From the Publisher. This book shows the development of Jain’s personal mind-process as well as the collective dialogue through which each project evolves. Dialogues unfolded through study sketches made by both Bijoy Jain and the carpenters, as well photographs taken during journeys used as study and inspiration, showcasing a critical part of their design process. Studio Mumbai consists on a group of Indian architects and craftsmen, all resident artisans of Studio Mumbai, headed by Bijoy Jain, one of India’s foremost architects.
Studio Mumbai’s awards and honours include the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture from the Institute Français d’Architecture (2008), a Special Mention at the 12th Architecture Biennale (2010), the BSI Swiss Architectural Award (2012).
