India has a long, diverse history of remarkable architecture. This stunning overview of contemporary residential architecture in India features over twenty houses from across the country, designed by leading firms such as Samira Rathod Design Associates and Architecture Brio, as well as emerging architects such as Martand Khosla.
Beginning with a helpful essay, Contemporary House India is divided into four thematic chapters, each opening with a contextual introduction. Included with each featured home are detailed drawings and plans, specially commissioned photographs of the interiors and exteriors by leading architectural photographer Edmund Sumner, and accompanying text based on interviews with the architects by author Rob Gregory. Gregory places the selected homes in a global context, including the fascinating legacy of major modern architects such as Le Corbusier’s work in Chandigarh, India.
Rob Gregory spent over a decade at the Architectural Review as an associate then senior editor. He is now a teaching fellow in the department of architecture and civil engineering at the University of Bath, and in June 2019, he was appointed the senior architect for the campus division at the University of Bristol.
Edmund Sumner is a London-based architectural photographer who has collaborated with leading architects, publishers, and curators worldwide since 1988. Sumner can often be found shooting in India, Japan, Mexico, the Middle East, and the United States.
