Enduring Images of India: Art, Architecture and Metaphor

11 June 2013

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Venue:

RIBA, 66 Portland Place London W1B 1AD

Description:

For centuries, architecture has been loaded with stories of science, philosophy and religion. Our buildings are full of symbols intended to communicate meaning and act as metaphors with some owing their entire form to bigger stories and greater purpose.

Indian architecture old and new draws on a rich set of experiences unique to its own beliefs and fascinations - encompassing cosmology, medicine, religion and the universe.

This discussion, chaired by Sunand Prasad, looks at the enduring images of India through Correa's work and revealing the hidden meanings of its buildings - old and new with:

  • Dr Irena Murray - Sir Bannister Fletcher Curator of Drawings
  • Stephen Cox - artist and collaborator of Charles Correa 
  • Malcom Reading - Malcom Reading Consultants & former Director of Design and Architecture at the British Council
