Exhibitions
From
until
The architect Balkrishna V. Doshi (born 1927 in Pune, India) ranks among the most influential pioneers of modern Indian architecture. In 2018, he won the prestigious Pritzker Prize. Since the 1950s he has created more than 100 buildings for public and cultural institutions as well as housing estates and residences. Doshi achieved international acclaim for his visionary urban planning and housing projects and is known for his dedication in the field of education. His understanding of architecture is strongly influenced by his learnings from Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn, with whom he had previously collaborated. In spring 2019, the Vitra Design Museum will present the first European retrospective of Doshi’s work.
