Located in the heart of New Delhi, Correa's design includes a library, auditorium, art gallery and the headquarters of the British Council. It has evolved from a traditional library to a hub for knowledge distribution, culture, and networking, as well as a venue for a variety of art and cultural events. Correa's design references Hinduism, Islam and the European Enlightenment as well as the importance of cosmic and religious symbolism to his work. He traces a route through the building from a spiral symbolising Bindu - the energy centre of the Cosmos through the traditional Islamic Char Bagh to a European icon, inlaid in marble and granite, used to represent the Age of Reason.
