My father ended his career in a classic Lutyens bungalow (alongside) in New Delhi. Totally impractical in today's world of land shortages, yet extremely comfortable for Delhi's inhospitable climate, these bungalows represent an era of imperial rule.

My path towards architecture began with a conversation with Cyrus Jhabvala who later became head of Delhi School of Architecture. He spoke eloquently about design and building. Later meetings with Habib Rehman and Rana Man Singh, both chief architects to the government of India confirmed that this was the subject one had to learn. Among the fascinating architects I have met is Barry Gasson my tutor at Cambridge who designed the benchmark Burrell Museum at Glasgow.
