Sarabhai House, Ahmedabade, India (GA 32)

Tokyo: A.D.A. Edita, 1974. First Edition. Folio. Item #027570

no pagination, chiefly illustrations (some in color) and plans. In 1951 the French architect Le Corbusiner was commissioned to lead the design work for chandigarh, the new capital city for the Indian Punjab. He received inquiries from Gira Sarabhai, once a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, about the possibility of designing a unique house with the concept to "reveal the world" and taking into account the temperature extremes. One of the most important studies of modern architecture adapting to an ancient culture. Edward Teague produced an Index to the entire Global Architecture series which remains one of the best pictorial studies of world architecture. Entire sets have only survived in universities or other reference libraries where they have not been allowed to be checked out. Bound in color pictorial stiff paper wraps lettered in white. A near fine copy.
