CORB'S INDIAN SUMMER

  • Comment
ASTRAGAL

Talking of the golden age of Modernism, Le Corbusier would be chuffed to bits to hear his Indian magnum opus - the concrete government complex at Chandigarh - is finally going to be finished ( ajplus 09.06.06). A triing 40 years after the last major construction work on the site, five structures never realised during Corb's lifetime are to be built, based on original sketches. Among them will be the Museum of Knowledge - the most significant scheme. However, Astragal fears Corb would not be so delighted by government plans for a new theme park, complete with a wax museum à la Madame Tussaud's, close to the existing complex. Sorry for having woken you, Corb?
