Since the 1950s he has created more than 100 buildings for public and cultural institutions as well as housing estates and residences. Doshi achieved international acclaim for his visionary urban planning and housing projects and is known for his dedication in the field of education. His understanding of architecture is strongly influenced by his learnings from Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, with whom he had previously collaborated. Based on their modern design vocabularies, he developed his own style to meet local needs and Indian traditions.

In the spring 2019 the Vitra Design Museum will present the first European retrospective of Doshi’s work. A wealth of original material including models, plans, paintings, photos, films, and full-scale replicas will highlight his accomplishments in architecture, urban planning, design, and art.

The exhibition is a project by the Vitra Design Museum and the Wüstenrot Foundation in cooperation with the Vastushilpa Foundation.
