Scope and Content

This project series documents residential housing for officers at the Reserve Bank of India in Chandigarh, India from 1983-1986. The project consisted of four-storey apartment blocks located on twelve blocks totalling 2.87 acres. The apartment blocks had oblong-shaped spiraling staircases at exterior openings along the buildings' elevations. Located in Sector 44B, the apartments observed both the norms of the bank's staff quarters guidelines and the architectural control established in Chandigarh. This project was proposed in two phases, the second of which integrated public spaces, amenities and maintenance quarters into the campus.

The project is recorded through drawings, textual records and a photograph dating from 1983-2003. About half the drawings are originals and included are plans, elevations, sections, details and structural and electrical drawings. Many of these are working drawings, but some presentation drawings are included. The textual records consist of specifications, reports, correspondence and the project contract. The photograph shows Aditya Prakash on the roof of the finished building.
