After the success of Learning from Mumbai (Mapin 2013) the authors of the ‘Learning from India Series’ continue their journey to unravel the lessons that can be learned from practising architecture and urban planning in the bustling capital city of India—New Delhi.With several essays and maps, Learning from Delhi lays the ground for a series of interviews with architects and planners who work in the city. Fresh talent finds a place in this volume alongside established institutions, and locating these explorations within a local framework are perspectives from scholars such as Pradip Krishen and Mohammed Shaheer. These Indian narratives on Delhi and its developmental life are balanced by the take of foreigners such as Joeri Aulman. A special place is reserved in this volume for the photo essays of Bas Losekoot. Learning from Delhi will be of significance to both students and practitioners of architecture and planning, as well as people interested in Delhi and its built environment.Supported by the creative industries fund NL. Printed Pages: 228 with 65 colour photographs & 17 maps.
