Balkrishna Doshi: Universe of an Indian Architect (Sthapati)

LKE Ozolins Lecture 2008. Part of the International Dialogues: Architecture and Climate Change programme.

Today, with the huge increase in population and competitive global aspirations in India, sprawling unplanned growth is engulfing traditional towns and cities. Yet we have come so far due to our synergetic co-existence with nature.

‘Our fragmented short-term and crisis oriented solutions have made me experience this devastating paradox. As an architect, planner and academician I am pained to be part of the growing divide’.

Professor Balkrishna Doshi will talk about the complex issues facing India in the 21st Century and some of his alternative proposals to the rapid urban development taking place across the continent.

Chaired by Sunand Prasad, RIBA President.

Part of the International Dialogues programme.
