Bijoy Jain

Biography

Bijoy Jain is an Indian architect born in 1965. He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 1990, and is a visiting professor at Yale University. Between 1989 and 1994, Bijoy Jain worked for Richard Meier in Los Angeles and London. In 1995, he returned to Bombay to start his own agency, Studio Mumbai. The Mumbai Studio team has a diverse skill base that includes both architects and craftsmen. It functions differently from most architectural agencies as it handles all aspects of building creation, from design to construction, and these are a result of a collective dialogue between architects and craftsmen where each shares their particular fields of expertise. His work is present in many exhibition venues such as the Alvar Aalto Symposium, the Architectural League of New York and the Canadian Center for Architecture. He was also a finalist in the Agha Khan Awards in 2010.
