Deli Cinema »Das Versprechen – Architekt BV Doshi« | SPECIAL (DE/EN)

Details

Balkrishna V. Doshi (1927–2023) ranks among the leading pioneers of modern architecture in India. While his early collaborations with Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn had a significant impact on his architecture, he had a deep understanding of local needs and building traditions as well. In 2018, he was awarded the Pritzker Prize for his life’s work. Jan Schmidt-Garre’s empathetic portrait highlights Doshi’s focus on the intimate link between people and the built environment.
