Rock Garden in Chandigarh – A Critical Evaluation of the Work of Nek Chand is original research thesis for which its author Dr. S S Bhatti, Former Principal, Chandigarh College of Architecture, was conferred the degree of Master of Architecture (M. Arch.) in 1983 by The University of Queensland, Australia. The book was formally released by VP Singh Badnore, Governor of Punjab-cum-Administrator, Union Territory at Punjab Raj Bhawan.
The book, published by White Falcon Publishing (https://www.self-publish.in/), is valuable one which records and analyses the work of a great, courageous and enormously energetic artist. It carries the measured drawings of the garden that he had prepared by the author over 18 months, besides an insightful illustrated analysis and critical evaluation of Nek Chand’s versatile creativity grounded in Punjab’s folk art, architecture, and construction methods.
