This large format monograph traces architectural practice, through Benninger’s work, over the past five decades of economic transformation and social change. Benninger’s experience begins in the socialist, closed economic era, when India was a rural society. It blends into the present free market, urban society of the world’s largest global economy. Each of Benninger’s creations, whether in urban planning or architecture is a benchmark of India’s evolving character and persona.
