The spirit of architecture completely transformed in the 20th century and Marg magazine, founded in 1946, was at the forefront of documenting that change. The leading lights of architecture in the world wrote significant short texts for Marg that set forth not just an agenda for architecture that would shape the new India, but the habitats of a new world order. This anthology comprises a selection of these essays, as relevant now as they were when they first appeared. The pieces are by influential figures like Le Corbusier, Otto Koenigsberger, Patrick Geddes, Eric Mendelsohn, Richard Neutra, Emily Polk, Durga Bajpai and Mulk Raj Anand himself, and are re-visited and reexamined for contemporary relevance. Printed Pages: 156 with 40 illustrations.
