Le Corbusier, the pseudonym of Charles-Édouard Jeanneret was a Swiss architect, urban designer, painter, writer, and one of the pioneers of modernist architecture in the early 20th century. Although Le Corbusier was not the first architect/urban designer, Albert Mayer and Matthew Nowicki had that honor; ultimately Le Cobusier’s name would become synonymous with that of Chandigarh.
Le Corbusier ultimately retained many seminal ideas of Mayer and Nowicki; however, Le Corbusier reorganized the plan, to include a series of rectangular sectors which were self-sufficient units within the larger framework of Chandigarh. This post will focus on the sector containing the High Court, Assembly, Secretariat, the Museum and Art Gallery, School of Art and the Lake Club with drawings and sketches by Le Corbusier.
