Online international competition organizer archasm has launched its “Chandigarh Unbuilt: Completing the Capitol” ideas competition, which seeks designs to finalize and complement Le Corbusier’s Capitol Complex in Chandigarh, India.

Three buildings at the complex have been built according to Le Corbusier’s plans—the Secretariat, Assembly Hall, and High Court—but the fourth and final building, called the Museum of Knowledge, has yet to be conceptualized.

Archasm is looking for designs that will serve the purpose of a knowledge and connaissance museum in the context of the 21st century, while also considering the “importance of Le Corbusier’s version of modern architecture,” as well as the use of surrounding public space and its affect on the community.

Furthermore, proposals should “accommodate and facilitate intellectuals” and “provide a conducive live working environment” that will serve as a “space for ‘creation’ of knowledge rather than just ‘exhibition’ of knowledge.”

Registration for teams of up to three members begins on August 1, and is open until October 30. Submissions will be accepted from August 1 through October 31, and winners will be announced on November 18.  Three winners will be awarded with cash prizes and certificates.
