The Indian city of Ghandigarh, designed as the new capital of Punjab, was Le Corbusier's only successful attempt to implement his controversial ideas concerning the ideal city. He drew up a masterplan which has determined the shape of the city to the present day. Designed to reflect the spirit of India's new found independence and powerful nationalist feeling, its design and subsequent development has been beset by controversy over the years. Chandigarh: Forty years after Le Corbusier is the result of a major in-depth study into contemporary life in the 'City Beautiful' and its relationship to Le Corbusier's architectural designs.
