Welcome to IIMA Archives
"We are pleased to announce the launch of 'Brick by Brick', the newsletter of the IIMA Archives. The Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) was founded in 1961, and has emerged as a world-class management education institute. The IIMA Archives was established in November 2017 to preserve institutional and architectural memory, and periodically disseminate historical information about the institute to the IIMA community and the general public."
OUR FOUNDERS AND BUILDERS: The Pioneers
"Ever since it was set up in the early 1960s--a period of great anxiety about nation building, it has responded positively to the demands made on it by a changing environment."
CONTINUITY AND CHANGE: History of Sports at IIMA
"In fact, there was a time when some members of our staff were recruited because of their footballing prowess!"
STORIES THE ARCHITECTURE TELLS US: Louis Kahn and the IIMA Campus
"The plan comes from my feelings of the monastery. The idea of the seminar classroom and its meaning of 'To Learn' extended to the dormitories comes from the Harvard Business School."
STUDENTS' CORNER: Virasat - The Heritage Club of IIMA
"But perhaps the best stories are those that one tells oneself while visiting these sites and reimagining them, and while interacting with people and participating in their cultural activities."
SEPIA ECHOES: '310, Camp Road', IIMA's First Home
"310, Camp Road was the host for a number of significant meetings and discussions. A number of administrative decisions, early faculty member recruitment, the initial formalities of partnering with the Harvard Business School and the Ford Foundation, and the launch of the first PGP in Business Administration in 1964, were some of the highlights of this period."
HERITAGE NETWORKS: The Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Museum, Ahmedabad
"The painted cloths and miniatures from Muni Punyavijayji's Jain collection includes some rare painted wooden book covers (patli) created for palm-leaf manuscripts."
