The Correa Map

The Charles Correa Foundation is proud to publish a map of his work. This map plots buildings designed by Correa in his six decades of practice; projects built worldwide, though many of them in India.

We believe that the theories discussed by Charles Correa in his many writings can be best understood through his built work. We hope that this map can help interested visitors locate these buildings, visit them, and understand them in their context.

The list is arranged chronologically and buildings are tagged by typology.

There are yet a few projects by Correa that we know were built, but due to rapid urbanisation all around, we are now unable to locate. They are:

  • Plutonium Plant, Mumbai, Maharashtra
  • Lalbhai House, Ahmedabad, Gujarat
  • Humanities Department, Vallabh Vidyanagar, Anand, Gujarat
  • Suhrid Geigy – Laboratory and Processing Plant, Mumbai, Maharashtra
  • Palm Avenue House, Kolkata, West Bengal
  • Sen-Raleigh Polytechnic, Asansol, West Bengal
  • Thakore House, Mumbai, Maharashtra
  • Carbide Battery Plant, Hyderabad, Telangana
  • Dutta House, New Delhi
  • Ferreira House, Mumbai
  • Menezes House, Pune, Maharashtra, 
  • Kapur Think Tank (Surya Kund), Bijwasan Najafgarh Road, New Delhi
  • Gobhai House, Golvad, Dahanu, Maharashtra

If you could help us locate these buildings, please send us a recent image and a location pin to research@charlescorreafoundation.org with the subject “CCA Map: name of building 

Also, please let us know over email or in the comments below, if you think we have left out any of his built projects. We hope this map will grow to become an inventory of the many buildings that Charles Correa designed.
