Corbusier's Chandigarh

Theo van Doesburg's typography and Le Corbusier's architectural designs for Chandigarh, India, strike a familiar resemblance. He pioneered the 'International Style'- a sort of language for architectural design of the modern era.
He believed in...
"the expression of volume rather than mass,
balance rather than preconceived symmetry and the
expulsion of applied ornament"
