Charles Correa to speak on Working in India

Thursday 16 May, 6pm
Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

The problems of urban crowding can be eased says Charles Correa, who will be speaking on Working in India on Thursday 16 May at LSE.

Charles Correa will give an illustrated talk, which follows on from a lecture he gave last year entitled Housing and Density, which looked at how higher density housing can be designed to create more sustainable urban communities. Charles Correa will focus on the problems he has encountered in his own work regarding housing and density, and focus on the solutions he found. 

A distinguished architect and urban designer based in Bombay, India, Charles Correa's work has won many awards, including the RIBA Royal Gold Medal in 1984, the Chicago Architectural Award in 1986 and the UIA Gold Medal in 1990. He is an international lecturer and traveller.

This lecture is free and open to all. No ticket is required.
