Few men in history have altered the course of architecture as dramatically as Le Corbusier. His prodigious output, his extensive writings, the very quality of his genius cast him upon a lonely eminence, so that he always remained something of an enigma. It was only to a handful of colleagues that Le Corbusier showed his human side – sensitive, capable of warm and lasting friendships, deeply concerned about the condition of man. In Le Corbusier’s intimate circle was Balkrishna V. Doshi, himself a distinguished architect, who worked with the master over a period of some seven years – first in Paris, later in Chandigarh and Ahmedabad. This association provided a rare insight into the mind of Le Corbusier. Looking back over the years, Doshi stresses Le Corbusier’s remarkable architectural agility, his endless capacity for improvisation and innovation.
