Balkrishna Doshi is one of India’s most influential architects, and was honored with the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2018.

The book Balkrishna Doshi: Architecture for the People presents the first comprehensive survey of the architect and his oeuvre in 20 years, providing insights into the inspiration behind Doshi’s work and background to his projects through essays by outstanding experts in the field. The richly illustrated survey is further supplemented by new photographs that document the impressive timeliness of the Indian master’s buildings.

Balkrishna Doshi (born 1927) began his architecture studies in 1947 before working with Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn in Chandigarh and Ahmedabad. He founded his own practice, Vastu Shilpa Consultants, in 1956, combining the lessons he learned from this earlier generation of architects with an understanding of Indian architectural traditions. In 2018, Doshi became the first-ever Indian winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize.
