Weiss/Manfredi Re-Envisions the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, India

WEISS/MANFREDI has been commissioned by the Department of State to re-envision the iconic embassy compound in New Delhi, India. The firm's master plan restores the early modernist Chancery Building and recasts the Embassy Compound as a multi-functional 28-acre campus setting. The first phase of the project includes the addition of a significant new office annex and a transformed landscape that will provide a secure campus for America's growing mission to India.

Now, 50 years after the opening of Edward Durell Stone's Embassy, the design gives renewed architectural measure to America's diplomatic presence in India. The design of individual buildings, resilient gardens, and reflecting pools are inspired by India's reciprocal tradition of architecture and landscape and will exemplify the spirit of openness, environmental stewardship, and innovation. WEISS/MANFREDI was selected through the Department of State's Excellence Initiative for U.S. Diplomatic Facilities.
