Seminar: Development, Dissent and Architecture in the building of Modern India

On October 27 from 06:30pm to 08:00pm at CGIS South, S250 Peter Scriver, Centre for Asian and Middle-Eastern Architecture (CAMEA), University of Adelaide, will discuss India’s postcolonial modernization and development, and the architecture and urbanism of Chandigarh, the Punjab State Capital.

The event will be moderated by Rahul Mehrotra, Professor of Urban Design and Planning, Harvard Graduate School of Design.
