Bijoy Jain founded Studio Mumbai in 1995, taking his home city's name for the practice. In the years since it has become internationally regarded for a portfolio focussed around a series of immaculately crafted private houses. Studio Mumbai comprises a small team, including a carpenter and a stonemason, which takes charge of both design and construction. Prior to setting up his own firm, Jain studied at Washington University, and worked under Richard Meier in London and Los Angeles. He is currently a visiting Professor of Architecture at Yale University. in 2016 Studio Mumbai designed the third MPavilion, an annual commission in Melbourne, Australia.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception in the Royal Geographical Society's gardens.
