Architecture and sustainable development remain priority areas of Indo-French cooperation. Renowned French architects have left their imprint in many Indian cities renewing the relationship forged by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. Cities such as Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Pondicherry, with concentrations of French works in architecture and urban planning are global references in this domain. Heritage conservation, modernizing urban spaces while imbibing thoughtful sustainable practices and respect for the environment, providing meeting ground for experts and professionals of architecture  through various events, exhibitions, interactions, exchanges are of essence and the Institut français en Inde provides ample such opportunities.
