B.V. Doshi

Balkrishna Vithaldas Doshi was born in Pune, India, on August 26, 1927. Doshi’s career spans over six decades, during which he has melded the principles of modernism with his homeland’s rich cultural and traditional narratives. A disciple of Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, Doshi has been instrumental in shaping the architectural discourse in India and beyond. His contributions range from educational institutions and public buildings to residential complexes, each project imbued with a sensitivity to climate, context, and sustainability.
