Literature, according to Panayotis Tournikiotis, has always exerted a powerful influence on architecture.

Cochin—a historic port city on the Malabar Coast in Kerala—has for centuries remained a centre of maritime trade along the Indian Ocean.

Against this backdrop, some of the very first Indian mosques were built, located in compounds replete with coconut palms. These tropical mosques reveal a distinctive legacy in form, acknowledging and celebrating the place, history, and building techniques of the region.Mosques of Cochi... View more info

As well as an architect, Le Corbusier was also a painter, sculptor, urbanist and author; even a philosopher who ruminated ... View more info
