Description

New Delhi has been home to extraordinary modern architecture from its inception: the monumental, brick lined St Martin’s Garrison Church, the elegant mansions of Sujan Singh Park, the understated, finely detailed IIC, the path breaking exhibition complex at Pragati Maidan, the astounding, sculptural Belgian Embassy.

The Modern Architecture of New Delhi lists the most important buildings in the city, buildings every Delhiite needs to know about. The first handbook of Delhi’s modern architecture, it includes a brief description of each building, the architect and his vision for the work, key features to look out for in each building, and a glossary to explain all architectural terms. Beautifully designed, with stunning photography, this is an essential book for all lovers of Delhi and of modern architecture.
