Musee de la Connaissance//WI 15

Course Description

This is a live project.

Chandigarh’s Capitol Complex, designed by Le Corbusier, has an empty site, originally designated for a Governor’s Palace, and later replaced, bowing to the expectations of democratic representation, by a Musée de la Connaissance, usually translated as a ‘Museum of Knowledge.’ This Musée will not be built by Chandigarh Administration, responding to preservationist pressures to ‘complete’ the Capitol.
