CHANDIGARH WORKSHOP

LIMINAL CITY PROJECT

WORKSHOP PROPOSAL FOR CHANDIGARH UNIVERSITY.

A proposal is made to work on the limits of the planned city of Chandigarh, from the initial setting of Le Corbusier and the planning team, to the current developments in the city borders, from irregular developments to the conservation to the natural landscape and the consequences of a fast urban development, not always foreseen.
Therefore with the aim of studying the estate and transformation of the perimeter of the planned city, a workshop is proposed with the students of architecture of the Chandigarh University. The interest is on analyzing the interface conditions between the initial planned area and the changes and developments realized after, assessing the quality of the resulting space as well as the relation with the nature and the agriculture space. Thus in one hand the build space will be described. In the other hand, it will be described the use the people make of the resulting space.
