India’s greatest Architect. That was the title given to Charles Correa when he was alive. In a career spanning 5 decades, he designed over a 100 buildings, with a design style that spoke to and of the people. But perhaps his biggest contribution to society at large is a generation of architects that he inspired, teaching them what Modernism could mean for India. But the legacy of this man goes much beyond just architecture. So today lets uncover his story, Welcome to Blessedarch and today on this channel we are looking at the life and designs of Charles Correa.
