Material Museum

A variety of materials are used in the construction of buildings and infrastructure development. A wide range of conventional building materials is readily available in the market. Also new building materials are being introduced to the market almost daily.

In order to update the students’ knowledge on building materials along with building services like water supply and sanitation, plumbing, electrical and mechanical fittings and fixtures, insulation, acoustics, etc, samples of this variety of material are displayed in the museum. These samples are facilitated with information in the form of charts and brochures mentioning their specifications like properties, availability, market forms, etc.


The application in construction and working details in the form of drawing panels are displayed in the material museum. The large and small scaled models of various building components are also displayed in the museum. This helps students to better understand topics that are taught in the classroom.

Students doing market surveys and procuring samples are also displayed. This enables them to see different materials in-house.


The BVP College of Architecture library has one of the widest collections of architecture and allied field reference Books. Since the library has made consistent progress in terms of collection of Books, Journals, thesis, dissertation, CD’s, etc. More than 6916 books, 20 national and International journals and 01 E-database have been subscribed by the college. Library is situated on the Ground floor of the college building.



We promote hands-on learning to students and our material museum, construction yard and interactive spaces which facilitate students for interacting and learning. Multiple workshops and activities happen at least once a week. These spaces have ample area for seating, working and gathering. There are spillover spaces next to these areas. The building premises and surroundings are a lively space for interactive learning for the students. The open-to-sky courtyard on the ground floor also houses active installations executed through the conducting of hands-on workshops at regular intervals; which add to the landscape of the space as well.
