im a 3rd yr student of arch. and i didnt think anyone could create a masterpiece of a cuboid as KANCHANJUNGA . it is amazing
ive also seen vidhan bhavan and ive no words to admire its greatness.
it is sad today that this profession and architects are not given importance in the normal society.it is just the architecture and art section that even finds the need of an architect . a normal person does not even realise that kanchanjunga exists on peddar rd.
when we had been to vidhan bhavan the watchman didnt let us take even one photograph from the exterior also. maybe coz of security reasons but his statement was like there in this building to photograph?
i guess that is how it is .but when u know what goes into the shaping of space and how difficult it is-the long journey from a tracing to a final sheet u cant help but realise how great and extraordinary are charles correa's works.
