Inheritance Projects will present research from our ongoing New Towns Project at the forthcoming conference 'The Influence of Fry and Drew'.
Convened by the Trasnational Architecture Group, the conference seeks to investigate the themes and movements of twentieth century architecture and town planning that have been influenced by the work of architects Jane Drew and Maxwell Fry, who were involved in the development of the New Town Chandigarh in Northern India.
Inheritance Curator Claire Louise Staunton will deliver a paper unpacking two examples of anarchic architecture in Chandigarh as a subaltern creation of complex spaces disruptive of narratives that de-politicise or renew colonialism.
A film produced by James Price in collaboration with Inheritance Projects, will be screened alongside the presentation. Corrections and Omissions (2013) maps the autonomous architectural activities of Chandigarh.
