National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad
On April 7, 1958, the Eameses presented the India report to the government of India. The Eames Report defined the underlying spirit that would lead to the founding of NID and beginning of design education in India. The report recommended a problem-solving design consciousness that linked learning with actual experience and suggested that the designer could be a bridge between tradition and modernity. The report called upon future designers to re-examine the alternatives of growth available to the country at that time.
Based on the recommendations made in the India report, the government of India with the assistance of the Ford Foundation and the Sarabhai family established the National Institute of Industrial Design, as it was originally called, as an autonomous all-India body in September 1961 at Ahmedabad. Gautam Sarabhai and his sister Gira played a major role in the establishment and early years of NID. Gautam Sarabhai sidestepped the accepted wisdom and conventional method of education . He revived the philosophy of the Bauhaus design movement which was learning by doing. This unique curriculum and revolutionary educational philosophy remain part of NID to the present day.
