Balkrishna Doshi: An Architecture for India

 
William J.R. Curtis (Author)
Synopsis

Balkrishna Doshi is an architect, urbanist and educator who builds in harmony with the climate, culture and traditions of India. His contribution has long been acknowledged internationally but this is the first monograph to be devoted to his work. The book shows how Doshi has bridged the gap between modern architecture and the age-old lessons of India’s peasant villages and ancient buildings. At a time of rapid and unsettling urbanisation, Doshi’s architecture reaffirms the links between community and nature.

The book is in four main parts a historical essay; a section which analyses key projects in detail with the aid of sketches, models, drawings and diary jottings; a selection of the architect’s reflections; and a postscript by the author on the trends in Indian architecture. A detailed bibliography and catalogue of Doshi’s works complete the study.

Balkrishna Doshi: An Architecture for India is a valuable addition to the literature on architecture in developing countries.

Contents: Preface. 1. Introduction: Modern Architecture and Indian Tradition. 2. Search for Form: Projects and Buildings. 3. Selected Thoughts of the Architect. 4. Author’s Postscript: The Future of Indian Architecture. Biography.
