The Building | O P Jindal Center
India House was designed by renowned Houston architect Ray de la Reza. Here's the description of the design from their website and some photographs: "India House is designed to build on India´s rich architectural principles rather than replicate its forms. The facility houses various organizations and provides spaces for community services including cultural/language education; immigration consultation; minor medical care and legal services. Reconfigurable multipurpose rooms allow for a range of events from small private functions to large celebratory events seating up to 563. Visitor attentions are immediately captured with an impressive jewel-like entry lobby. The interior lobby volume sparkles with light-play created by patterned glass designed as a contemporary interpretation of the Hindi "Jali", a traditional sun-screen with our contemporized interpretation."
The India House was completed at a cost of $5,160,000 and has been available for occupancy since August, 2008.
