Shivdatt Sharma (b.1931) is one of the most prolific of the Indian modernist architects. His architecture is a distinct blend of the core principles of modernism interpreted through the lens of contemporary Indian realities. Having started off as an architect in the Chandigarh Capital Project Team led by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, Sharma subsequently went on to work on his own with the Indian Space Research Organization. He then went into private practice.
This well-illustrated book documents Sharma’s work from the early days, when it was a part of the experimental and innovative ethos of Chandigarh, to the present. He has designed for a range of public and private clients across the world. Along with a portfolio of selected works, this book includes critical essays, interviews and a chronology of projects.
