Messy Urbanism

Vikramāditya Prakāsh

Hong Kong University Press

This work offers a reading of transnational collaborations in the creation of Chandigarh, India’s modernism’s iconic postcolonial city. The city was conceived in the 1950s as the transnational deployment of the “universal” expertise of international modernism as a model for a new urbanism in India. Fast forward five decades, another global moment stands poised to transform the greater Chandigarh region by spinning it into the global financial circuits of capital. This work describes the tangled flows and networks, the necessary mess, of transnational work, in the making and remaking of Chandigarh.

Keywords:   Transnational collaborations, Modernism, Le Corbusier, Chandigarh
