Modern Regionalism : The Architecture of Sarbjit Bahga
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.
