location Chandigarh
function court building, government
contributed by bruno_vanbesien

The High Court houses 9 courts of law and the required administrative and support units - besides the macro-scale architecture, Le Corbusier also undertook the design of furniture, light fittings, and 9 large tapestries, one for each court. The distinctively Corbusian brise-soleil shields the glazed fašade from the harsh Indian sun, an attempt to negotiate the climate issue with passive mechanisms to avoid a reliance on mechanical systems. Today, the interior court rooms are completely air conditioned.
