KNOW THE PAST / CHALLENGE THE PRESENT / CREATE THE FUTURE DESIGN AND INNOVATİON ACADEMY, AHMADABAD-INDIA
The project is in the city of Ahmadabad, which lives the past and the future, east and west together. It was an important issue in this project that a design center to be in such a city should be innovative as well as contain essences of the culture of the region.
