Charles Correa

Charles Correa

Charles Correa has emerged as a major figure in contemporary worldwide architecture. With his extraordinary and inspiring designs, he has played a crucial role in the creation of architecture for post-Independence India. Charles Correa was born in Hyderabad, India in 1930. He studied architecture at the University of Michigan at MIT. He has started private practice in Bombay since 1958.

Correa's work in India shows a careful development, understanding and adaptation of Modernism to a non-western culture. Correa's early works attempt to explore a local vernacular within a modern environment. Correa's land-use planning and community projects continually try to go beyond typical solutions to third world problems. His work covers a wide range, from the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial at the Sabarmati Ashram, to the Jawahar Kala Kendra in Jaipur, and the State Assembly for Madhya Pradesh as well as townships and public housing project in Delhi, Bombay, Ahmadabad, Bangalore and other cities in India.
