About the walk

The house of Chandigarh's first chief architect, Pierre Jeanneret, has been converted into a museum. The Swiss-born architect, a cousin of Le Corbusier, was instrumental in the design and development of the capital city of Chandigarh. 

He resided in Chandigarh from February 1951 to August 1965, and designed most of the government housing, schools, colleges, shopping centres, the famous Gandhi Bhawan, Punjab University, and other infrastructure, besides supervising the implementation of Le Corbusier's designs of the Capitol Complex, Museum and Art Gallery, College of Art, City Centre, etc. Such was Jeanneret's love for the city that as per his will, his ashes were immersed in the Sukhna Lake of Chandigarh after he died in 1967.

During his stay in Chandigarh, he lived in a self-designed house in Sector 5, from December 1954 to August 1965. Le Corbusier also used to stay in this house during his visits to Chandigarh every year.

Walk with us to explore the unexplored story of the love of Jeanneret for Chandigarh and his classic masterpieces.

This guided tour is free.
