Iconic building "Hall of Nations" at pragati maidan by Ar. Raj Rewal was demolished
#1
The iconic buildings created by structural engineer Mahendra Raj and architect Raj Rewal in 1972, a reflection of modern India, was demolished by ITPO in hurry  after the rejection of Plea in high court. Indian trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) razed the structures two days after their architect Raj Rewal lost the case in Delhi high court on April 20. 
The court relied on the decision of the Heritage Conservation Committee (HCC), which held that the Hall of Nations wasn’t a heritage structure since it was less than 60-year-old. The HCC had earlier this year rejected the recommendation of a sub-committee that had held it as heritage structure.
