Balkrishna Doshi : an architecture for India by William J. R Curtis( Book )

19 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. At a time of rapid and unsettling urbanization, Doshi's architecture reaffirms the links between community and nature. It charts his quest for a philosophy rooted in principles. 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 contemporary architecture in developing countries. The volume is a reprint of the originally published by Rizzoli International in 1988
