Description

This volume is a comprehensive monograph chronicling the personal and professional journey of the Indian architect and urban conservationist Brinda Somaya, from 1975 to the present. Belonging to the ‘Bridge Generation’, her work transcends stylistic vocabulary and draws its inspiration from Indian culture, the landscape of the subcontinent and principles of sustainable design and intervention.

The book explores a cross-section of Somaya’s diverse typology of projects, including housing, institutions, conservation, urban design, social design and industrial works that represent a unique ‘non-stylistic’ grammar that has a sense of ‘order and appropriateness’. Situating her work in a broader context, the essays in this volume offer multiple perspectives on Somaya’s accomplishments, while the dialogues outline the concerns central to her work.

With Essays by Jon LangPorus OlpadwalaMary Norman Woods and Ruturaj Parikh, and Dialogues with Arun ShourieKamu Iyer and Saryu Doshi.

Published in association with The HECAR Foundation, Mumbai.

 

Nandini Somaya Sampat, architect, interior designer and Director at SNK Consultants, is involved in all aspects of the design, coordination and execution of projects.

Ruturaj Parikh is a partner at Matter, an architecture and content firm based in Goa. Former Director of the Charles Correa Foundation, he works on architectural and curatorial projects.
