This book is a monograph on the selected works of Indian architect Sarbjit Bahga. He has 36 years of practical experience in designing of various types of buildings, complexes and large campuses. His completed works include an eclectic and impressive range of administrative, recreational, educational, medical, residential, commercial  and  agricultural  buildings.  His  building  designs  are  innovative  and  responsive  to  function, climate and materials. He is a staunch modernist and an ardent, yet not blind, admirer of Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Louis Kahn. He is three-time recipient of the World Architecture Community Awards. His name has  been  featured  in  the  Guinness  Book  of  World  Records  for  designing  the “longest  covered  concrete corridor” in Vidya Sagar Institute of Mental Health, Amritsar. The  main  focus  of  this  book  is  to  present  a  few  selected  works  of  the  architect  which  portray  his  prolific approach to the designs of the diverse range of building types. These projects cover a vast range of scale from a tiny house and office building to sprawling campuses. It is hoped that this book will be of immense value  to  the  architects,  urban  designers,  planners,  engineers  and  the  students  of  these  disciplines.  Apart from this, it will act as an important link between the past and future developments in the profession of architecture in the Indian context.
