Drawing on a unique philosophy rooted in the rich traditions of people and climate, Correa’s work is informed both by a world view and intimate understanding of place. This exhibition showcases his signature projects from across the world and features images, drawings, photographs, models and films charting a career spanning over five decades.

  13. A celebration of Correa's work at RIBA was overdue. Hope we have a better appreciation of works by Indian Architects now that the economic focus of the world has shifted to BRIC countries

    I am a bit confused to be glad or sad, Charles Correa decided to donate all his works to RIBA because he thinks it cannot be preserved here in India.
