In partnership with the Vitra Design Museum of Germany, Wrightwood 659 presents Balkrishna Doshi: Architecture for the People a retrospective of the 2018 Pritzker Prize laureate Balkrishna Doshi (born 1927, Pune, India). The renowned architect and urban planner is one of the few pioneers of modern architecture in his home country and the first Indian architect to receive the prestigious award. Over the course of his 60 years of practice, Doshi realised a wide range of projects – adopting principles of modern architecture and adapting them to local culture, traditions, resources, and nature. The exhibition presents significant projects realised between 1958 and 2014, ranging in scale from entire cities and town planning projects to academic campuses, cultural institutions, public administrative offices,  private residences to interiors. The exhibition was held from September 10 2020 until December 12 2020.
