We tend to explore and unearth the various characteristics of unbuilt Chandigarh through this competition, that were conceived by Le Corbusier but remained confined to documents, pictures and archives and try to contemplate the possibilities of turning all these visions into a reality for the city, both in their original context and present day scenarios and changes. This competition would discuss the relevance and importance of modernistic principles in a contemporary era where the needs of the city have changed drastically and need to be addressed by a more creative approach rather than a conservative one.
