British Architects to design new Indian Temple to resurrect 700 year old lost architectural tradition

With our interest in all things to do with temple design, it is interesting to read in Building Design about an architect in Wales who is to design a Hindu temple in Bangalore, in an ancient style that was phased out over 700 years ago.
Adam Hardy, a leading authority on Indian temple architecture and design, is probably the only person in the world who has the knowledge and understanding of this particular Hindu architectural tradition, known as the style of the ‘Hoysala Dynasty’ which was lost over time. The building will not be a replica of existing temples in the region but a new interpretation of this lost tradition.
We will be closely watching the progress on this commission. Plus it will be one more reason to visit India in the future.
