This book reflects the vast range of responses and cultural approaches to a unique architectural challenge - the designing of the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, a sprawling cultural complex in New Delhi. The international competition for the IGNCA design drew 194 entries from thirty-seven countries and carried an award of Rs.10,00,000.

Presented here are approximately fifty of the proposals, of which the first five prize­ winning entries are set forth in some detail. The selection was made by the eminent archiect A.P. Kanvinde, a former student of Walter Gropius at Harvard and a member of the IGNCA Jury. Beyond the purpose of documentation, this book serves as an encyclopaedia of ideas and information for architects and builders throughout the world.
