The Embassy of Switzerland that was opened in New Delhi in 1963 was designed to be both an architectural expression of Swiss diplomacy in India and a symbol of a special political friendship between an old democracy and a young one. Both the embassy building itself, designed by Hans Hofmann and Walter Rüegg, and the staff quarters designed by Achyut Kanvinde and Shauka Rai, display a deep engagement with local architectural and climatic conditions—a model case of how “global architecture” can work. This lavishly illustrated volume celebrates this Swiss-Indian collaboration on its fiftieth anniversary through plans, photographs, and essays.
