Journey to Chandigarh

Dean Sakamoto, traveled to the Le Corbusier planned city of Chandigarh in Northern India. In addition to touring the Capitol complex (pictured) and Chandigarh’s public spaces, he gave a talk on tropical architecture at the Chandigarh College of Architecture. Now almost 60 years since its completion, Corb’s city of the future is functioning beautifully in the present day. A faculty collaboration grant from Yale University’s South Asian Studies Council funded Dean’s visit.
