In partnership with the Vitra Design Museum of Germany, Wrightwood 659 presents Balkrishna Doshi: Architecture for the People a retrospective of the 2018 Pritzker Prize laureate Balkrishna Doshi (born 1927, Pune, India). The renowned architect and urban planner is one of the few pioneers of modern architecture in his home country and the first Indian architect to receive the prestigious award. During over 60 years of practice, Doshi realized a wide range of projects, adopting principles of modern architecture and adapting them to local culture, traditions, resources, and nature. The exhibition presents significant projects realized between 1958 and 2014, ranging in scale from entire cities and town planning projects to academic campuses as well as cultural institutions and public administrative offices, from private residences to interiors.

Wrightwood 659’s presentation of Balkrishna Doshi: Architecture for the People is made possible by support from Alphawood Exhibitions.

The exhibition is a project by the Vitra Design Museum and the Wüstenrot Foundation in cooperation with the Vastushilpa Foundation.
