Le Corbusier's Villa Shodhan situated in Ahmedabad, India, has largely remained a reclusive exemplar of this architect's work since its construction in the 1950s. Although the residence has been widely referred to among architects, historians, and theorists, in reality it is rarely visited and only makes infrequent appearances in magazines due to the private nature of its owner. Ten years after the first edition was published, this book authored by architect and educator Manisha Shodhan Basu revisits the villa to once again discover its secrets. The visually rich tour encompasses original drawings and sketches, as well as large-format photographs by Jens Fredricksen, all narrated by informative texts.
