Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh, India


Pierre Jeanneret's Demountable Bed (1955-56) is reproduced from <I>Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh, India</I>.

A landmark architectural book: Le Corbusier and Jeanneret's Chandigarh project documented in vintage and contemporary photographs

This beautiful, comprehensive volume documents Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret's massive Chandigarh project—the buildings and the furniture (today considered masterpieces of twentieth-century architecture and design), the plans, sketches and maquettes as well as reproducing both archival and contemporary photographs. In 1947, shortly after India gained independence, the Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru initiated a vast plan of modernization throughout the country, during which Chandigarh became the administrative capital of the Punjab province. Nehru commissioned Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret to construct this capital from scratch, with the sole instruction that they should be expressive and experimental and should not let themselves be hindered by tradition. Illustrated with photographs dating from the time period to the present, this book documents the architectural project and the production of the furniture, offering a definitive summary of this epic modernist enterprise. A further chapter is dedicated to the work of Lucien Hervé, the famous architectural photographer who depicted the city extensively.
The architect, urban planner, painter, writer, designer and theorist Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, was born in Switzerland in 1887. In 1922 Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret opened an architectural studio in Paris, inaugurating a partnership that would last until 1940. They began experimenting with furniture design after inviting the architect Charlotte Perriand to join the studio in 1928. After World War II, they sought efficient ways to house large numbers of people in response to the urban housing crisis. In the 1950s a unique opportunity to realize their concepts on a grand scale presented itself in the construction of Chandigarh. Before his death in 1965, Le Corbusier established the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris to look after and make available to scholars his library, architectural drawings, sketches and paintings.

Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh, India

Pierre Jeanneret's 1955-56 office chair is reproduced from Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh, India, a featured title in our pop up bookstore, ARTBOOK @ SWISS INSTITUTE, curated through November to support and enhance Fin de Siècle, architect Andreas Angelidakis' Ionesco-inspired exhibition of modern and contemporary chair design. "For Le Corbusier planning a new city meant a global approach, so the need to design the furniture for Chandigarh's public buildings was self-evident. The modernity, purity and consistency of the whole had to be perceptible. For this enormous project, he called in his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, who shared his convictions and had his full confidence." continue to blog
