|Prof. Bernard Kohn on CEPT University|
1962, I came to India, with my wife Ruth, and Claudia, now almost 50, who
was then three months.
Together with the architect BV Doshi and Dr Vakil, an engineer, we started the school of architecture with 30 students.
I drew up the very first curriculum, based totally on FOLK/WORK/PLACE.....
Over the year, a city planning department was started, then art and sculpture, engineering, landscape, interior design.....
Finally, it has had the status of a university.
Three years back,
while in Ahmedabad, I suggested an interdisciplinary workshop, as in India
,as sometimes elsewhere, heads of schools, or department may slowly become
centered only on themselves....
Inspite of my INSISTENCE
That is my own (borrowed)
definition of Geddes' "militant university".
