Balkrishna Doshi: Celebrating Habitat – The Real, the Virtual and the Imaginary

Source:Global Times Published: 2017/9/17 19:08:39

This will be the first retrospective exhibition in China for Balkrishna Doshi, India's highly acclaimed architect, urban planner, educator, academician and institution builder. The exhibition showcases more than thirty pieces of the Indian architect's notable works, including personal and public housing, community projects, educational institution, urban planning and furniture design. Represented in multiple scales, these architecture projects aim to construct a philosophical retrospection of Doshi's practice spanning 62 years, hoping to inspire young Chinese architects about the possibility of the application of modernist architecture in China and, at the same time, invite the audience to experience architecture as the celebration of habitat.
