Sarbjit Bahga

I am Sarbjit Singh Bahga (born on 27 May 1957 in Hoshiarpur, India), Principal Architect, BAHGA DESIGN STUDIO LLP, a Chandigarh based Architecture+Urban Design firm. I graduated from Chandigarh College of Architecture (Panjab University), with Bachelors of Architecture in 1979. From 1980 to 2016, I worked in the Department of Architecture, Punjab; Punjab Health Systems Corporation; and Punjab State Marketing Board on various positions. In 2016 I founded Bahga Design Studio LLP. I have 37 years of practical experience in designing and supervision of various types of buildings, complexes and large campuses. My completed works include administrative, recreational, educational, medical, residential, commercial, and agricultural buildings. I am a staunch modernist and an ardent, yet not blind, admirer of Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Louis Kahn.

I have eight books to my credit, namely, Modern Architecture in India, New Indian Homes, Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Footprints on the Sands of Indian Architecture, Contemporary Architecture beyond Corbusierism, Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret: The Indian Architecture, Trees in Urban Habitat, Contemporary Indian Houses, and Landscaping Human Habitat. Apart from this, I am a keen photo-artist, particularly in the field of architectural photography and has won several awards in this field. I am regular contributor to commons.wikimedia.org and www.wikipedia.org
