The renowned architec t and urban planner is seen as the most important pioneer of modern archit ecture of his home country. During over 60 years of practice\, Doshi has r ealized around 100 projects\, including pioneering buildings like the Indi an »Institute of Management« (1977\,1992)\, his own architectural studio »Sangath« (1980)\, and the low-cost housing project »Aranya« (1989). Inspired by working with masters like Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn\, Doshi adopted elements of modern architecture and adapted them to local culture\ , traditions\, resources\, and nature itself. The exhibition will present numerous key projects realized between 1958 and 2014\, ranging from entire cities and town planning projects to large public buildings\, from privat e residences to interiors. Exhibits will include a wealth of original work s such as drawings\, models\, and art works from Doshi’s archive and stu dio\, but also photography\, film footage\, and several full-scale install ations. An extensive timeline will give an overview of the architect’s c areer from 1947 until today\, attesting to his close relationships with ot her influential architects and visionaries such as Le Corbusier and Christ opher Alexander.\nMore\nImage:\nBalkrishna Doshi\, Sangath Architect’s S tudio\, Ahmedabad\, 1980\n© Iwan Baan 2018 DTSTART:20190330T000000 DTEND:20190909T000000 LOCATION:Vitra Design Museum SUMMARY:Ausstellung - Balkrishna Doshi:\nArchitecture for the People END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
