Synopsis: The study of modern urbanism has traditionally ascribed universal value to avant-garde ideas originating in Europe and North America, and seen developments in non-Western regions as derivations from those original models. Chandigarh Casablanca aims to decenter this dominant view and to contribute to a new geography of the modern city that is attentive to its entangled multiplicities and to the productive interactions that took place across cultures and borders. The book promotes a wider and more nuanced knowledge on the history of the modern city, and supports the notion of the capacity of modernity to modernize its own foundations. In these two cases, the pivotal encounter with non-Western contexts influenced the very centre of modernist architectural culture—more specifically the practice and thinking of Le Corbusier and Jeanneret, and the discourse and projects of Team 10, the group of architects that had emerged from the Congrès International de l?Architecture Moderne (CIAM) in 1953—and produced an innovation in its precepts, forces, and features.

 

About the Author: Tom Avermaete is professor of architecture at Delft Technical University in the Netherlands.

Maristella Casciato is associate director of research at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal.

Book Description Was haben die indische Stadt Chandigarh und die marokkanische Metropole Casablanca gemeinsam? Chandigarh, von Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Maxwell Fry und Jane B. Drew zusammen mit indischen Architekten gebaut, und das von Michel Ecochard und jungen marokkanischen sowie französischen Architekten realisierte Casablanca basieren auf einem europäisch-amerikanischen Verständnis von Avantgardearchitektur und Urbanismus. Beide Städte sind jedoch von ihren eigenen Kulturkreisen massgeblich geprägt und weiterentwickelt.Dieses Buch reflektiert mit zahlreichen Fotografien, Illustrationen, Plänen und Dokumenten die städtebauliche Realität in den beiden Metropolen. In ausführlichen Texten von Tom Avermaete und Maristella Casciato bietet das Buch eine erweiterte Sicht auf das Potenzial und den Charakter der modernen Stadt ? auch im Kontext nicht westlicher Kultur. Ergänzt durch zwei Fotoessays der französisch-marokkanischen Fotokünstlerin Yto Barrada und des japanischen Fotografen Takashi Homma regt es den Diskurs über die Verschmelzung der Kulturen und die Auswirkungen der Architektur auf das alltägliche Leben an.
