india: unbuilt architecture

Indian architects report that a significant percentage of their work remains unbuilt – whether as concepts that didn’t make the cut at competitions, as proposals which got tied up in red tape, or as projects that were abandoned by stakeholders. While the worth of a building is usually measured by the visual, tactile and spatial experience it offers, the fact remains that unrealized ideas are just as crucial as built structures – for discourse, design and development. The forthcoming book seeks to celebrate these ideas - along with 50+ unbuilt works curated by Rajesh Advani and Ruturaj Parikh, it also features the following intriguing essays on the theme.
