THE STRUCTURE: WORKS OF MAHENDRA RAJ. Vandini Mehta. Park Books, Zurich, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 428 pp. with 570 ills. (267 col.). 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9783038600251 In English.
Publisher's description: The Structure explores the work of Mahendra Raj, India's most significant structural engineer. Examining Raj's sixty prolific years of practice, this volume looks at his unusually inventive and intuitive work and how he has offered pioneering engineering solutions for buildings in exposed concrete. As this book shows, many of his structures can be seen as monuments narrating the history of architecture in post-independence India. The Structure features twenty-eight of Mahendra Raj's buildings in detail through rich photographs and color reproductions of archival plans. Essays are contributed by Raj himself and by the architects Neelkanth Chhaya and Jaimini Mehta. Also included are interviews with Raj by the architect Sanjay Prakash and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, a conversation with the architect BV Doshi, as well as an illustrated complete list of Raj's works.
