DESCRIPTION This book examines how an historic, and so-called 'traditional' city quietly evolved into one that was modern in its own terms, in form, use and meaning. Through a focused study of Delhi, the author challenges prevalent assumptions in architecture and urbanism and identifies an interpretation of modernism that goes beyond conventional understanding. Part one reflects on transformations and discontinuities in built form and spatial culture, and questions accepted notions of the static nature of what is normally referred to as traditional and non-Western architecture. Part two is a critical discussion of Delhi in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, redefining modernism in a way that separates the city's architecture and society from the objectified realm of the exotic whilst acknowledging non-Western ideas of modernity. Finally, the author considers 'indigenous modernities': the irregular, the uneven and the unexpected in what uncritical observers might call a coherent 'traditional' society and built environment. CONTENTS 1. Becoming 'Modern' 2. Fragmenting Domestic Landscapes: From Mansions to Margins 3. Negotiating Streets and Squares: Spatial Culture in the Public Realm 4. Sanitizing Neighborhoods: Geographies of Health 5. Beyond the Walls: Commerce of Urban Expansion 6. Imagining Modernity: Symbolic Terrains of Housing 7. Recovering an Urban Past

About the Book One of the key geographical developments over the last two centuries has been that of urbanisation. In recent years this has exploded globally, particularly in developing countries. Between 2009 and 2050, the world population is expected to increase by 2.3 billion, from 6.8 to 9.1 billion. At the same time, urban populations are projected to increase by 2.9 billion, from 3.4 billion in 2009 to 6.3 billion total in 2050. In developing countries, urbanisation usually occurs when people move from villages to settle in cities in hope of gaining a better standard of living. The movement of people from one place to another is called migration. Migration is influenced by economic growth and development and by technological change and possibly also by conflict and social disruption. The process of urbanisation has positive as well as negative economic and social changes. Urbanisation affects land, water, air and wildlife because of the number of people, the amount of buildings and construction, and the increased demands on resources. It has impacts on the physical environment in several ways. This comprehensive book will be useful to students, teachers and policy makers related to urban planning.

About the Book The Grand Anaicut at Kallanai, true to its name, significantly recapitulates the magnificent history of the Chola Empire. The intricate system of water-ways amply portrays their mastery, articulating their sagacity as architects and builders par excellence. Although the structure’s fabric was simple, it has stood robustly on pervious soil for two millennia, often enduring the wrath and fury of the Cauvery. The versatility of architectural modeling has not only relived this exemplar specimen of engineering, but also helped examine and unravel the way it has influenced Tamil Nadu’s civillisational discourse sustainably through time.
