Bijoy Jain, born in 1965 in Mumbai, studied at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. He worked in Los Angeles and London before returning to India in 1995, the year when he founded Studio Mumbai. His work explores the boundaries between art, architecture and material. His studio operates as an interdisciplinary group of architects, engineers, master builders, artisans, technicians and artists across continents. As a collective, they are involved in the research and development of projects, using process and time as an integral part of its expression; water, air and light being the basis of all materiality in the synthesis of the work… man in nature – nature in man.
Bijoy taught as a visiting Professor at Yale University (New Haven, Connecticut) and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Copenhagen. He currently teaches at the Academia of Architettura in Mendrisio (Switzerland). His works have been exhibited in numerous galleries around the world and have been acquired in the collection of Canadian Centre for Architecture, MOMA San Francisco and The Pompidou Centre in Paris. He is a recipient of several International awards.
