The United States Department of State has commissioned WEISS/MANFREDI to re-envision the Edward Durell Stone-designed embassy compound in New Delhi, India. Fifty years after its opening, the masterplan hopes to "restore the early modernist Chancery Building and recast the Embassy Compound as a multi-functional 28-acre campus setting." The masterplan's first phase will see the addition of a new office annex and restore the complex's landscape.

"Now, 50 years after the opening of Edward Durell Stone's Embassy, the design gives renewed architectural measure to America's diplomatic presence in India. The design of individual buildings, resilient gardens, and reflecting pools are inspired by India's reciprocal tradition of architecture and landscape and will exemplify the spirit of openness, environmental stewardship, and innovation," says WEISS/MANFREDI.
