Scope and Content

This project series documents LIG (low income group) housing in Sector 52 in Chandigarh from around the 1980s or 1990s. This project consisted of the design of typical three-storey housing clusters for the Chandigarh Housing Board. The typical design had four housing wings attached by a central, common courtyard. Balconies and courtyards on the building's exterior were arranged in an alternating pattern to give every resident a view of the sky.

The project is recorded through floor plans, elevations, sections and a perspective, likely dating from sometime in the 1980s or 1990s.
