At the Canadian Centre for Architecture is an exhibition of two non-western cities that, in the midst of decolonization, encountered a different modernism. Co-curators Maristella Casciato and Tom Avermaete share how the modern plans for Casablanca and Chandigarh were a negotiation amongst many. Who was negotiating? The show’s title, How architects, experts, politicians, international agencies and citizens negotiate modern planning: Casablanca Chandigarh reveals all.
