At age 90, Dr. Balkrishna Vithaldas (B.V.) Doshi's journey in architecture has spanned 70 years, from Indian independence in 1947, to he work with Le Corbusier, and the founding of his design studio, Vastu-Shilpa. The recipient of France's highest honor, the Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters in 2011 and the prestigious Padmi Shri award in India, Doshi, a major force in South Asian architecture pedagogy and practice, reflects on the Nehruvian modernization in India, and the changing role of technology, architecture, nature and the city. Doshi's voice remains vital in global design discourse and his explorations of meaning and connection in architecture and the role of energy, diversity, intuition, scale, the body and community in design, as well as his iconic contributions to architecture such as Arunya Housing, Sangath and Tangore Hall.
