Landmark exhibition on Correa

‘Charles Correa – India’s Greatest Architect’, a landmark exhibition, is now on at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London, celebrates the decades-long career of an internationally recognised architect and urban designer.

 It showcases the octogenarian’s signature projects from across the world and charts a career spanning more than 50 years. Correa’s eye-catching buildings have helped define the architecture of post-independence India. From cultural and civic monuments to modest housing developments, his influence and style have spread far beyond the subcontinent.

The London exhibition, which continues until September 4, has been designed by fellow architect David Adjaye and is the first major UK show focusing on the multi-award-winning architect. Correa’s considerable body of work includes landmark projects, such as the Kanchanjunga apartments (1983) in Mumbai. The show features several of Correa’s sketches and drawings, architectural models, photographs and films.
