A panel ‘Celebrating Architecture with Jugal Kishore Chowdhury’ was hosted on March 23, 2017 by the Sushant School of Art and Architecture (SSAA), Ansal University, in collaboration with the Council of Architecture ( COA) and the JK Chowdhury Trust. The discussion inaugurated an exhibition of the ‘Philosophy and Work’ of the pioneering architect. Jugal Kishore Chowdhury was among the first generation of architects in post-Independence India, a path-finder who was responsible for creating a modern Indian identity in architecture.
The ground-breaking exhibition is the first in the series planned at SSAA that will focus on Modern Indian Masters of architecture. We aim to provide a platform for celebrating modern architecture in India and to position these architects on the global map. We will also house archives of eminent architects to establish a resource centre of international importance.
Come, join in the celebration. The exhibition can be viewed from : 23rd March to 6th April 2017 at : Sushant School of Art and Architecture, Ansal University, Golf Course Road, Sector 55, Gurgaon.
