Charles Correa, India’s greatest contemporary architect, passed away on Tuesday following a brief illness. He was an influential architect credited for the creation of modern architecture in post-Independence India.

Charles Correa interviewed by Shumi Bose and Herbert Wright at Durrants Hotel.

In his memory, we’ve put together some of his best and most admirable work (our favourites!)

He was the one behind the construction of the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Museum at the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad
