LE CORBUSIER: AN ATLAS OF MODERN LANDSCAPES by Jean-Louis Cohen

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but I have to say the Le Corbusier book has one of best covers in the store. Inside it’s filled with his most iconic masterpieces — the Legislative Assembly Building at Chandigarh in India built in 1950. I bought this book while visiting Chandigarh a few years ago. The Capitol Complex is the crowning glory of the modern city of Chandigarh, built at the behest of then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to stand as a symbol of the emergence of a modern, unfettered India. As with many of his best-known projects, Le Corbusier collaborated with his cousin, architect and designer Pierre Jeanerret, to build and furnish the project as a complete work – creating everything from the facades down to the door handles.
