Wrightwood 659 in Chicago is honored to be the first North American venue to present this important retrospective of the work of seminal Indian architect and 2018 Pritzker Prize winner Balkrishna Doshi.
This limited-run exhibition explores 23 key projects realized between 1958 and 2014, and introduces viewers to Doshi’s ideas of equitable and harmonic urban habitats. Bringing together full-scale models and a wealth of material from the architect’s studio and archive, the retrospective reveals Doshi’s lifelong devotion to the social good and sustainability, illuminating the ways in which he crosses traditional boundaries—including those between architecture and nature, modernism and tradition, and East and West.
Doshi remains one of the last living links to two of the great masters of Modernism—Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, with whom he worked at the start of his career. It is particularly fitting that his work be shown at Wrightwood 659, cradled within the remarkable design of Tadao Ando, who also draws inspiration from those two pioneers.
