Le Corbusier – Acrobat of Architecture, B.V.Doshi interviewed by Carmen Kagal

From the book – Vistara – The Architecture of India
Few men in history have altered the course of architecture as dramatically as Le Corbusier. His prodigious output, his extensive writings, the very quality of his genius cast him upon a lonely eminence, so that he always remained something of an enigma. It was only to a handful of colleagues that Le Corbusier showed his human side – sensitive, capable of warm and lasting friendships, deeply concerned about the condition of man. In Le Corbusier’s intimate circle was Balkrishna V. Doshi, himself a distinguished architect, who worked with the master over a period of some seven years – first in Paris, later in Chandigarh and Ahmedabad. This association provided a rare insight into the mind of Le Corbusier. Looking back over the years, Doshi stresses Le Corbusier’s remarkable architectural agility, his endless capacity for improvisation and innovation.
