Comment by the Indian architect Rahul Mehrotra, Professor and Chair of Urban Planning and Design, Harvard University: ”I very much enjoyed the range of issues touched upon and based on first hand experiences! The fine grain reading of issues in the Indian city is an important contribution so is the attempt to connect so many dots to make sense of the moving targets we encounter in Urbanism in India.”

Excerpt from the curator’s statement: Sustainable urban development is a global issue. Not only in the geographical sense, whereby we all depend on the same resources and are affected by the same pollution, but also in the professional sense in that no single discipline can solve these problems alone. Thus, sustainable urban development must be thought out in collaboration between various peoples and disciplines.

Excerpt from the introduction by Eric Messerschmidt: ”99 is not a presentation of architecture in the usual sense. Nor is it a display of a specific style, theory or ism, defining itself by distancing itself from standard architecture. In the words of the author it is an exhibition that attempts to substitute architecture with a capital “A” in favor of an understanding of architecture as a materialization of our time.
