A fascinating chapter in modernist architecture and city planning took place in India under the guidance of German architect Otto Koenigsberger and other polymath figures such as Le Corbusier, Ernst May, Hermann Jansen, Fritz Schumacher, Theodor Fischer, Heinrich Tessenow, Ebenezer Howard, Patrick Geddes and Raymond Unwin. The principal ideas introduced by these figures at the moment of India’s independence and Partition were based on European models such as the garden city.
