Life Insurance Corporation Building

Jeewan Bharti Building


A structure that defies conventions, the LIC Building highlights the relevance of vertical structures in the contemporary period, when the entire neighbourhood of Connaught Place was dominated by low-rise, horizontal structures. Its glass façade reflects the new Delhi and it stands tall as a forerunner of the future generation. LIC was created in response to Correa`s vision of ideal living. Through apartments that resemble tubes, large openings that allow cross-ventilation, and varying apartment sizes, the building encourages those from differing income groups to live together in the same building.

Opened, 1986
