Commissioned by the city of Chandigarh, India, Le Corbusier worked on the design, 
planning and construction of Chandigarh along with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and a 
team of international architects from 1950 until his death in 1965.  Corbusier's vision of 
Chandigarh is now imperiled by the removal of architectural artifacts, including furniture
lighting, anything and everything that can be taken. Many of these objects  have since 
been sold on the international art dealers auction houses. A manhole cover from 
Chandigarh sold at auction in Paris for $24,000 US last November. If this continues 
this beautiful architectural city will be let in ruin. 
Please show your support by signing this petition campaign to save 
Le Corbusier's Chandigarh:  http://www.gopetition.com/petition/43893.html
