Ideologies on which the institute has been
designed
There has to be a feeling of no restriction to the exchange
of ideas and thoughts through an informal environment.
A thrust has to be given on the provision of flexible
spaces which can be used in a multifunctional manner.
A strong interconnectivity amongst spaces is required,
making the school an open space with hardly any doors.
A proper working environment has been created which
facilitates faculty and students to teach, learn and
interact anywhere.
Local materials have been used , essentially to reduce the
installation and maintenance costs.
CEPT, Ahmedabad is good example of blend
of nature with the built-up. There is a strong
connectivity between the building blocks.
The buildings essentially merges with the
surrounding to provide a unique ambience.
