The High Court of Le Corbusier [Chandigarh, India]

Chandigarh is one of the most adorable places I’ve been to India. My first meeting with the architecture of the famous Le Corbusier.

It might be a bit strange to see the High Court without colours, but I want to show the play of light and shade, volumes and voids.
