JAIN, Bijoy


Date: Monday 3 December 2012
Time: 18:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 85 mins

Work-Place is an environment created from an iterative process, in which ideas are explored through the production of large-scale mock-ups, models, material studies, sketches and drawings. Projects are developed through careful consideration of place and a practice that draws from traditional skills, local building techniques and materials, as well as an ingenuity that arises from limited resources. Inspired by real life conditions, these architectural studies allow practitioners to see the complex relationships within projects while also freely responding and adapting through the practice of making. This lecture will address the need for an architecture that emerges through collective dialogue, imagination, intimacy and modesty.

Bijoy Jain was born in Mumbai and received his MArch from Washington University in St Louis, USA, in 1990. He worked in Los Angeles and London from 1989–95, when he then returned to India to found his practice, Studio Mumbai – a human infrastructure of skilled craftsmen and architects who directly design and build their work. 

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
