We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us. Winston Churchill Social, economic and functional influences play a vital role in all human activities, from science to art. What makes an architectural structure truly iconic is how best it is able to serve its purpose, without being a nuisance in any way, for the longest possible time. Hence, a kind of union of both space and time will preserve a structure s existence, resulting in contemporary & timeless architecture. If there is anyone who has strived all his life to make this the foundation of his work, it is Architect Chandrakant Patel. 4th Dimension Architecture is not just a window to the contributions Architect Patel has made to the world of architecture, it is also an inspiring glimpse into how effectively one man has constantly and honestly tried to incorporate the 4th Dimension into all his work. Because the difference between architecture and great architecture is, quite simply, just one dimension Time.

When you hear Architect Chandrakant Patel s name and draw a blank, it means he s done his job well. The architect is like and unlike an artist. They clearly contribute to the art of the world, but at the same time, they let the art speak for itself than be attached to a credit tag. And nobody has held this up more than Architect Patel a man behind some of the most iconic structures on the Mumbai skyline. From living in caves to using that logic into making stone structures that utilized space a little better to adding aesthetic value to it and finally, coming up with designs that are dynamic, ever prepared to keep up with current and future times clearly, architecture has come a long way. And this last bit creating dynamic structures is what has always been at the forefront of what Architect Chandra Patel (his more professionally known name) has set out to do with every single one of his creations. ""4th Dimension Architecture"" Book, isn t a guidebook but you might end up using it as one because it isn t easy to merge innovation with traditional concepts. This book isn t a memoir, but you will end up learning a lot more about the man from simply knowing how he works. This book isn t the architect s Bible but it has all the makings of one. This book never set out to be what it has become but you learn to expect the unexpected when someone like Chandrakant Patel is involved. As an architect as a good architect one is not only defining time but is breathing life into something that is made out of something as lifeless as metal rods and cement mixtures. And yet, once these drab structures are inhabited, life is pretty much contained within them. Generations come and go, but we truly only know those generations by studying the structures they built. And if we simply glance at what Architect Chandrakant Patel has achieved and continues to achieve we ll have a pretty good idea that our future generations are going to be mighty proud of this one. If you see Architect Chandrakant Patel right from the beginning of his journey, he is still continuing on his chosen path, but it is his humility that hasn t allowed you to see the generosity and kindness in the man. He does not believe in highlighting much else than his work but there is so much more to the person that he is, which ends up contributing to how he goes about his work. Not only does he believe in giving back to the profession that has given him so much by guiding young, aspiring architects or is invited to speak at lectures and seminars, he also offers his profession the respect fit for a God with ultimate sincerity and maintaining its sanctity.
