Through this chapter one experiences the journey of building the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, through Doshi’s own visions and perceptions. As Graham Morrison says in the film, “ … my consciousness about our visit to the management institute, was the breathtaking simplicity with which everything was achieved, I call it ‘architecture without adjectives’… it was humbling to have come across this building, that did everything, we could have wanted to do ourselves, decades before we haven’t really experienced it yet.”

“.. For me, it’s the search for the unknown, the search for what I have not known … it begins somewhere, ends somewhere, in the process I grow and the work grows, we grow together.” - BV Doshi
