The Institute of Indology was designed to house ancient manuscripts, a research center and
eventually, a museum. “All the elements one finds in Indian buildings are present [here]. I had studied
a Jain upashraya, a home for monks, before I designed it. I had also met several Jain saints in the city
to understand the traditional architecture for this building type.” Here, the building’s two stories, high
plinth, and full length veranda are all components of traditional Indian buildings.
