Brutalism Secretariat Building

Shortly after independence in 1949 India was in a phase of finding its own identity. With his massive buildings made of exposed concrete and brick in Chandigarh and Ahmedabad Le Corbusier was, in 1951, one of the key masterminds stimulating the new architectural beginnings on the subcontinent. Against this backdrop, in his wake local architects such as Doshi developed new brutalist design language.
