Contemporary Architecture and City Form : the South Asian Paradigm

July 1, 1997

This title explores in detail the building transformations that have shaped the physical environment in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh since the 1950s. It highlights the problems that contemporary architects must address in South Asia: striving for authenticity, an understanding of history, and the resolution of the complexity of urban dynamics. Emphasis is placed on the nature of physical transformation and their socio-cultural determinants in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, with close reference to influential neighbours such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tibet and Uzbekistan.
