Architecture in Bangalore, India

This condominium development on Hosur Road was pretty spectacular, and I drove right past it mornings and evenings.  It has an exuberant Greek Revival energy on a grand scale, and I rather like it - the proportions work surprisingly well.  It is a large development with a number of buildings similar to those shown here.  It appears that it will effectively be a gated community when it is completed.

This building is further south on the east side of Hosur Road at some distance.  It is another kind of Greek Revival example, but I think it is a difficult building to like.  It has an amazingly diverse set of architectural elements thrown together in an unsettling mixture.  I can understand why it is still "TO LET".

I saw an extremely wide range of architectural styles and techniques in use in Bangalore, and there were new buildings going up everywhere.  I liked the feel of this very narrow but lively building I passed along my way - notice the men on the roof, and the sign for Christ Convent High School at the bottom.
