Scope and content:

The Publications and writings series, 1947-2008, records the published and unpublished papers, books, articles, poems, diaries and notes of Aditya Prakash throughout his architectural education and career, up until his death in 2008. Many materials in this series are unpublished works, and concentrate on Chandigarh, urban planning, reflections on his past work and new ideas, architectural education, art and theatre. A number of these were prepared for talks and speeches Prakash gave as the Principal of the Chandigarh College of Architecture or for various clubs and committees. Published works in this series were typically published in newspapers, but some magazine and journal articles are included. This series also includes notebooks and diaries, the latter which give detailed daily accounts of Aditya Prakash’s life from 1947-1955. The writings in this series are a mix of typed and handwritten textual records, recorded primarily in English, but with some Hindi and Urdu works also included.
