The RIBA’s landmark exhibition, Charles Correa: India’s Greatest Architect, opened in May, celebrating the work of former Cities Programme lecturer Charles Correa. The exhibition is accompanied by a season of talks and events, ‘Out of India’, exploring stories and influences from modern urban India. For full details on the exhibition and talks, visit the RIBA website.
As part of the programme of accompanying events, Richard Sennett joined Charles Correa in conversation with Joseph Rykwer to discuss the continuing relevance and value of symbols as an element of contemporary design. Saskia Sassen and Tony Travers joined a panel discussion on the 28 May about the Indian metropolis in the twenty first century.
