Bijoy Jain and his office Studio Mumbai have been awarded the fourteenth Alvar Aalto Medal conferred by the Alvar Aalto Foundation, Museum of Finnish Architecture (MFA), Finnish Architectural Society, Finnish Association of Architects (SAFA), and the City of Helsinki. The jury praised - what has been the essence of Bijoy's practice - his successful programmatic collaboration between architects and craftsmen, leading to the integration of local conditions in architectural production. Founded in 1969, the internationally renowned prize honors creative work in the field of architecture and is given out once in every three years. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the award was announced virtually on the Foundation's YouTube channel on March 16th 2021.
