Evolving Architecture with an Indian Inspiration

Show Summary Details


Raj Rewal is a renowned architect whose architectural work is perceived to have extended the traditional Indian concept of ‘rasa’. In his interview, Rewal discusses the challenges posed by the modernist position to the architects and the globalization of architecture. He continuously reiterates the fact that the past can serve as an inspiration for present architectural work, but it can never serve as a solution.
