Chapter four of the film ‘Doshi’ addresses the primary way of thinking that architects deliberate on when they decide to design for their clients. Instead of thinking of it as an ordinary job, BV Doshi instigates the architect to treat themselves as representatives of a higher power who is building a temple for his client. Here, he references to the various housing complexes he has designed and the way people have adapted to them over a period of time.
“As architects, we must look at housing as a place where communities can continue to thrive over generations, because they have the house as a part of them, accommodating their life and changes.” - BV Doshi
