A recent town, created by the Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier and whose industrial construction waste was used to create a magnificent place called Rock Garden.


Chandigarh is a new town built by Le Corbusier in the 1950s. The question is whether such a town does not produce an unpleasant contrast in India ... 

In addition to the city plans, Le Corbusier also left the Parliament Square. The Rock garden was built by Nek Chand with materials recovered from the work.


about the place, Chandigarh:

Chandigarh is a remarkable city in more ways than one. First it is the capital of two states, Punjab and Haryana.

Its other particularity resides in the fact that it is a city of recent construction, a little artificial and really differing from the classic cities in India. This city was built by Le Corbusier and respecting a geometric plan. This city corresponds to Pandit Jawharlal Nehru's dream of an ideal city and was completed in 1960.

Many buildings are the work of Le Corbusier.

One of the most remarkable places of the city is undoubtedly the park "Rock Garden" created by Nek Chand, inspector of the roads, with the materials of recovery of the construction of the city.
