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 architect have gained him a global following. His projects, fully documented in this 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 (1962-65) to the National Crafts Museum in New Delhi (1975-90). This model study of an increasingly influential figure is completed by a detailed chronology and bibliography.
