The Capitol Complex in Chandigarh – the Indian city that gave the architect a chance to test his Modernist theories on a grand scale. These Le Corbusier buildings added to UNESCO's World Heritage list

 

The Capitol Complex is made up of three concrete buildings and two monuments:

•the Palace of Assembly or Legislative Assembly

•the Secretariat

•the High Court

•the Open Hand sign, a symbol of the government of Chandigarh

•the Tower of Shadows

Le Corbusier built also a large and a small museum and two schools for art and architecture.

 

Chandigarh was one of India's first planned cities, and was Le Corbusier's largest project.

He was commissioned to design the masterplan in the early 1950s, after being approved by Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister. The city was to serve as the new independent Indian government's regional capital in Punjab, after the previous capital, Lahore, became part of Pakistan.

"The general feeling seems to be that Le Corbusier took on the task primarily as a way of justifying his theories," wrote the New Yorker in 1955. "He is almost 70, it is pointed out, and thus far most of those theories have been tried only on paper."

 

Arranged in a grid, the city's districts are connected by boulevards and are dotted with parks, public spaces and streets planted with trees. But it is the group of buildings that form the government's administration complex – known as the Capitol Complex – that have become symbolic of the architect's work in India. Le Corbusier saw the city like a human body, with these buildings functioning as its "head". As with many of his best-known projects, he collaborated with his cousin, architect and designer Pierre Jeanerret, to build and furnish the Capitol Complex as a complete work – creating everything from the facades down to the door handles.

 

The Secretariat is the largest of the structures, and houses the headquarters of both the Punjab and Haryana governments. The Secretariat houses the ministerial chambers and all ministerial agencies. The massive building is almost 250 metres long and comprises eight storeys of rough-cast concrete. The concrete was moulded into different forms to create complex geometry and patterns, which are highlighted in the paintwork. Ramps at either end allow for vertical circulation through every storey.

 

The Palace of Assembly was designed to have an open-plan interior, framed by a grid of reinforced concrete columns, offering a view of the nearby Himalayan mountains. The free facade allows it to host large sections of glazing covered in brise-soleils or sun-breaks. Originally the Palace was meant to house only one parliament, but nowadays is is used by both the parliaments of the Punjab and Haryana, so there is less open space left.

 

The High Court has a double roof that provides shade to the rest of the building and its columns and portico walls are painted in bright, contrasting colours. The upper roof cantilevers out over the lower roof and a gap between the two allows for air to circulate around the building.

After being back to Singapore , I noticed that the downtown skyline had changed a bit with new tall buildings erected in the past year or so. The rapid economic growth in Asia has somewhat slowed down but I would expect that it'll pick up soon. Singapore always have a masterplan of what the city/country will look like several years, decades in fact, in advance. And having seen what the country/city may look like I thought I would upload my old photos quickly before they become irrelevant.

Please, brother, let it be

Life on the other hand won't make us understand

We're all part of the masterplan
