Bijoy Jain was born in 1965 in Mumbai and earned his Master in Architecture from Washington University. He worked in Los Angeles and London before returning to India in 1995, the year 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. As a collective, they are involved in the research and development of projects, using process and time as an integral part of their expression, with water, air, and light being the basis of all materiality in the synthesis of the work. Jain currently teaches at the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
