about

Chandigarh, India, is a unique achievement of architecture and design. Created in the 1950s according to a plan produced by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret and a team of international and Indian architects, it instantly became an icon of modernist urban design.
            This book brings the city home through more than three hundred stunning photographs by artists Werner Feiersinger. Inspired by Ernst Scheidegger’s book of photographs recording the city’s construction, Chandigarh 1956, Feiersinger assembled a vast pictorial record of the city’s famous architecture today. Far more than mere documentary photographs, Feiersinger’s images are works of art in themselves, capturing the vivid atmosphere of the city, the expressive sculptural qualities of the buildings, and the continuity of design and planning that makes the city such a striking whole.
            An essay by Austrian architect Andreas Vass puts the photos in context with Chandigarh’s history, its architectural qualities, and its possible future development. The resulting book is a stunning depiction of an unforgettable city.
 
Martin Feiersinger is the founder of the architectural firm Martn Feiersinger Architekt in Vienna. Werner Feiersinger is a sculptor and photographer based in Vienna.

Editorial Reviews

“Sixty years on, Feiersinger’s Chandigarh Redux constitutes a new chapter in the narrative. This collection of his photographs—in which he looks at the city’s architecture with the keen eye of a sculptor—casts the work of Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Jane B. Drew, and E. Maxwell Fry in a new light. Feiersinger captures the architecture’s solid, sculptural qualities, as well as Chandigarh’s vivid atmosphere and virtuosity.”
