Indo-French Architecture Students Exchange Program

The obelisk of Monsieur Raymond at Moosarambagh, the reputed French general in the Nizam’s military, which still evokes awe among the visitors, is set to receive a fresh lease of life from a French connection.

The Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) authorities are now leveraging French artistic and architectural flair to develop Raymond’s tomb into a heritage precinct.

A group of architecture students, professors from Bordeaux, France along with students from Hyderabad will be providing inputs and conceptualise development of the Raymond’s tomb. Architect and professor, Ecole D’Architecture De Bordeaux, J. Kent Fitzsimons has revealed that it is a stimulating and challenging work, to develop the city and at the same time keep its historical flavour alive.

Based on the innovative ideas coming out of the collaboration, Telangana State Government will be developing Raymond’s tomb into a heritage precinct, by collaborating with HMR which will go a long way in spreading awareness and re-energising public spaces that have historical value.
