India is a lively and diverse country, and it has like China, in recent years developed into one of the largest industrialised nations in the world. This process is also reflected in its architecture. Recent developments betray a new consciousness and the search for an Indian identity. International influences are merging with traditional styles to create a unique new architectural language, which also bears the stamp of Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, who worked there." "In its introduction, the book depicts the rise of modern architecture in India since independence in 1947. The main section describes the important tendencies of contemporary Indian architecture in thematic chapters, each with examples. In addition to the new younger generation of Indian architects, it also considers the first post-independence generation, including Raj Rewal and Charles Correa.
