Two of the anticipated four laboratories tasks; i.e., roles C,c and C,e are occupied already in relationship with institutions of a known performance record, and individuals[ at CEPT University. with proved research and academic abilities. Two near-identical projects concerning with Knowledge Structures in Architectural Studies and Production, are proposed at (C,e) level, this is done so as to maximize technology re-use, and so as to reduce the semantic distance between C,c and C,e Laboratories. Either of the proposed organisation can substitute the other.
P-1: (Structures) and the History in Indian Architecture; with emphasis on history of ideas and the history of mentalities, sub-projects such as…

The project defined above revolves around a doubling, or a strategic redundancy, where the processes C,e and C,c; while mutually exclusive and unique, can in practice substitute for one-another. The two processes, also, work towards the same objective: the characterization of knowledge as it is formed in a multitude of architectural practices.
A corresponding outwards (publishing / dissemination) aspect of the processes is visualized through Architexturez Network, which is an inter-network existent amongst the various Indian institutions working with architecture and physical space.
The matrix of projects thus constructed is expressed in the following diagramme, which has three types of roles, i.e., Abstract roles, Concrete roles and Masters courses…
