Tune in this evening at 6:30 p.m. EST to watch 2018 Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Balkrishna Doshi deliver his "Paths Uncharted" lecture at the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. The lecture will take place at the school’s new home, which Boston-based firm NADAAA designed in collaboration with ERA Architects and Adamson & Associates.
A prolific and gifted architect, urban planner, and educator, Doshi was born in 1927, in Pune, India, and is the first Indian architect to win the prize, which has been called the profession's "highest honor." His 70-year career has been characterized by dignified designs that respect the people they serve and the contexts in which they exist. In his autobiography, Paths Uncharted, Doshi attributes the rich opportunities of his lifetime to the principles of Hinduism, among them "to find the universal through the personal microcosm."
