Summary Valued as a landmark of Modernism, Chandigarh is endowed with a specific identity by its picturesque setting, its well-ordered orthogonal matrix and its distinctive architectural vocabulary. Central to these elements is the work of Jeanneret, Fry and Drew, and their experimental construction is the focus of this book. Ninety types of designs are covered in exhaustive detail.
