Architecture in India Since 1990 by Rahul Mehrotra, Chair of the Department of Urban Planning and Design, is an illustrated study of the architecture of post-1990 India, a period that marks the liberalization of the country’s economy and reflects the contradictions, glamour and displacement wrought by globalization and rapid economic mobility. Showcasing a complex canvas of disparate visuals in which bizarre forms coexist in the Indian landscape, it brings to life, with over 500 vivid illustrations, a transformation in the construction of identities, which range from the pan-national to those more fluid in their expression. Hybridity and pluralism reign over singular identities, their architecture being the mirror of the socio-economic as well as the political fabric of a nation-state.
