Description/Biography

Raj Rewal is an Indian architect and urban design consultant who studied architecture in New Delhi and London. His
humanist approach to architecture responds to the complexities of rapid urbanisation, the demands of climate, cultural
traditions, and building crafts and technologies. His built works comprise a wide range of building types, including the
Nehru Pavilion, the Scope office complex, the Central Institute of Educational Technology, the World Bank building, the
National Institute of Immunology, the Parliament Library, and the Asian Games Village, all located in New Delhi, India, as
well as the Ismaïli Centre in Lisbon, Portugal. Mr. Rewal's commitment to housing is also central to his built works. In
1989, Mr. Rewal was awarded the Gold Medal of the Indian Institute of Architects, and the Robert Mathew Award of the
Commonwealth Association of Architects; in 1993, he was presented the Mexican Association of Architects Award, and is
also the recipient of the Great Masters Award of the JK Trust. Mr. Rewal's works have been widely exhibited and
published, with monographs in English and French; his most recent publication is entitled Humane Habitat at Low Cost.
Mr. Rewal was a professor at the New Delhi School of Architecture and Planning, and has taught and delivered lectures
at universities in Asia, America, and Europe.
