Discussion with Rahul Mehrotra, MAUD '87, Chair of the Department of Urban Planning and Design, and Hitesh Hathi, AM '97, GSA '88, producer for Here & Now.

In conjunction with Prof. Mehrotra's upcoming book release.

ARCHITECTURE IN INDIA SINCE 1990 charts the complexity of India’s contemporary architectural scene over a crucial period marked by economic liberalisation and the contradictions, glamour and displacement wrought by globalisation. 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.

Organized in collaboration with the South Asia Initiative at Harvard University and TEDx.
