…maybe not that much – we neither! Following the exhibition ACCESS FOR ALL – SÃO PAULO’S ARCHITECTURAL INFRASTRUCTURES the A.M. Architekturmuseum der TU München organized another great exhibition that will open its doors to the public on October 17th, 2019:
ARCHITECTURE FOR THE PEOPLE
Indian architect, urban planner, and teacher 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 Architecture 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 Kahn, with whom he had previously collaborated. Based on their modern design vocabularies, he developed his own style to meet local needs and Indian traditions. In the spring 2019 the Vitra Design Museum will present the first European retrospective of Doshi’s work. A wealth of original material including models, plans, paintings, photos, films, and full-scale replicas will highlight his accomplishments in architecture, urban planning, design, and art.
