Doshi.jpgIn a career spanning almost 70 years, the work of architect Balkrishna Doshi, who received the Pritzker Prize in 2018, has mirrored the evolution of contemporary Indian architecture. Doshi's first job under the French architect Le Corbusier (who designed the Indian city Chandigarh) had a profound impact on him but he has often sought to interpret Corbusier's modernism through local conditions of site, climate, and available technology.

The basic philosophy about “the making of a pleasant space” applies to all of architect Peter Bohlin’s work, especially his designs for early Apple stores. Interior Design Magazine’s Cindy Allen interviews Bohlin about the remarkable moments from his 50-year career designing architectural gems for the likes of the Girl Scouts, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates.
