IMPERIAL CONVERSATIONS: INDO-BRITIONS AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF SOUTH INDIA (hb)2007
Author: PILLAI
ISBN: 8190363425
Year: 2007
Publisher: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS (INDIA)
Category: HISTORY
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 326
 ABOUT THE TITLE
This book tells two interwoven stories. At a macro level it tells a story of the pleasures and compromises of cultural sharing in the making of imperial architecture. At a micro level it sets out to recover conversations between people—the Indo-Britons—who met at the building interface in south India where two very different aesthetic and material practices collided. The narrative is set between 1800 and 1880—the historical gap in which a colonial state appeared in India and Indian architects disappeared from British view.
AUTHOR:
Shanti Jayewardene-Pillai is trained as an architect in Sri Lanka and the UK. She obtained her Masters in architectural history from University College London and her DPhil from the University of Oxford. She has practised as an architect in Sri Lanka and the UK and taught history at the Bartlett School of Architecture London University. She now lives in Oxfordshire.
