Thirty-Five Years ago Nandigram was a dream. Today it is a reality. It is a place full of life where nature is a driver. It is a place where, metaphorically, trees are Gurus. It is tranquil. It
evokes sense of spiritual and social fulfillment; however, it is more than a social center and a spiritual place. It is a lifestyle, a lifestyle that represents a dream to be a microcosm of a larger sustainable world.
Environment Center for Art and Design (ECAD) is planned to promote experimental regional art and craft, research in building material envelop materials, and symbiotic relationship between art, architecture, and Nature.
