Preamble, Inception and Brief History
Chandigarh –the largest and the most daring experiment in modern urbanism has become the Mecca for architects from all over the world. Chandigarh’s pre-eminence as an ‘International City‘ rests largely on the world renowned architect Le Corbusier; who developed its master plan in 1951, based on his urban planning theories and his masterly architectural works.
What is not so well known is the fact that the 20th century's greatest architect also succeeded in getting Chandigarh College of Architecture (CCA) established as an integral part of the great Chandigarh Experiment. His conviction was that the creation of built environment, however brilliant and consequential, cannot be fully grasped- much less perpetuated – if the principles regulating its concept are not properly understood through study of various components of the city in use.
CCA aims at developing its unique inherent potential and location and to inspire, support, sustain and continue academic programs whereby professionals –trained in the tradition of modern urbanism ushered in by the incomparable master- could extend the frontiers of Creativity in the pursuit of serving the Family of Man -- efficiently, comprehensively, beautifully. The Chandigarh College of Architecture (CCA) was established on 7th August 1961 and was set up as a part of the great “Chandigarh Experiment” to impart education in Architecture.
Ever since the first batch of B.ARCH degree holders left its portals , CCA has produced about 1000 architects . Engaged in various fields of specialized endeavor in government establishments and semi government organizations , as well as private practice they have contributed significantly to the promotion and development of profession of architecture both in India and abroad . Several among them have achieved international, national and regional eminence thereby doing their alma-mater proud . Some of them have also made their mark in other fields such as management, computers, journalism etc
