The architecture of Ahmedabad ranges from the ancient to the very modern, from the Mughals to the last works of the contemporary Indian architects, including Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn. It is now one of the centres of modern and contemporary design (and also the home of the 2018 edition Pritzker prize, architect B.V. Doshi) and has a prominent university campus, along with Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram on the riverbank. In addition, the historic walled city of Ahmedabad has been the first city in India to be Inscribed in UNESCO’s World Heritage City list of 2017.
