Tata Consultancy Services has announced that its not-for-profit arm, TCS FOUNDATION has signed an agreement with Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) to restore and reimagine the Vikram Sarabhai Library located at IIMA’s iconic Louis Kahn Plaza into a future-ready knowledge hub for Digital learning and collaboration.
TCS FOUNDATION, engaged in promoting and funding projects and programs under corporate social responsibility, will support this landmark project with funding of Rs 20 crore. The restoration and upgradation of iconic Vikram Sarabhai Library is expected to be completed by 2018.
Vikram Sarabhai Library at IIMA’s Louis Kahn Plaza is a landmark structure that leaves visitors awestruck. Its design and grandeur is almost impossible to miss. The iconic Louis Kahn buildings have witnessed years of academic lives on campus and even withstood the Gujarat earthquake, but has aged so as to need restoration and upgrade on priority. IIMA has initiated a program for the important and painstaking process of restoration and upgrade of these structures.
