London’s Betts Project gallery is staging the UK’s first solo exhibition by Indian architect and founder of Studio Mumbai, Bijoy Jain. Comprising drawings and models, ‘Penumbra’ is conceived as a landscape, presented through “an exploration of material studies varying in scales, forms and techniques, all interspersed through intuition and intention, to allow the audience to immerse themselves in these distant landscapes where existence is not reactionary but elemental. These landscapes are both notional and real at the same time.”
Jain was born in Mumbai in 1965, received his M. Arch from Washington University in St Louis, USA, and worked with Richard Meier in Los Angeles and London before returning to India to found his practice in 1995. Known primarily for highly-crafted private houses, the studio takes responsibility for both the design and construction of its buildings.
Until 10 June 2017
