CHARLES CORREA – The Architect

“The thing about architecture is that you cannot teach it. You can learn it, but you cannot teach it. And a good school is a school which makes you passionate about architecture and that teaches you how to ask questions. […] If you know how to ask the right questions, you will develop your own philosophy and your own visual vocabulary.”

– Charles Correa

Called ‘India’s Greatest Architect’ by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Correa played a pivotal role in shaping architecture and urbanism in modern India.

From Charles we learned that creation works with the metaphysical, the emotive and the spiritual. he showed us that technology and construction are but means to reach more experiential and meaningful ends.
