From the archive: Angela Brady interviews Charles Correa

  • Comment

In this video from 2013, former RIBA president Angela Brady interviews Charles Correa who died this week aged 84

Brady was speaking to ‘India’s greatest architect’ as he gifted his archive of 6,000 drawings to the RIBA.

Correa died on Tuesday night (18 June) after a short illness.

He is credited with shaping the architecture of post-independence India having designed some of the country’s most significant buildings.

These included the Gandhi memorial in Gujarat (1958–1963), which Correa designed when he was just 28 years old, and the Madhya Pradesh Assembly building (1996).

He was recognised for his work across the world, and in 1984 the RIBA dubbed him ‘India’s greatest architect’ handing Correa the RIBA Royal Gold Medal.
