Nek Chand

India / Chandigarh
Innovation : Marketed / Broadcasted
The doyen of Shamengo pioneers spent 40 years of his life collecting numberless bits of construction waste from sites around the city.

Visiting Nek Chand we felt like we were in a remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Instead of the press agent we’d contacted by phone to arrange a meeting, we were greeted by a dwarf with a huge bunch of keys who opened the door to Nek Chand’s kingdom. We followed him to his boss’s office through a series of doors and passageways so low we felt like giants. 90-year old Nek was calmly waiting for us, reading a newspaper with a magnifying glass.
