Le Corbusier Meets Nehru

Nehru and Le Corbusier.

Last weekend, Sonnabend Gallery opened its doors to an exhibition of work by the architects Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret.

Organized by Galerie Patrick Seguin, the show traces their modernization project in India, which began shortly after independence.

Nehru wanted Le Corbusier to be “expressive, experimental and not to let himself be confined to tradition.”

Did it work? Judge for yourself: The exhibition runs through March 18th.
