Architects and engineers working in India and the subcontinent from the dawn of the twentieth century till the crucial economic reforms of the 1990s led the search for an architecture of India and in this process, produced works that were exceptional in their intellectual content.
The independence movement and the promise of a new democracy saw many designers in India - the first generation of Indian modernists - seek a vocabulary for architecture and design that subscribed to the framework of international modernism and yet, was rooted in the physical and metaphysical realms of India: our own modernity!
These works and ideas challenged the most fundamental issues and concerns of building in India in a language that does not mimic the past and yet, confronts our rich and plural history.
MODERN HERITAGE seeks to reflect on the time between the years 1935 and 1995 to evaluate this legacy that continues to shape our contemporary lives.
