Charles Correa: The Gestures of Human Occupation


For details of opening times please visit

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.

Rooted in the subcontinent, but educated as an architect in the United States and steeped in the modernist teachings of Le Corbusier, tradition and modernity are not opposites for him. Always contemporary, he has subtly layered the history of the land and of ideas in his designs.

In this lecture, his first in the UK since 2008, Correa charts a distinguished career in architecture, looking at the projects, passions and influences that have shaped it.
