Roger Anger 100 Years / SPECIAL FEATURE
ROGER ANGER : 100 YEARS
24th March 1923-2023
In 1965, The Mother invited the French architect, Roger Anger, to
prepare the town plan for Auroville. She worked with him through several
trials, several models till she was satisfied that Roger had captured her
vision with the iconic Galaxy plan, that we are still discovering. Far from
being an outdated plan, the Galaxy has revealed itself to be a forerunner
of the urbanism of the future with its ability to integrate life in all parts,
the human being and a growing Consciousness.
A centenary is celebrated when the life or work of a person carries
continued value or relevance. In the case of Roger Anger, it is his work
as the architect of the Galaxy plan that remains of significance and the
thing to be accomplished.
Roger Anger’s centenary dovetails perfectly with Sri Aurobindo’s 150th &
India 75th with his seminal contribution towards a conscious urbanism
that will stand out for all time, both for Auroville and for India and the
ATDC and the 150th year programs welcomes you at India Space,
Bharat Nivas, for a commemorative event in honour of Roger Anger's
work and legacy for Auroville.
