About the walk

The Chandigarh Architecture Museum is one of three buildings that lie within the Sector 10 museum complex. The Architecture Museum, also known as the City Museum, has always been a fascinating site of Chandigarh.

The building that houses the Architecture Museum was designed by architect SD Sharma, who was trained directly under Corbusier and Jeanneret. The basic design of the building was based on a building created by Corbusier as an exhibition pavilion at Zurich, Switzerland. After Corbusier’s death, Sharma was entrusted with the task of designing the building for the City Museum and overseeing its creation. The Architecture Museum building had to be conceptualised and designed in a way that was congruous with the adjacent Art Museum. It is a fantastic example of architecture in modernism. 

The museum displays the original letters and correspondence between the administrators and architects who created Chandigarh’s blueprint. Original drawings and plans for the city are displayed along with photographs of the developing city in its various stages. 

 

This walk will take you through the enthralling historical journey of the Partition.

 

This guided tour is free.
