abstract
Dr. Balkrishna Doshi is foremost among the modern Indian architects. An urban planner and educator for the past 70 years, Dr. Doshi is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and a Fellow of the Indian Institute of Architects. This autobiography captures Doshi's career from his childhood to his studies in Bombay and London, his work at Atelier Le Corbusier in Paris and collaboration with Louis I Kahn for IIM Ahmedabad. It recounts his meetings with the most remarkable persons in his own and allied fields, and his equally remarkable patrons, who include the likes of Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, Sheth Kasturbhai Lalbhai, and the story of his own family. Doshi's life--from the time he was born into a modest family in the by-lanes of Pune, and his struggles and tenacity to excel in his chosen fields--is a fascinating and inspiring story. Put together, for the first time, from the lifelong diaries and notes maintained by him, 'Paths Uncharted' is a personal recounting of this remarkable journey unfolding over more than 80 years and across all the continents.
