Minimalist Islamabad

What struck me about Islamabad was the lack of people on the streets. The city was built in the sixties around the same time as Brasilia and it doesn’t at all resemble a bustling South Asian Capital. It’s divided into five major zones each sub-divided into four sectors with a market situated in the middle. In part because of it’s minimal space there is a calmness to the place that reminded me of an affluent southern California suburb.
