THE QUIET AMERICAN
AN ACCOUNT OF A POSSIBLE INDIAN MODERNISM |
Review by Snehanshu Mukherjee
LA 66
Building in the Garden profiles the journey of American architect Joseph Allen Stein, who has remained one of the most profound influences in post independence Indian Architecture.
The search for an Indian Identity in Modern Architecture is something that has intrigued me since my early years in architecture school. Over the years that I have practiced as an architect, I have tried to address this search through my work, as well as through my academic life as a teacher and researcher in the field of architecture and design. And I consider the architecture of Joseph Allen Stein, to be the one that showed me a way to resolve this search into a journey. Stephen White’s book on Joseph Allen Stein and his works I, therefore, consider being an invaluable part of my library. The book was first published in 1993 by OUP and has subsequently gone out of print, I regret that I did not get my copy autographed by Stein when the book first appeared and while he was still living amongst us.
