Chandigarh and Le Corbusier - The Creation of a City in India 1950-65
This book addresses the question of time in Le Corbusier’s urban project of Chandigarh. It covers the entire period of the conception of the city, from 1951 to the death of Pierre Jeanneret in 1967. The book takes a detailed look at the link between the buildings as built and the archives of the Le Corbusier Foundation. An architect with a specialisation in heritage building, author Rémi Papillault aims to make this information accessible to all, especially to the inhabitants and leaders of Chandigarh, so that a detailed knowledge of the city’s design can be used to help preserve it.
