The Le Corbusier Museum and Research Centre is located in Chandigarh, India. The Indian city of Chandigarh shall soon have its own museum and research centre dedicated to the works of Le Corbusier, the architect who conceptualised and designed the city in the 1950’s. The building, which will be the sixth of its kind in the world, and the second in India, (after the centre at Ahmadabad in the state of Gujarat), is set to be inaugurated in October 2008. The centre aims to preserve, interpret, research and display Corbusier’s works.
Asked about the location of the museum, Vidya Nand Singh, consultant and nodal officer of the project, revealed at a recently held press conference in Chandigarh that the Chandigarh administration shall “set up the ‘Le Corbusier museum and research centre’ at the old architect building in Sector 19, which was the office of the city’s architect.
