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.
