After generously donating an archive of over 6000 drawings and 150 projects, architect sat down with RIBA President to discuss his life and work as one of “India’s greatest architects.” The short interview touches on a wide range of topics, from the inspiration behind some of his greatest projects to advice for future architecture students.

“The thing about architecture is that you cannot teach it. You can learn it, but you cannot teach it. And a good school is a school which makes you passionate about architecture and that teaches you how to ask questions. [...] If you know how to ask the right questions, you will develop your own philosophy and your own visual vocabulary.”

    he is a great architect. surprising that he doesn’t have a pritzker prize.

      The only tangible reason i can find of his NOT getting a Pritzker is that Pritzker focus has changed from REAL world design issues to PROJECTED world design issues.
