Architecture in India since 1990

Architecture in India since 1990 charts the complexity of India’s contemporary architectural scene over a crucial period marked by economic liberalization and the contradictions, glamour and displacement wrought by globalization. In twenty-first-century India, hybridity, pluralism and fusion reign over singular identities, the resultant architecture mirroring the socio-economic and political fabric of one of the world’s largest and most populous nation states.

This study presents four distinct genres of architectural expression and introduces the proponents of each with a bold, incisive text supported by exceptional examples of projects that showcase the disparity and coexistence of multiple approaches. Featuring the work of more than 60 contemporary architects, and lavishly illustrated with over 500 stunning photographs, this book will interest a vast readership of academics, architects and students, as well as exponents of multiple design disciplines and the general reader with an interest in contemporary India.
