Doshi wins Pritzker Prize

AFP

AHMEDABAD: Trailblazing Indian architect Balkrishna Doshi vowed yesterday to use his award, considered architecture’s Nobel equivalent, to escalate his campaign for proper housing for the poor as the country battles a massive shortage of homes, reports AFP. The 90-year-old told AFP he had no plans of slowing down as he received well-wishers at his home in the western city of Ahmedabad, a day after becoming India’s first winner of the prestigious Pritzker Prize. “If I as an architect am not able to do something for my people and provide them with what they need, then I should say my job is incomplete,” said the pioneer of low-cost housing.
