A distinguished doyen of architecture from India, Raj Rewal has, for long, set global precedents with his urban narratives of design that have been integrally and richly steeped in their contextual inferences. The concerted juxtaposition of traditional concepts and contemporary syntax is reflective of his fascination for weaving expressions of heritage and history into a modern vocabulary, often revealing layer upon layer of intuitive interpretation and deep meaning. Effortlessly threading together episodes of design, he merges scale with surroundings and geometry with rhythm; binds space with structure and nuance; modulates form and light, and courses the exterior through the interior to create a series of interconnected experiences as distinct from each other as they are together. Through a repertoire of residential, housing, public and institutional buildings, his work is characterised by his concern for the climate, the promotion of craftsmanship and new technologies, and the creation of humane architecture.
