In the late 20th century, many of the world's greatest architectural challenges lie not in the West but in what India's best-known architect, Charles Correa, is happy to call the Third World. The architectural and urban planning solutions proposed by this brilliant Western-educated architect, who so effectively combines traditional spiritual and symbolic themes with the environmental and cultural demands of a modernizing society, have gained him a global following. His projects, fully documented in this comprehensive and superbly illustrated volume, have been as wide ranging as they are impressive: low-rise, low-cost, high-density housing, entire townships and extensions to major cities, but also many individual schemes and buildings, from the Gandhi Museum (1958-63) - 'one of the most compelling national monuments erected anywhere in this century', according to Kenneth Frampton - to the National Crafts Museum in New Delhi (1975-90). In addition to the architect's own presentation of his ideas, Kenneth Frampton provides an overall assessment of his achievement, and this model study of an increasingly influential figure is completed by a detailed chronology and bibliography.
