This year’s top award in architecture goes to Balkrishna Doshi. This is the first time an Indian has won in the 40-year history of the award, known as the Pritzker Prize. Some compare the award to the Nobel Prize.
今年的最高建筑奖项颁给了柏克瑞斯·多西。这是自普利兹克奖设立40年来第一位获奖的印度人。这一奖项可以媲美诺贝尔奖。
Doshi has been an architect, city planner, and educator for 70 years. In contrast to other Pritzker winners, Doshi works almost only in his home country. In Ahmedabad, Doshi’s designs can be seen in the concrete Life Insurance Corporation Housing buildings to the flowing curves of the Amdavad ni Gufa art gallery.
多西已经从事了70年的建筑师、城市规划师和教育家。与其他普利兹克奖得主不同,多西几乎只在自己的祖国工作。在艾哈迈达巴德,多西的设计随处可见,或是人寿保险公司的混凝土建筑,或是Amdavad ni Gufa艺术画廊的流动线条。
But he is best known for designing low-cost housing. The Aranya project in Indore is home to more than 80,000 people, many of them poor. It includes a system of houses, courtyards, and pathways.
但他最广为人知的是设计低成本住宅。印多尔的阿亚尼亚项目是为8万多贫困人口打造的家园。它包括房屋、庭院和小路。
Doshi says the housing can change how home owners see their world. “Now, their life has been changed. They feel hopeful,” he said. “They have ownership of something.”
多西说,住房可以改变房主如何看待他们的世界。现在,他们的生活已经改变了,充满希望。”他说,“他们现在有了属于自己的东西。”
Doshi said his life’s work has been to help “the have-nots, the people who have nothing.”
多西说他一生的工作就是帮助那些“一无所有的穷人”。
He called the prize an honor both for himself and for India.
他称这一奖项对他本人和印度都是一种荣誉。
Doshi was born in 1927 in the city of Pune. He studied architecture in Mumbai and later worked under the architect known as Le Corbusier. Doshi was the first director of Ahmedabad’s School of Architecture and Planning, now known as CEPT University.
多西于1927年出生在浦那市。他在孟买学习建筑,后来在人们熟知的建筑师勒·柯布西耶门下学习。多西是艾哈迈达巴德大学建筑与规划学院的首任院长,这里现在被称为“建筑学院环境规划与技术中心”(CEPT university)。
He founded his own company in 1956, and lives and works in Ahmedabad.
1956年,他创立了自己的公司,在艾哈迈达巴德生活和工作。
The Hyatt Foundation, which sponsors the Pritzker Prize, called Doshi’s work “poetic and functional.”It noted that Doshi’s buildings both respect eastern culture and improve the quality of life in India.
赞助普利兹克奖的海亚特基金会称多西的作品“诗意且实用”。它指出,多西的建筑都尊重东方文化,提高了印度人民的生活质量。
“My work is the story of my life,” Doshi said in the award announcement. He said he was always moving forward, changing and searching, to look beyond architecture to look only at life.
“我的作品是我生活的写照,”多西在获奖感言中说。他说,他总是在前进、改变和寻找,越过建筑本身去观察生活。
Doshi will be given the $100,000 prize in May at a ceremony in Toronto, Canada.
多西将于5月在加拿大多伦多举行的颁奖典礼上获得10万美元的奖金。
