you're a shill for additional we see what it's like to tie the cypriots not. well it's not easy to sum up a career that spans 6 decades spot with its retrospective on balakrishna dossier the 1st ever outside of asia the vittra design museum brings his vast range of work into context for western visitors as an architect and urban planner dr was strongly influenced by water masters like local news here but always stayed very true to his indian roots or such that his work never loses sight of the bigger picture nor of the people it's meant to serve. new spaces unique forms expansive horizons with his architecture here on display at the beach design museum krishna da she has always push boundaries. really.
a question of form and formlessness. the form should not be finite but should be amorphous soledad be experience with. people. in the 1990 s. the indian architect designed the i am divide nikki for art gallery as an underground cave she wanted to build something magical something with cosmic significance something still rooted in the local culture even more important was the building's location its site of the campus of the university where she founded the school of architecture. is ready to stick their good next review focused. we lose interest most of the word got around us so this school for. science has fruits of st. he built a school in his mid thirties in the indian city of a made
a bad surrounded by nature with spacious rooms and large courtyards she encourages unlimited curiosity in his students he practices this in his own work by asking the question of how people can develop further with the help of architecture. she grew up in a large family with cramped shared living spaces as a teenager he vowed to devote his life to helping india's poor. in 1951 she left for paris he was 24 had no money and didn't speak a word of french he wanted to learn from the. architect built many projects in india assisted by. she was not just his student he developed his own style linking western modernism with indian traditions the individual's freedom stands at the center of power krishna da she's work he lives this creator himself saying if
you have nothing to lose you have nothing to fear. and my colleague melissa holroyd from culture has joined me to tell us more about krishna. absolutely amazing to me this man is 91 years old and yet it's also recent years that he's become a big name in architecture. yeah it is interesting because he worked with some of the greats worked on some very big projects with. and and yeah with a number of other very big architects. it was an it was only last year when he won the pritzker prize that he was sort of trust into the limelight and i think before that he was little known outside of not little known but he wasn't that well known outside of india. it's. obviously wasn't taking part in this whole whole sexy r. kapoor crowd but it seems he's got a much more humble approach that struck me is not famous for for designing airports
or you know skyscrapers or things like that he's famous for designing houses and places for people to live in on the grounds is stuff isn't gimmicky and it doesn't follow he doesn't follow trends that much he does change over time perhaps that's a little bit why he's not he wasn't so well known and he's always sort of very much taking this long term view and it was very astute to cultural needs and and location yeah it was inspired by manhattan again d. in terms of his housing some of his housing ideas. and you know so it was also the sort of idea that the residents needs might change over time. it's interesting that it's injury much his own life obviously dictated the development of his style can you tell us a little bit more about that and him as a man for his own life he grew up in
a very large family with sort of restricted living space and so every each room had to be used for whatever the day called for so one day it's the dining room one day it's the sleeping quarters and so. he's architecture is very fluid what we see of his work he works a lot with inside indoor outdoor spaces and these images that we just saw from the veteran. z.m. were. were a model of his most famous one of his most famous designs which was the iran your housing and that was that's very interesting so people there can like just adjust the houses to their own needs whether they have more children whether they get more money you know whatever the needs might be so very adaptable stuff you know on that note you know architecture for the people is the name of this exhibition just quickly tell us a little bit more about it well it's the veteran museum like i said in vile brine in southern germany it focuses on impacts in terms of indian design and his work
but also looks at the social context behind his work his very humanist philosophy and his indian roots combined with his indian education as well as his western european education so very much in tune also with the bow holes philosophy that was informing the work of his mentors like to record. and i very much like that idea of space being a living thing and that's a very very play for the general architecture for the people on until september 8th melissa hall right thank you very much for bringing us all that background information. moving even farther east in asia fans of asian food will be familiar with hot pot as the chinese equivalent more last 2 are fondue so it's a simmering pot of soup stock that comes straight to your table and in it you can cook everything from slices of meat vegetables tofu and of course seafood and in the taiwanese capital taipei they've made an arse of it so at the risk of getting a bit hungry let's join megumi for a tasty but. there's
