Sir Peter will be in New Delhi from 18th to 26th of August but the exhibition will remain open from 21st August to 22nd September. The event is presented by Gallery Espace in association with Architecture Discipline, established by Akshat Bhatt. Gallery Espace in Delhi will display 34 sketches of the architectural icon drawn between the 60s and 2000. Since constructed development is a hot topic today, these works are very much contextual to the current milieu.

He is also the founder of Archigram and has been a legendary figure in world architecture for over 50 years. The drawings exhibited include the 1963 Montreal Tower, ‘Trickling Towers’, the ‘Tower of Studios’ and a series of conceptual drawings under the name ‘Skywaft City’.
