The 2012 Global Practices in Architecture Lecture Series brings expert educators and practitioners from around the world to share unique perspectives and insights into the Architecture profession.
Rahul Mehrotra is Professor of Urban Design and Planning and Chair of the Department of Urban Planning and Design for the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. His firm, RMA Architects, sees a multiplicity of experiences as necessary for the evolution of culturally specific design solutions. They’ve designed and executed a conservation master plan for the Taj Mahal, a restoration of the Chowmahalla Palace in Hyderabab, and most recently, a social housing project for 100 elephants and their caretakers in Jaipur.
Mehrotra has written and lectured extensively about architecture, conservation, and urban planning in Mumbai and India, including Conserving an Image Center: The Fort Precinct in Bombay, which led to the historic Fort area in Mumbai being declared India’s first conservation precinct in 1995.
