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

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

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.
