World Premiere

When Raj Rewal returned to India in 1962, after studying architecture and having various artistic and professional experiences in London and Paris, he wished to create a different architecture for this new nation facing major challenges. He drew lessons from the masterpieces of Indian architecture, pragmatically overcame the opposition between tradition and modernity, and created an original and human architecture respectful of nature. A fascinating portrait of a man who, over the decades, has participated through his iconic projects – individual house, collective housing, exhibition halls, offices, library of the Indian Parliament – in building modern India.
