The KVD Forum is an event hosted by students of Architecture at CEPT University in which student projects from various schools are presented and discussed. Since its establishment in 2001, the Forum has become a platform for critical discourse on architecture and architectural education. It is a platform for students to interact directly with a panel comprising of members of the architecture and design community.
For the past eight years a panel of eminent architects has been constituted to discuss, in an open forum, final year/thesis students’ projects. Previous panels have included distinguished professors and illustrious practitioners like B.V.Doshi, A.D.Raje, K.T.Ravindran, K.B.Jain, Christopher Benninger, Channa Daswatte, Lucien Kroll, Juhaani Pallasma, Mahendra Raj, Peter Rich and Jaimini Mehta.
