Speaking with The Hindu: “A city without heritage spaces is like a person without memory,” - Benny Kuriakose on the role of conservation in the present day context.
"Conservation architecture must be taken up with a sense of urgency, Benny Kuriakose tells DIVYA KUMAR. Kuriakose’s a laconic man, not generally given to grand speeches, but his passion for the conservation of heritage buildings comes through clearly as we speak. Very few people were talking about conservation architecture even when Kuriakose returned from the U.K. in 1987; indeed, he was one of the first few Indians to specialise in the field."
