Description From the utilitarian military buildings and commercial warehouses erected by the East India Company in the 17th Century to Edwin Lutyens’s elegant urban landscape at New Delhi in the 1930’s, this display explores the work of British architects on the Indian subcontinent during the Imperialist rule. The display also assesses the influence that Indian architecture exerted back in Britain at the time and the consequences for subsequent foreign designers in India, most notably Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn.
