Rewal, Raj (1934– ). Indian architect. Concerned to find an architecture suitable for his country, he has explored local materials and attempted to merge aspects of European Modernism with Asian vernacular forms. Among his works may be cited the Asian Games Housing (1980–2—a development with courts, terraces, and elements suggesting vernacular origins), the National Institute of Immunology (1984–90), the World Bank Office (1990–3), and the Parliament Library (1992–5), all in New Delhi.
