Wrightwood 659 reopens with Balkrishna Doshi: Architecture for the People
12:00pm - 9:00pm

One of the primary themes in this exhibition is Dr. Doshi's ongoing dedication to architecture as a civic practice. People's everyday lives are at the heart of Doshi's work, with streets and paths, public spaces and buildings, private homes, office and commercial buildings, historic monuments, temples and cultural institutions - but most of all people and the activities they engage in - woven into a functional whole. To improve the quality of urban life, Doshi has adapted traditional principles, such as densely inhabited structures, walkable distances, and the multifunctional use of available space to a contemporary urban context. Doshi's significant contribution to public buildings and large-scale city-planning projects is a core theme of the exhibition. An early example is the Institute of Indology in Ahmedabad (1957-1962; modernized in 2011-2012), built to house ancient manuscripts, a research center, and a museum. It was one of the first projects Doshi designed following his work with Le Corbusier. While the influence of his mentor is clear, the building also draws on Doshi's understanding of regional architectural influences and his interest in people, their traditions, social customs and lives.

Please check with the event organizers to see if the event is still scheduled or cancelled.
