The book revisits the Chandigarh and examines its built and social form in terms of today's perspectives, reviewing the changes in the city and to the lives of its inhabitants and its architecture. The idea is to have an internationally known group of scholars, practitioners and critics look at the city through different lenses; to creatively speculate about the city and the way that its original conception has stood up to the pressures of becoming a contemporary Indian city. The notion of reviewing a city's performance, especially a city of such widespread importance, after two generations of existence is not common, and can offer lessons for other cities.
