Revised joint edition of numbers 157 and 200 dedicated to Studio Mumbai. It encompasses the projects developed by the architect of Indian origin from 2003 to 2020.
Bijoy Jain was born in Mumbai in 1965 and in 1990 he obtained a Master of Architecture degree from Washington University in St. Louis, USA. He worked in Los Angeles and London between 1989 and 1995, before returning to India in 1995 to found his own office.
Studio mumbai works with an interdisciplinary group of people between India, Japan and Europe. Architects, engineers, master builders, skilled craftsmen, technicians, and draftsmen are collectively involved in the research and development of office work. This group shares an environment created from an iterative process, where ideas are explored through the production of large-scale prototypes, models, material studies, sketches and drawings. Projects are developed through careful consideration of site and practice based on local skills, construction techniques, materials, and ingenuity derived from limited resources. The essence of the work lies in the relationship between man in nature and nature in man.
