Palace of the Assembly - Chandigarh - Le Corbusier by Iwan Baan.jpg
In the 1950's after India gained independence from Britain, Le Corbusier was 
commissioned to design an entire city, from all the doorknobs in the high court to the 
stools and desks at the College if Architecture.  The capital of Punjab, Chandigarh is 
Le Corbusier's masterpiece and for several years, it's modernist buildings, 
monuments and fixtures have fallen into disrepair and become prey to the 
international art market.
