Book Description: A renaissance man of Indian modernism, Aditya Prakash (1923-1988) trained as an architect in London and also studied at the Glasgow School of Art. His buildings adhered to the strictest principles of modernism as adapted to the Indian climatic and living conditions. His work in all forms is characterised by rigorous authenticity and directness. He began his career as an architect in the Chandigarh Capital Project and later went to work for the Punjab Agricultural University before he became the principal of the Chandigarh College of Architecture. Besides practising architecture, Prakash was a prolific painter, sculptor, furniture designer, stage set-designer, poet and public speaker. As an academic, his first love was sustainable urbanism. He published two books and several papers on the subject. This book traces the width of Prakash's career and obsessions, and includes critical essays, interviews and a chronology of works, along with lavish illustrations of a portfolio of select works.
