NATUROVATION DESIGN WITHIN THE NATURE (DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE)

"Using Nature as our basis for design, a building or design must grow, as Nature grows, from the inside out. Nature grows from the idea of a seed and reaches out to its surroundings. A building thus, is akin to an organism and mirrors the beauty and complexity of Nature."

After the success of I-UP 2014, I-UP 2015 conference was held over 2 days from 9th – 10th December, 2015. The Forum was attended by Mr. Sudhakar Shinde, Mr. Prashanth T, Mrs. Deepa Suresh, Mrs. Gayathri Viswanathan, and Ms. Shalini Bedi.
