The story of Golconde is, on one level, the story of Antonin Raymond designing the very first Modernist reinforced concrete building in India; on another, it is the story of George Nakashima’s shepherding the construction of the building, and in doing so, awakening to a higher consciousness. His course of life was forever changed, enabling him to manifest Karma Yoga in his own unique way – both in Architecture and in Furniture making.

The Golconde book is a result of a desire to share the hidden architectural gem without disturbing the atmosphere of peace and beauty which has miraculously remained intact since its completion during World War II.
