CHANDIGARH RETHINK: TRANSFORMING RURALITIES & EDGE(NESS) IN GLOBAL URBANITIES. Ed. by Manu P. Sobti. ORO Editions, Novato, 2017. 280 pp. with 460 ills. (376 col.). 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781939621368 In English.
Publisher's description: Chandigarh Rethink captures the rich, ongoing discourse on radically transforming urbanities within the Global South with specific reference to India's social, historical, economic and cultural repositioning. It examines urban edge figures and their rural grounds -- relevant not just to Chandigarh, but also to cities in general -- while suggesting narrative strategies via provocative design studio design work. These introspections are framed within themed contributions from a globally recognized group of scholars who represent the diverse disciplines of architecture, planning, urban design, landscape ecologies and the humanities. As a topical publication on global urbanities transforming a signature urban project, Chandigarh Rethink anticipates the Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures (blc) program and Sarup's efforts to uniquely aligning urban research, pedagogy and critical design practice towards examining global urbanities that continue to defy normative urban analysis. Beyond serving as an exemplar for globally aware architectural schools nationwide and beyond, it is also directed to serve as an instructive primer for design students and instructors examining global urban sites.
