Rahul Mehrotra on Architecture in Context | Masterclass at Godrej India Culture Lab
On 9 August we had the honour of hosting a Masterclass by architect Rahul Mehrotra. His lecture commented on the nature of architecture today, about communities, contexts, pedagogy and the need to build with empathy. Mehrotra lovingly calls Mumbai a ‘kinetic city’ and makes a case for building for flux and transition by focusing on synthesis and not absolute solutions. To young architects, urban planners and designers, here’s Mehrotra’s perspective on how architecture can be used to affect change.
