Mīmāṃsā: Reflection and Critical Investigation for Appreciation of Contemporary Indian Architecture 
With Professor Vibhavari Jani
Saturday, April 9, 3:00 pm at the TVMA
(Professor Jani will appear via video conference at this event)

From thousands of years old stone cut temples to the modern skyscrapers, Indian architecture offers diversity like no other country. It requires contemplation and reflection. In this lecture, Vibhavari Jani–Associate Professor of Interior Architecture and Industrial Design at Kansas State University–will discuss the meaning of the Sanskrit word “Mimamsa”, and how reflecting on ancient Indian architecture with a critical lens can help in understanding and appreciating contemporary Indian architecture. The lecture will also focus on how contemporary Indian architects are shaping the diaspora.

This event is part of Darshan: Visions of India‘s Saturday lecture series. Admission fees to the musuem will be optional for this lecture.
