Achyut Kanvinde – Akar is a monograph on the life and works of Achyut Kanvinde, one of the pioneers of Modern Architecture in India with a professional career spanning five decades. Celebrated as the father of campus planning in India, some of Kanvinde’s better-known projects include the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur; National Dairy Development Board Campus, Anand; National Institute of Bank Management and National Insurance Academy, Pune; Nehru Science Centre, Mumbai; and National Science Centre and the ISKCON Temple in Delhi. Of the large number of projects designed under the aegis of Kanvinde Rai & Chowdhury, this book deals primarily with 45 selected works that the authors felt best represent the firms oeuvre. A compilation of unrealised projects, research studies, competitions, working drawings, and an exhaustive chronology complete the monograph.
