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 Park Books. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Casablanca and Chandigarh - Comment Les Architectes, Les Experts, Les Politiciens, Les Institutions Internationales Et Les Citoyens: Urbanisme moderne, geographies nouvelles, Maristella Casciato, Tom Avermaete, Chandigarh Casablanca documents two different but complementary urban realities that have played a fundamental role in the imagination, the definition, and the redefinition of the 20th-century modern city. Modern urbanism has traditionally ascribed universal value to avant-garde ideas originating in Europe and North America, and developments in non-Western regions as derived from those original models. This study shifts perspective in search of a new understanding of the modern city, taking into consideration the complex history of diverse cultures and changing borders. Focusing on a range of issues from the symbolic use of architecture to construct stunning monuments, to the creation of public spaces, housing design and social facilities, it features many images by two non-western photographers, Yto Barrada (French Morocco) and Takashi Homma (Japan), to construct a relevant definition of the modern city in a global sense.
