									1. Name:      Balkrishna Vithaldas Doshi,
2. Born:              1927,
3. studied:   J J school of arts in bombay
           "I learned from Le Corbusier to
1.    observe and react to climate,
2.    to tradition,
3.   to function,
4.    to structure,
5.    to economy,
6.   and to the landscape.            To an extent, I also
     understand how to build buildings and create spaces and
     forms. However, I have in the last two decades, gradually
     discovered that the buildings that I have designed seems
     somewhat foreign; they do not appear to have their roots in
     the soil. With the experience of my work over the years and
     my own observation, I am trying to understand a little
     about my people,
7.   their traditions,
8.   and social customs,
9.   and their philosophy of life."

*The Indian Institute of Management at Bangalore is one of four
Institutes commissioned by government soon after independence.

*Louis Kahn’s IIM Ahmedabad,kahn built
  an envelope around a unit
  and pierced it with wide openings to
   provide a ventilated insulating layer.

*Doshi adopted this technique

                                       Louis Kahn’s IIM Ahmedabad
Balkrishna doshi’s IIM Banglore,
which has been described as a
“critique” of
Kahn’s Ahmedabad Institute,
deviates from some basic
principles and fulfills
Others unrealized in the earlier
project in significant ways.

-the main grouping of the
campus, which contains adam
block,classroom, labs,
 and library is arranged as a
datum in a ladder like plan
 along a longitudinal axis.

-in the main campus plan the       Master plan
outdoor rooms are not clearly
defined as they are
 in Ahmedabad.
-What is most striking, however ,are the corridors,more appropriately
 as covered pedestrian streets,that join the diverse elements

-These were designed according to Doshi,
-To provide innumerable vistas or focal points for generating a
dialogue with oneself.
-These corridors are sometimes open, sometimes with pergolas and
sometimes topped
 With a glazed sunlight.
-In many places the width of the corridors were increased to
 allow for casual eating and interaction to take place.
*Corridors with sufficient
 Space for casual sitting
 Eating and a good
 Interaction space.
The main street , at the centre of the plan , zig –zags from top to
bottom break the asymmetrical,
Irregular grid. zoned housing is arranged in cluster around the main
service cores.

  factor in the design,he set out

*It’s a mixed work by architect BV Doshi and indian artist MF
 *It’s a art gallery for exhibition of artist’s work.
*Doshi took stupa as a concept.
*The difference between stupa and the Gufa is the 25-
millimetre thin ferrocement
 shell that has been used as the structure of Doshi’s museum
,as well as the sloping
 Columns that has been used internally.
