The architecture of a country can tell you a lot about its people. For Ireland, the architecture shows the artistic expression coming through even in the face of the colonial structure. Another post-colonial country is India, they had to find their voice after the English left and they could make their own decisions. Satej is an architect who runs a firm in India. He came to Ireland and enjoyed the buildings. Often we get complacent or comfortable and the opinion of an outsider, an Indian architect can show us the true beauty in our skyline.
