The country became a crucible for experimentation in modern and utopian architecture with new buildings, cities and museums giving public face to the nation. Indian architects and architectural projects claimed international attention, and a generation of women entered professions such as architecture and design that had previously been closed to them. They emerged as a pronounced political force, and important patrons of art, arc... View more info

For this the monumental treatise, the Samarangana Sutradhara of king Bhoj Deva has been the authors single guide. Though written by an aristocrat, this manual p... View more info
