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."
