"Exhibition on View: A Place in the Shade: Selected Projects by Charles Correa": The University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

  community member   < less

Charles Correa (1930-2015) is arguably the most influential architect to have worked in modern India. Born in India and educated in the U.S., Correa earned a B. Arch. at the University of Michigan in 1953 and went on to receive his M.Arch. at MIT.
Over a prolific career spanning six decades, Charles Correa's architecture, urban design, planning, and writings inspired generations, adapting the international language of modernism to the Indian context.. This exhibition, organized by Nondita Correa Mehrotra, the director of the Charles Correa Foundation, explores the breadth of his built work, through highlighting thirteen selected projects. Professor Craig Borum designed the exhibition. The exhibition accompanies the inaugural Charles Correa International Lecture, an annual lecture by an emerging architect engaged with global architecture and activism. The lecture will promote cultural understanding through design practice and discourse.
