The splendor of India's architectural heritage

The exhibition presents the rich architectural tradition of the Indian subcontinent through several emblematic examples. After a broad introduction to the original Hindu architectural tradition, the focus lies on three historic “encounters” with a strong external traditions: the Mughals (16th-17th centuries) – the British (19th century) – Modernism (20th century). In each case, these external influences were assimilated and further developed in the original tradition. Central to the exhibition is the recreation of a traditional Indian Char Bagh.
