Kraft der Utopie - Leben mit Le Corbusier in Chandigarh
Thomas Karrer, Karin Bucher, Switzerland, 2023o
70 years ago, architect Le Corbusier completed his life's work with the Indian planned city of Chandigarh. With all its light and dark sides, the city of millions is considered a controversial synthesis of the arts. The documentary accompanies four Indian cultural workers from Chandigarh and reflects with them on this utopia of modernity. Le Corbusier's concept offered the inhabitants a new kind of living space in which they could develop in contrast to the Western capitalist-influenced architecture.
