This paper attempts to present the process of symbiosis between design education and cultural values – the impact of cultural principles on design and visa versa. Although, the primary design education in architecture and its constituent principles remain as universal phenomena; however, this emphasis on culture as the mediator to augment students design experience makes the challenge of teaching and learning informative and imperative. I also believe that teaching sustainable design remains as the principal impetus behind a good and nourishing design-learning environment; thus it enriches students’ professional development and encourage community engagement. Design educators must ask, can teaching of architecture help humanity design must have a deeper and wider understanding of cultural values and relevance to contextual imprint in order to serve human needs, especially in the context of current global crises. “Failure in socio-cultural thinking, environmental consciousness, design ethics have already led the architecture profession into a global crises”.
