“Our own epoch is determining, day by day, its own style.
Our eyes, unhappily, are unable yet to discern it.”
(Le Corbusier – French Architect and city planner (born in Switzerland), 1887-1965)

This was shot in Chandigarh, the capital of the Indian state of Punjab.
Commissioned by Nehru to reflect the new nation’s modern, progressive outlook, the city was designed by the French (born Swiss) architect and urban planner, Le Corbusier, in the 1950s.
It was the first planned city in India and is known internationally for its architecture and urban design.
Those geometrical structures made of brick and boulder stone masonry exposed in its rough form produce unfinished concrete surfaces which are the real style of an epoch.

This man was bringing the human touch to the wall and it was fun to play with him and those shapes.
