William J. R. Curtis con Balkrishna Doshi: An Architecture for India

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 Indias peasant villages and ancient buildings. At a time of rapid and unsettling urbanisation, Doshis 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 architects reflections; and a postscript by the author on the trends in Indian architecture. A detailed bibliography and catalogue of Doshis works complete the study. Balkrishna Doshi: An Architecture for Indiais a valuable addition to the literature on architecture in developing countries.
