what you seek and wish to practice, I look forward to welcoming you at BEADS.
