Space, Light and Order

Space, Light and Order 

"Space and light and order.
Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep."
(Le Corbusier - French Architect and city planner (born in Switzerland), 1887-1965)

This is a part othe main wall of the Secretariat building in Chandigarh, the capital of the Indian state of Punjab.
It is a long horizontal concrete slab form of 254 meters long and 42 meters high which was designed by the French (born Swiss) architect and urban planner, Le Corbusier, in the 1950s.
The building is composed of six eight storeyed blocks separated by expansion joints and bears close resemblance to the Marseilles apartment block.
The façade of the building gives a sculptural appearance with exposed concrete ramps, perforated with small square windows dominating the front and rear views.
The building façade is provided with projects for sun control.
