The variety and complexity of India’s contemporary architecture.In twenty-first-century India, hybridity, pluralism, and fusion reign over singular identities, the resultant architecture mirroring the socioeconomic and political fabric of one of the world’s largest and most populous nation states. Architect, educator, and author Rahul Mehrotra (*1959 in New Delhi) has been at the forefront of India’s contemporary architecture scene for the last two decades. The book is his personal account and presents four distinct genres of architectural expression, introducing the proponents of each with a bold, incisive text supported by exceptional examples of projects that showcase the disparity and coexistence of multiple approaches. Featuring the work of more than sixty contemporary architects and lavishly illustrated with over five hundred stunning photographs, it will interest a vast readership of academics, architects, and students as well as exponents of multiple design disciplines and the general reader with an interest in contemporary India.

3 Rahul Mehrotra & Felipe Vera
Kumbh Mela: Mapping the Ephemeral MEGACITY
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385285073; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The volume presents the comprehensive research findings and includes city maps, aerial images, analytical drawings and photographs of this spectacular Ephemeral Mega City for the Kumbh Mela. Kumbh Mela is the largest religious celebration on earth and the biggest public gathering in the world. The resulting settlement is a virtual mega city! The Kumbh Mela deploys its own roads, pontoon bridges as well as tents serving as residences and venues for spiritual meetings, and social infrastructure such as hospitals, sanitation outlets and vaccination clinics-all replicating the functions of an actual city. The pop-up settlement seamlessly serves up to seven million people who gather for 55 days and an additional flux of 10 to 20 million people who come for 24-hour cycles on the six main bathing dates. In 2013, a team from Harvard University, representing faculty from multiple disciplines, researched the large-scale event from its preparation to the actual celebration itself. This was the first systematic study on the Mela as a City: a planned entity and covers issues of social inclusion, diversity, and even democracy that emerge under the framework of a neutralizing grid of roads that is the organizing armature of the city. This subdivision of the city forms clusters of freedom and facilitates space for individual and group expression Printed Pages: 450 with numerous colour illustrations. 039138
