Balkrishna Doshi: Le Corbusier and India

Part of the Le Corbusier Season in Liverpool.

‘I learned from Le Corbusier to observe and react to climate, to tradition, to function, to structure, to economy, and to the landscape’.

Join eminent Indian architect and academic Balkrishna Doshi as he talks about the legacy and impact of Le Corbusier on Indian architecture of the immediate post-Independence period. His lecture will draw on his experience of working with Le Corbusier, firstly in Paris (1951–1954) and then in India to supervise projects in both Ahmedabad and Chandigarh.

Chaired by Jonathan Glancey, Architecture and Design Editor, The Guardian.
