Indian architect Balkrishna Doshi has been awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Royal Gold Medal for 2022.


Awarded annually by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and personally approved by the Queen, the Royal Gold Medal celebrates those who have shaped the ‘advancement of architecture’.


Doshi was selected in recognition of his 70-year career and his influence on the direction of architecture in India….


Ninety-four-year-old Doshi, who was the first Indian architect to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2018, has a portfolio of more than 100 built projects that includes collaborations with both Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn…..


The committee’s citation said that through his teaching and practice, Doshi ‘has helped define the direction of architecture in India and much of the adjacent regions’.
