You are cordially invited to the launch of the book titled
"The Structure: Works of Mahendra Raj"

'The Structure' is a 400 plus page book that unravels the oeuvre of Mahendra Raj's sixty prolific years of practice as a structural engineer. His unusually inventive and intuitive work reveals bold and pioneering engineering solutions for buildings in exposed concrete over the years. Most of his structures are now artefacts that narrate the energetic period of nation building in post-independent India, such as the Hall of Nations, STC, LIC, Gandhi Memorial, NDMC and NCDC in Delhi, the Indoor Stadium in Srinagar, Tagore Hall and Municipal Stadium in Ahmedabad to name a few. 'The Structure' presents 28 projects explored through a rich collection of archival drawings, calculations and photographs.

The book is edited by Rohit Raj Mehndiratta, Ariel Huber and Vandini Mehta with contributions from architects, engineers and academics from around the world.
