The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) 2010 Mumbai Conference, February 9 2010
Wednesday 3rd February 2010. Mumbai, India. Charles Correa, Founder, Charles Correa Architects, Mumbai, presents at CTBUH 2010 Mumbai Conference. Charles Correa, perhaps more than any other Indian architect, has devoted a life's work to exploring appropriate architectural responses for Indian buildings that work to both a local-vernacular and global-modern palette. His architecture cuts across many building typologies and scales, including the seminal 1983 Kanchanjunga Apartments, Mumbai. In this presentation we hear from Mr Correa regarding the urban directions of Mumbai, and what role the tall building has to play in that.
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is the world’s leading resource for professionals focused on the inception, design, construction, and operation of tall buildings and future cities.
Founded in 1969 and headquartered at Chicago’s historic Monroe Building, the CTBUH is a not-for-profit organization with an Asia Headquarters office at Tongji University, Shanghai; a Research Office at Iuav University, Venice, Italy; and a Chicago Research & Academic Office at the Illinois Institute of Technology. CTBUH facilitates the exchange of the latest knowledge available on tall buildings through publications, research, events, working groups, web resources, and its extensive network of international representatives. The CTBUH also developed the international standards for measuring tall building height and is recognized as the arbiter for bestowing such designations as “The World’s Tallest Building.”
