“Architecture is the scientific art of making structure express ideas. Architecture is the triumph of human imagination over materials, methods, and men to put man into possession of his own earth. Architecture is man’s great sense of himself embodied in a world of his own making. It may rise as high in quality only as its source because great art is great life.”

—Frank Lloyd Wright, from the Architectural Forum

“It is about creating buildings and spaces that inspire us, that help us do our jobs, that bring us together, and that become, at their best, works of art that we can move through and live in. And in the end, that is why architecture can be considered the most democratic of art forms.”

—Barack Obama, Pritzker Ceremony Speech

Thank you Chintan Sir for creating a wonderful platform for emerging designers and artists who see themselves working in the fields of Architecture, Design and Arts. The exposure and the accessibility of art through this window is commendable and I hope you continue sharing and teaching art to the upcoming youth. I came to Vadodara to become an architect with my sister’s guidance. And with all the dedication of Chintan Sir, and his guidance to appear for CEPT entrance, I and my friend Ukti, we both cleared the test and secured a seat in the top merit for CEPT University Ahmedabad. Its like a dream come true for both of us. The best thing that happened in my life, and it is only because of Chintan Sir. it would not have been possible without him. He provided me the first stage in this field.

Heartfelt Gratitude and wish you immense success in your Art and Design Centre!

When I look back to the time spent in CDC, it was a perfect blend of work and fun ! I thank Chintan Sir for cultivating important life lessons alongside intense prepraration for NATA. I greatly value his efforts of showing us the practical aspects as well, by organizing trips and walk through sessions. Under his constant mentorship and lively teaching sessions, I learnt a lot!

How I wish to be a part of this coaching again 🙂

CDC is undoubtedly THE BEST for design studies. I say this not for the sake of it but with conviction and experience. Having tried 2 premier commercialised institutes prior to joining CDC, I can proudly accredit Chintan Sir solely for where I am today I consider Chintan Sir a mentor rather than a teacher 🙂
