Achyut Purushottam Kanvinde —28 December was an Indian architect who worked in functionalist approaches with elements of Brutalist architecture.
He received the Padma Shri in He was born in Achare, in the Konkan region of Maharashtrain in a large family. His mother died when he was two and his father was an arts teacher in Mumbai. Kanvinde, influenced by his father, a portrait and landscape painter, took up art and graduated in architecture from Sir J. School kanvinds Arts, Mumbai in He was then sent by the Government of India to study at Harvard where he worked under Walter Gropius and was influenced by his thinking and teaching.
Some of his famous batchmates were Paul RudolphI. Pei and John Perkins. Tanuja and Murad Chowdhury. Kanvinde played with space and forms. He gave great importance to natural light. The form of the building is such that kanvindr problem of ventilation as well as excessive heat is beautifully solved. He championed the cause of vernacular architecture. He believed that values and historical influences contributed towards good architecture.
This, after all, is at the very core of his work. In India the search for a new architectural expression must continue — and this must go beyond the satisfaction of matter of fact functional needs. In my own case, I must acknowledge my tremendous debt to Gropius — it was he who really exposed me to kanvijde power of technology on the one hand and the psychological dimensions of spatial organisation on the other.
Actually my present concerns and realisations are all reflections of my earlier preoccupations: He believed that a grid of columns forming a matrix giving structural and spatial aspect would turn a design more sophisticated and faceted. He believed in the science of Vaastushastra. The institute was started in December in a room in the canteen building of the Harcourt Butler Technological Institute at Agricultural Gardens in Kanpur, inthe institute moved to its present location, on the Grand Trunk Road near the village of Kalyanpur in Kanpur district.

Harry Huskey of the University of California, Berkeley, inthe institute began an independent academic program in Computer Science and Engineering, leading to M. Government funding was reduced as a reaction to the sentiment that the IITs were contributing to the brain drain. The institute has around students with undergraduate students and postgraduate students, IIT Kanpur is to open an extension centre in Noida with the plan of making a small convention centre there for supporting outreach activities.

Brutalist architecture — Brutalist architecture is a movement in architecture that flourished from the s to the mids, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century.
British architectural critic Reyner Banham achtut the term into brutalism to identify the emerging style, there is often an emphasis on graphically expressing in the external elevations and in the whole-site architectural plan the main functions and people-flows of the achyu. Brutalism became popular for educational kannvinde, but was rare for corporate projects. Brutalism became favoured for government projects, high-rise housing.
In one critical appraisal by Banham, Brutalism was posited not as a style, Brutalism as an architectural critical term was not always consistently used by critics, architects themselves usually avoided using it altogether.
More recently, brutalism has become used in popular discourse to refer to buildings of the twentieth century that are large or unpopular — as a synonym for brutal. In England, the term was adopted by architects Alison. Concrete is used for its raw and unpretentious honesty, contrasting dramatically with the refined and ornamented buildings constructed in the elite Beaux-Arts style. Surfaces of cast concrete are made to reveal the nature of its construction. Brutalist building materials include brick, glass, steel, rough-hewn stone.
Another common theme in Brutalist designs is the exposure of the buildings functions—ranging from their structure, from another perspective, the achut of the Hunstanton School included placing the facilitys water tank, normally a hidden service feature, in a prominent, visible tower. This style had a position in the architecture of European communist countries from the mids to the late s. In Czechoslovakia brutalism was presented as an attempt to create a national, John Andrewss government and institutional structures in Australia also exhibit the style.
Marcel Breuer was known for his approach to the style.

The terms Maharashtra, Maharashtri, Marathi and Maratha may have derived from the same root, however, their exact etymology is uncertain.
Kanvonde the Marathas as a people do not seem to be mentioned before the thirteenth or fourteenth century, the most widely accepted theory among the linguistic scholars is that the words Maratha and Maharashtra ultimately derived from achhut combination of Maha and rashtrika.
The word rashtrika is a Sanskritized form of Ratta, the name of a tribe or dynasty of petty chiefs ruling in the Deccan region. However, this theory has not found acceptance among scholars who believe it to be the Sanskritised interpretation of later writers.

Gropiuss career advanced in the postwar period, henry van de Velde, the master of the Grand-Ducal Saxon School of Arts and Crafts in Weimar was asked to step down in due to his Belgian nationality. Kanfinde recommendation for Gropius to succeed him led eventually to Gropiuss appointment as master of the school inin principle, the Bauhaus represented an opportunity to extend beauty and quality to every home through well designed industrially produced objects.
InGropius was involved in the Glass Chain utopian expressionist correspondence under the pseudonym Mass. Paul Rudolph architect — Paul Marvin Rudolph was an American architect and the Chair of Yale Universitys Department of Architecture for six years, known for his use of concrete and highly complex floor plans.
His father kanvibde an itinerant Methodist preacher, and through their travels Rudolph was exposed to the architecture of the American south and he also showed early talent at painting and music.

The large blocks provide shade for the windows, allowing the Florida home to be easily cooled and this houses seaside facade of stacked rectangles exemplifies the sculptural nature of Rudolphs work during this period. Achuut fascination with European Modernism and the theory made kanvonde a difficult building to construct.
Rudolph had to concern for multiple influences as well as his own style. At the time, Rudolph was working independently and would become an icon in European Modernism.
