Kinfolk Case Study RoomB.V. Doshi—a new exhibiton.

,

The subject of the third exhibition at Kinfolk Case Study Room is the Modernist furniture of Balkrishna Vithaldas Doshi—the first Indian architect to win the Pritzker Prize, the architecture world’s most prestigious award.

While studying in London in 1951, “B.V.” Doshi met Le Corbusier, who had been commissioned to lay out the new Indian city of Chandigarh. Doshi joined Le Corbusier’s atelier in Paris the following year and went on to assist him in Chandigarh’s development and the creation of four buildings in Ahmedabad. He would later design the Indian Institute of Management in collaboration with Louis Kahn, and founded his architecture studio, Vastu-Shilpa, in 1955. Today, Doshi is remembered as an instrumental figure in the development of contemporary Indian architecture.

Doshi passed away in 2023. This new exhibition offers a glimpse into, and a testament to, his vast achievement and innovative vision.


This exhibition is now closed.
