COLONIAL ARCHITECTURE IN INDIA
10
Colonialism and its impact- early colonial architecture :forts, bungalows, cantonments – Stylistic
transformations: Neo- classicism, Gothic Revival and Indo Saracenic - PWD and
institutionalization of architecture - Building of New Delhi showcasing imperial power.
TOTAL: 45 PERIODS
OUTCOMES:
The condition of modernity and its impact on architecture has been introduced. The evolution of
modern architecture from specific aspects of modernity like Industrialisation, Urbanisation etc and
its post-world was II trajectories were studied. An overall understanding of the architectural
developments of colonial India was obtained.
