  • Not unlike a towering gateway (gopuram) to a South Indian temple-town, the building marked one’s arrival from the South in the bourgeoning national capital. … The novel post-tensioned concrete structure that Singh and Raj had devised was a monumental array of arch-like shear-walls that were deployed to suspend eight tiers of column-free, open-plan office space, overhanging a soaring public space at ground level with an exposed central circulation core. Excerpt from Peter Scriver and Amit Srivastava’s article in: SOS Brutalism: A Global Survey. Catalog DAM + Wüstenrot Foundation, Zurich (Park Books) 2017
