Dayanita Singh: Book Release

Portrait of a House, Conversations with BV Doshi

Portrait of a House, Conversations with BV Doshi by Dayanita Singh. Hardcover, 1st Edition, 2021. English, 152 pages.

Released to coincide with the 94th birthday of celebrated architect Balkrishna Doshi, Dyanita Singh's new book Portrait of a House: Conversations with BV Doshi consists of a series of conversations between Doshi and Singh held throughout lockdown.

Taking the form of a “sawal-jawab” or question/answer and prompted by photographs taken by Singh in Doshi’s home (Kamala House), the book reveals the many relationships between architecture, photography and light; family relations, stories and space.

You can watch Singh and Doshi in conversation on our IGTV and read more about the book in articles written by Soumya Mukerji for Stir World, Kriti Saraswat-Satpathy for Architectural Digest India and Avantika Shankar for Vogue.

The book is published by Spontaneous Books, designed by Rukminee Guha Thakurta and printed by Naveen Printers. It is available to purchase through Gallery White, Sangath and Offset Projects.
