pierre jeanneret's house, chandigarh

Someone asked me today if I have been
a bit obsessed with
Pierre Jeanneret and Chandigarh.
(Don't forget about Le Corbusier!)
The answer to that would be, 
I guess so.
I mean, I can't stop looking at this new(ish)
book,
So I guess that borders on obsessive.
It is a FANTASTIC book.
Perfect almost.
Seriously.
These photos are from a chapter on Pierre's
home in Chandigarh
while they were building the city.
He lived there from 1954-1965.
Super fantastic!
Enjoy....

There is a mix of traditional Indian furniture that
Pierre ordered, and of his own designs 
which were made by the same
craftsmen.
