The Open Hand Monument, Chandigarh

by Vivek Yadav
/ Posted: 1 year ago

5 attachments

The Open Hand Monument is a symbolic structure located in the Indian Union Territory of Chandigarh. Designed by the renowned architect Le Corbusier, it is the emblem of the Government of Chandigarh and symbolizes "the hand to give and the hand to take, peace and prosperity, and the unity of mankind". The largest example of Le Corbusier's many Open Hand sculptures and was designed to rotate in the wind. Growing up in Chandigarh, I always have seen a flying bird in The Open Hand, soaring high above the Shivalik Mountain Range, on whose footsteps 'City Beautiful", Chandigarh is located. It always symbolized freedom to me, freedom to be who I am, what I can do. With this design, I have tried to relive my childhood. Reference Image:

  1. Hey Vivek!

    Great to have you on board as a Pro at Briefbox and to see your first submission! Awesome work!!!

    Looking at the iconic landmark, I love the colourful, simplistic style that you've gone for here. Especially as you've chosen something which is personal to you and you feel that you have a connection too. I think that this is always a great place to start when designing for a personal project.

    Overall, I'm really liking the modern colours and bold design. Though, I think this could be developed a little more by refining your lines, perhaps adding a little more detail to the mountains in the background and testing out some subtle shadows.

    I think you could also add some interest to the overall design by exploring some current and exciting typefaces. I think this could really help to bring out the design, helping it to look modern, clean and professional.

    Keep going with it Vivek!! Overall, this design looks great and I'm loving the mock up's you've already created for the design. Just work on a few tweaks here to make the most of your design! Looking forwards to seeing the next stage. Remember if you do chose to work on this design please to upload it as a separate submission so we can check out your progress!
