Chandigarh, the iconic 'modern' city in India associated with Le Corbusier, arguably the most eminent architect of the 20th century became an important model of modern city planning and architecture.
This monograph is a collection of essays by international scholars including Kenneth Frampton, Raj Rewal, Charles Jencks, Balkrishna Doshi, Rodrigo Perez De Arce, Vikram Prakash, Marius Reynolds and Madhu Sarin. Housing in the City, Sandhya's contributing essay evaluates several aspects of the urban housing designed by European and Indian architects. It draws on Sandhya's undergraduate thesis "A critical appraisal of housing in Chandigarh", the first publication to evaluate housing types, both public and private, built during the first decades of the new city. Edited by Hasan-Uddin Khan with Julian Beinart and Charles Correa, the book's publication marked sixty years after this modern city was established in the mid-1950's.
