Chandigarh, India, To Digitise Documents Of Le Corbusier

Posted by admin on Feb 4, 2009

Some invaluable documents related to legendary French architect Le Corbusier who planned Chandigarh in the 1950s can be seen online very soon, thanks to a move to digitize them.

The administration of the union territory of Chandigarh has decided to digitize all the old documents of Corbusier about the designing of the city and all the correspondence between the Indian government and other architects of that time.

Chandigarh is one of India’s most well-planned cities.

The Government Museum and Art Gallery here has started the work of digitizing over 50,000 documents available with them that pertain to the period from the late 1940s to the early 1950s.
