Rahul Mehrotra's new tome on Indian architecture
Rahul Mehrotra, co-author of the definitive coffee-table book on Mumbai "Bombay: The Cities Within" and chair of the Department of Urban Planning and Design at Harvard University, will be launching his next book this Wednesday in Mumbai.
"Architecture in India since 1990" (Rs 2,700) is an illustrated study that delves into the transformations that have taken place in Indian cities since globalization.
One look at Mumbai's bizarre buildings and skylines and you'll see why someone really ought to have a crack at explaining how this dense diversity came to be. Mehrotra is your man.
At his launch event at the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA) on August 3, the professor will be talking about his new book with Mumbai expert and Time Out Mumbai consulting editor Naresh Fernandes.
August 3, 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m., Dance Theatre Godrej Theatre, NCPA, Nariman Point; +91 (0)22 2282 4567; Facebook group
