Charles Correa (1930-) is an internationally recognised architect and urban designer (Royal Gold Medal for architecture 1984, Aga Khan Award 1998) who has played a pivotal role in the creation of an architecture for post-Independence India.
Drawing on a unique philosophy rooted in the rich traditions of people and climate, Correa’s work is informed both by a world view and intimate understanding of place. This exhibition showcases his signature projects from across the world and features images, drawings, photographs, models and films charting a career spanning over five decades.
Curated by Dr Irena Murray, RIBA Sir Bannister Fletcher Curator and designed by internationally renowned architect David Adjaye this exhibition is a chance to see highlights from the Correa archive whilst also celebrating one of our most distinguished contemporary global architects in practice today.
