This chapter takes a look at the way that colonial architecture structures the way that spatial relations are considered. The discussion focuses on the domestic architecture of the bungalow and the impact this had on the social relations between Indians and the Anglo-Indians. This chapter also analyses the specificity of colonial public and domestic architecture, while focusing on the way that these forms of architecture evolved out of a complex relationship with both indigenous and metropolitan styles of architecture.
