Charles Correa Gold Medal | Past Winners

The Charles Correa Gold Medal is an award initiated in 1998 by the Indian architect and urbanist Charles Correa.

At its inception in 1998, the medal was awarded annually to the best thesis project from the Goa College of Architecture, Panaji. A couple of years later the scope was extended to schools of architecture in Mumbai, with administrative assistance from the Urban Design Research Institute (UDRI). Over 17 years, the Charles Correa Gold Medal has selected 16 gold medalists and 23 honourable mentions which were reviewed and selected by a jury which included Charles Correa, Kamu Iyer, and other eminent architects.

From 2021, the Charles Correa Foundation has administered the awarding of the Gold Medal.
