Since the 1980s a tendency to Indianize architecture has emerged in the works of prominent architectural practitioners in India. What makes this development postmodern as well as distinctly Indian is the rhetoric of mythical symbolism that has accompanied it. In this article I analyze two architectural productions: Vistara, a catalogue for the Festival of India; and the Jawahar Kala Rendra, the Center for the Arts and Crafts, Jaipur, by architect Charles Correa. Both productions have been very popular, and it is useful to take a closer critical look at them, not so much to find faults, but to reveal some of the latent biases and assumptions such cultural productions engender.
