The stately India Habitat Centre (IHC), New Delhi will be the venue of the conference.
IHC is an evolved urban space, which is an assemblage of work-spaces, conference venues and eating places. It was conceived to provide a physical environment, which would serve as a catalyst for a synergetic relationship between individuals and institutions working in diverse habitat related areas and would therefore maximize their total effectiveness. To facilitate this interaction, the Centre provides a superb range of facilities. Habitat World provides a set of fine convention centres that is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities in the conference halls, auditorium, guest rooms and documentation centre.
Spread over an area of nine acres the IHC campus has been designed and built by Joseph Stein, Doshi and Bhalla who have created an island of architectural excellence in the busy metropolis of India’s capital, Delhi. The campus weaves in a unique interplay of institutions, supporting infrastructure and facilities such as conference venues, auditoria, hospitality areas, the library and resource centre, and art galleries. Elegantly designed, the campus is a hub of activity while simultaneously being serene. The architectural and design elements that Stein has built in enable this paradoxical blend. The landscaping, horticulture and fountains add to the pleasing ambience of the campus. The campus is wi-fi enabled.
