PHOTOINK is pleased to present IIT Delhi: A Modernist Case Study designed by Chowdhury & Gulzar Singh, a two-person exhibition by Madan Mahatta and Randhir Singh exploring the role of the photographer in relationship to architecture, history and time. The modernist site of the Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi, built between 1961-1968, is viewed through the vantage points of Mahatta’s stark and heroic buildings and Singh’s contemporary perspective six decades later drawing in issues of inhabitation and architectural materiality. Designed by architect J.K Chowdhury and structural engineer Gulzar Singh, the project was critical ground for early experiments in modernist architecture in the capital city.
