well....just like any other place we too have some good and some bad examples of contemporary architecture.
but India has not been able to grab much attn. on international front, coz we aren't producing 'technologically astounding bldgs.'
rather we are concentrating more on sensitivity towards environment and space.....i mean most of us.
so we do have some good examples of vernacular...call it modern vernacular for easier understanding.......and some good examples of spatial experimentation....we have different issues as our priority....cost-effective architecture/energy-conserving/resource conserving etc.
and when so much is to be done
i must say, stop crying and open ur eyes to find so many people trying to improve the present condition of our country...
join us. we need you too.
