15 March 2008 - Chandigarh, India - The National Assembly complex building in the Capitol complex, all designed by Le Corbusier. The Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier was commissioned by India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in 1952 to create a brand new capital from scratch. Due to strict building codes and zoning laws Chandigarh has grown within a planned structure unlike any other city in India. The result is India's most unchaotic city covered with modernist buildings, whether Government centres or public housing, a quarter of which is dedicated to open spaces and parks all designed by the visionary architect. It is also India's first city where smoking in public is illegal. Photo Credit: Luke DugglebyAdd to Lightbox Download
