The architectural and urban planning solutions of Charles Correa, the brilliant Indian architect, effectively combine traditional spiritual and symbolic themes with the environmental and cultural demands of a modernized society. They have gained him a global following. His projects have been as wide-ranging as they are impressive: low-rise, low-cost, high-density housing, entire townships and extensions to major cities, but also many individual buildings, such as the Gandhi Museum. In addition to the architect's own presentation of his ideas, Kenneth Frampton provides an overall assessment of his achievement, and this model study of an increasingly influential figure is completed by a detailed chronology and bibliography.
