Charles Correa coined the phrase "Form Follows Climate" in the 1970s during the energy crisis and explained his own work through this lens. The foundation sees “Form Follows Climate” also as a provocation today – a call to architects and designers to find solutions to sustainable, energy-passive, and energy-active buildings. 

This opening session will start with a brief recorded lecture by Correa from the 1970s, followed by Kartik Vora giving the Remembering Charles Correa Lecture: ‘Surface and Symbol.’ Participants will also hear Marc Angelil present the Charles Correa Memorial Lecture: ‘Pioneering Errors: HVAC + W & S + E & IT’. After the two lectures, Kapil Gupta will lead the discussion and then open the floor for questions.

4 Sessions on the 4 Fridays in November – 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th 

Starting at 6:00 PM Indian Time, 12:30 PM Greenwich Mean Time.
