The international idea competition ‘CHANDIGARH UNBUILT: Completing the Capitol’ hosted by archasm, India in 1st August 2015, this was an open International Competition to generate progressive design ideas from students , architects, engineers, designers, artists and philosophers all over the world. The competition was organized for education purpose only.
As designed by Le Corbusier, the Capitol Complex is currently not completed, three buildings at the complex have been built according to Le Corbusier’s plans—the Secretariat, Assembly Hall, and High Court—but the fourth and final building, called the Museum of Knowledge(MoK), has yet to be conceptualized. Archasm was looking for designs that will serve the purpose of a knowledge and connaissance museum in the context of the 21st century, while also considering the “importance of Le Corbusier’s version of modern architecture,” as well as the use of surrounding public space and its affect on the community.

Inspired from the unique poetics of machine and metaphor developed by Le Corbusier, the idea was to conceptualize the project ‘Museum of Knowledge ‘ metaphorically following Cobusier’s notion of visual and spatial analogy.
Knowledge is a journey of life which starts with curiosity and gained by the experience. Curiosity begins at childhood; a child wants to know his world, wants to explore the surroundings. Metaphorically this phenomena can be compared with fluidity, layering, colorfulness in spatial terms.
Whereas Experience refers to the act or process of gaining knowledge, maturity and skills through direct practical contact or observation. Knowledge acquired by experience is factual as it is based on past event. in other words it stands firm foundation of factual evidence. So the possible connotation of Experience can be Boldness and solidity in Architectural language.
