B V Doshi

Introduction A teacher, a speaker, an architect-Balkrishna Doshi is a man who has worn several hats. Along with a handful of pioneers, he is responsible for bringing modern architecture to India. Balkrisna Vithaldas Doshi applies Modernists concepts to an Indian context, and he has developed a theory of the city as an accretion of layers and overlays. As a result, his work is a visual feast of diverse mediums, dimensions and textures. B V Doshi, , is a relatively well-known Indian Architect in US. influenced by the works of Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn.... he's one of the 'sensible' architects that we have considered not only India's premier architect but also a fine structural engineer in his own right. Produced some fine examples of architecture.

Early years

Balkrishna Vithaldas Doshi was born in Pune, India in 1927. After he completed his studies at J. J. School of Art, Mumbai in 1950 he became a senior designer on Le Corbusier's projects in Ahmedabad and Chandigarh. In 1956 he established a private practice in Vastu-Shilpa, Ahmedabad and in 1962 he established the Vastu-Shilpa Foundation for Environmental Design. He also founded and designed the School of Architecture and Planning in Ahmedabad. Doshi has worked in partnership as Stein, Doshi & Bhalla since 1977. Over the years Doshi has created architecture that relies on a sensitive adoption and refinement of modern architecture within an Indian context. The relevancy of his environmental and urban concerns make him unique as both a thinker and teacher. Architectural scale and massing, as well as a clear sense of space and community mark most of his work. Doshi's architecture provides one of the most important models for modern Indian architecture.
