The Structure explores the work of Mahendra Raj, India’s most significant structural engineer. Examining Raj’s sixty prolific years of practice, this volume looks at his unusually inventive and intuitive work and how he has offered pioneering engineering solutions for buildings in exposed concrete. As this book shows, many of his structures can be seen as monuments narrating the history of architecture in post-independence India. The book is edited by Vandini Mehta, Rohit Raj Mehndiratta (SMArchS '02), and Ariel Huber.
