Vandana Baweja

I am a historian of post-war mid-twentieth century architecture in the field of architecture and climate. My areas of enquiry – how ideas about the relationship between architecture and climate were forged in the mid-twentieth century and circulated globally – forms the basis of my forthcoming book on Tropical Architecture in Florida, which is under contract with the University Press of Florida. Within this broad field of architecture and climate, I have investigated the global histories of Tropical Architecture and Sustainable Architecture, particularly their transnational development and dissemination. I have written about the circulation of tropical architecture and urbanism and how they challenge canonical modernist historiography. ​
