Architect: Robert Fellowes Chisholm

Chisholm was one of the most gifted English architects working in India and a vehement supporter of Indian craftsmen, “the men who will actually leave the impress of their hands on the material. These men have an art language of their own, a language which you can recognise but cannot thoroughly understand. For this reason an architect practising in India should unhesitatingly select to practice in the native styles of art – indeed the natural art-expression of the men is the only art to be obtained in the country.” Chisholm was the Principal of the School of Industrial Art at Madras, and won the commision for designing the Presidency College and the University Senate House.
