Why Ooty
Writers Poets and other creative minds like Architects who pursue a creative profession are known to choose eclectic locations around the world to practice their work. A quiet and serene environment helps in stimulating their creative energy. According to Behavior scientists and top professors at Architecture Universities such as Academy of Neuroscience in San-Diego, the design of spaces can help promote creativity; keep one focused and alert. This forms the reason for selecting OOTY as our location to build an Architectural Institution.

Ooty, the capital of the Nilgiris district in TamilNadu, South India on the Western Ghats, has all the infrastructure a District Head Quarters should have. It is strategically located at an altitude of 8500 ft. With controlled climate throughout the year, Ooty is easily accessible by two other states, Kerala and Karnataka through the Ghat roads. One can get to Ooty via two roads from Mettupalayam, situated at the foothills of Ooty; one via Kotagiri and another via Coonoor -40kms each. Another means is by ‘The Heritage Mountain Rail’ which celebrated 150 yrs recently; the service is until Connoor after which one can reach the college at Perar by taking a 15km scenic drive by road.
