PLEA 2014 Conference will be hosted at CEPT University and the Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat

CEPT University Campus

Established in 1962, CEPT (Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology) University, in Ahmedabad, has evolved as one of the premier institutions for studies in architecture, interior design, landscape and planning in India. The campus is located in the heart of the Ahmedabad city, in the university area and has been designed and developed as envisioned by renowned architect B. V. Doshi. The campus strikes a balance between built and open spaces. The buildings designed as exposed brickwork and concrete integrate with the landscape, activity areas, art works and sports facilities creating an environment which is conducive to learning and all round development. Students spend majority of their time on campus. CEPT also has several research centres that undertake advocacy and advisory projects to further the goal of making habitats more livable.

Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat

Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat (KCG) was established by the Department of Education, Government of Gujarat to promote opportunities for knowledge sharing and innovations. KCG is located at close proximity (within 10 minute walking distance) to CEPT University, in a peaceful institutional area which is secluded from the hustle bustle of rapidly growing city. The campus provides an ideal environment for interaction, learning as well as recreation. Architecturally, the design beautifully integrates low-rise buildings, landscape developed around existing trees to create a perfect ambience for hosting PLEA 2014.
