Description

Celebrating Public Spaces of India is an attempt at understanding architecture as a defining feature in the identity of the ‘public space’ and its influence on evolving modes of urbanism in India. Through a carefully curated list of more than fifty vibrant landmarks across the length and breadth of India, this volume analyses and highlights the socio-cultural-functional strength of public spaces within the urban fabric of cities.
 
Featuring evocative photographs and drawings, this volume strives to understand the mechanics of these built and open structures, and their influences on urban cityscapes. With insightful original research, the book is an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to understand the nature of the Indian urban public space.

Archana Gupta, co-founder of The Foundation of the Indian Cities, is the Vice-President (Projects) for KPDK Buildtech Pvt. Ltd. An architect and teacher, she is experienced in service architecture and infrastructure development, and has to her credit several publications and research projects relating to studies of traditional and vernacular Indian settlements.

Anshuman Gupta, co-founder of The Foundation of the Indian Cities, works as Vice-President, Head of Projects (South Asia), at Deutsche Bank AG. An architect and an accomplished corporate real estate professional, he has travelled and worked across India. A strong proponent of the sustainable approach to design, he spares time to research and write about urbanization and cities.

Published in association with The Foundation of the Indian Cities.
