Book Description
Conceived soon after Independence , Chandigarh, the new capital for India`s Punjab Province became the focus of attention fro a variety of reasons for the peculiar circumstance of its birth; for being a conscious departure from existing patterns of traditional and colonial settlements; for the first realization of some of Le Corbusier`s urban precepts and especially, for being an unusual experiment in comprehensive civic design. The city today is valued universally as a landmark of modernism and a pacesetter for subsequent post independence development in India. in contrast to the undifferentiated sprawl of contemporary Indian towns, chandigarh is endowed within a specific identify by its picturesque setting, its well-ordered, orthogonal matrix, and above all its distinctive architectural vocabulary.
