Initial Thesis Abstract: Co-operate Corporation

In the aftermath of World War II, the exigency for urbanization and development led to the transformation of the architecture practice into a corporate model of scientists, engineers, builders and manufacturers to address the Modern needs of people. But soon following decolonization and emergence of economic global exchanges, this corporation took another major turn through its franchise operations, diffusing their models into developing nations. The architecture, which might have materialized from the need of mass production in post war regions, had now turned into a uniform experience of architecture all over the world with a predefined modernity being imported in even unexplored conditions. The thesis reflects upon these changing forms of architecture practice and how they have moulded in the late twentieth century by looking in particular at the present condition in Gurgaon, the millennium city of India.
