Balkrishna Doshi – Architecture for the People at VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM
Mar 30 – Sep 08, 2019

For Balkrishna Doshi, the architect, urban planner and educator, space is an extension of life and a methodology to look at the world. This humanist sensibility shapes the architectural vocabulary of the Pritzker Prize laureate whose early years were spent under the formative tenure of Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn. His pioneering vision of a holistic habitat grounded in bridging modernist principles with local traditions marks projects ranging in scale from academic campuses to institutions as well as social housing and residences.
