Chandigarh en riesgo

Chandigarh tecnne

La planificación urbana establecida por Le Corbusier para la ciudad de Chandigarh se encuentra seriamente amenazada por el crecimiento indiscriminado fuera de los límites del plan. La intención del gobierno es crear la “nueva Chandigarh” en el perímetro de la traza original y de este modo suscribir la construcción de un área comercial de gran altura y de varios nodos urbanos específicos, alterando la concepción urbana del diseño original.

El Plan de Le Corbusier para Chandigarh resultó una ciudad viable y una de las áreas urbanas más ponderadas de la India. Aun conviniendo la necesidad de una actualización que ponga en valor el plan original, concretar un desarrollo inorgánico en los límites de la ciudad establece una seria amenaza a la configuración integral planificada por Le Corbusier.

Otro de los aspectos que preocupa es la carencia de un mantenimiento adecuado a los edificios diseñados por Le Corbusier, que hace temer un ulterior estado irreversible. Varias intervenciones descuidadas atentan contra la correcta preservación de las obra en su estado original. Recientemente, una abertura provocada para colocar un equipo de aire acondicionado corto un mural realizado por Le Corbusier, situación que derivó en una actuación judicial.

Mientras UNESCO evalúa incorporar Chandigarh a la lista de sitios protegidos, la ciudad soporta las presiones de una mayor densificación en todas sus escalas. Las decisiones inapropiadas y la inacción palpable ponen en riesgo uno de los patrimonios urbano arquitectónicos más imponentes del siglo XX.

Urban planning established by Le Corbusier for Chandigarh city is seriously threatened by indiscriminate growth outside the limits of the plan. The government’s intention is to create the “New Chandigarh” on the perimeter of the original trace and thus underwrite the construction of a high-rise commercial area and several specific urban nodes, altering the original design urban design. The Plan of Le Corbusier for Chandigarh proved to be a viable city and one of the most valued urban areas of India. Even agreeing the need for an update that highlights the original plan, specify inorganic development in city limits establishes a serious threat to the whole setup planned by Le Corbusier. Another aspect of concern is the lack of proper maintenance of the buildings designed by Le Corbusier, which makes fear a further irreversible condition. Several neglected interventions undermine the proper preservation of the work in its original state. Recently, an opening caused to place an air conditioning cut a mural painted by Le Corbusier, a situation that led to legal action. While UNESCO is considering incorporating Chandigarh to the list of protected sites, the city supports the pressures of higher density at all scales. Inappropriate decisions and inaction palpable threatening one of the most imposing architectural urban heritage of the twentieth century.
