Chandigarh. A city of India, designed by Le Corbusier
Högner discusses this North Indian city which was designed by Le Corbusier after Indian Independence. It measures 46 square sectors of 800 by 1200 meters, displaying Le Corbusier-typical architecture. Högner describes based on photographs the interaction of the inhabitants with this "alien" construction, a "hybrid" city, but it is still inhabitated by the population, it was not totally discarded or abandoned.
