RESONANCE – Raj Rewal and Tradition: 30minutes
An architectural “promenade” across six projects of Raj Rewal. The Hall of nations, the Nehru Pavilion, the SCOPE building, the CIET building, the Asian games village and the NII research campus. Images of historic buildings and miniature paintings appear at strategic moments in order to show how modern rationalism, a rigorous sense of function, structure and fabrication, has been reconciled with typologies extracted from the past.
THE PARLIAMENT LIBRARY: 42 minutes
Interviews of Raj Rewal and the most important members of his team, historic documents, computer graphics, images of historic and contemporary buildings, images of the construction as well as of the completed parliament library building appear when required, in order to convey the design concepts and the innovative construction processes and techniques, using cutting edge, hi-tech, building technology, fused with the traditional Indian building crafts tradition.
