This study examines the masterworks of Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn at Chandigarh and Dhaka in India not only with a thorough knowledge of western modernism, but also from the view of their western intrusions on the quite different cultural sensibilities of the Indian subcontinent. It is both a philosophical and aesthetic discourse. With photographs.
