The Charles Correa Foundation is organizing its second annual Z-Axis Conference entitled Buildings As Ideas, which will focus on buildings and the nature of the questions they raise. The inaugural conference, Great City... Terrible Place, which was held in March 2015, intended to describe the city.

This conference is a tribute to the memory of Charles Correa and is the third in a series of events the Foundation has held named Buildings As Ideas – the first was in January, being one of four evenings Celebrating Charles Correa; the second an exhibition on Correa’s unbuilt work which opened in March; and this third event, the conference, will explore in greater depth what Correa believed – that buildings are ideas that manifest and take form.

The conference will begin with the first Charles Correa Memorial Lecture delivered on September 1st 2016 by Jean Pierre Crousse.
