    This was the first time I attended the Leewardist school for Housing course. But during all the sessions I never felt that I was new in this family. Their style of teaching really helps us understand things in a better way. During this course I learned all the aspects of housing in detail. They also showed us different housing case studies and taught us the process in which the case studies are done. Overall the course is really helpful for architecture students. Thank you so much Leewardist school for this course. Now I feel that I can work confidently on my housing project for my thesis !!!
