Keep 24th July free for ‘Modernism Unbound?’

Vikram Prakash Lecture

As we build India’s cities to take their rightful place in the global network of world cities, must we envisage them to be just like Singapore or LA, or will they require the invention of a new, indigenous paradigm to ensure success?

Architect and historian, Dr. Vikramaditya Prakash will discuss the issues confronting Chandigarh today as its administration tries to ‘upgrade’ it to make it a player in the global economy. Focusing on issues of conservation, sustainability, and the ethics of practice, Dr. Prakash will present the recent work of the University of Washington’s ‘Chandigarh Urban Lab’ project in terms of the larger question of the future of India’s cities.
