One such site was found under Sector-17 in Chandigarh.  The layout of Chandigarh resembles Indus Valley Civilization town planning patterns.  The plan of new Chandigarh incorporated Le Corbusier’s principles of light, space and greenery.  The roads are designed and oriented in such a way that most of the time during the day, they are under shadow.

LE CORBUSIER CONCEIVED THE MASTER PLAN OF CHANDIGARH AS ANALOGOUS TO HUMAN BODY • Head (The Capitol Complex, Sector 1) • Heart (The City Centre Sector-17) • Lungs (The leisure valley, Innumerable open spaces and Sector greens) • The intellect (The Cultural and Educational institutions) • The circulatory system (The network of roads, the 7Vs) • The viscera (The Industrial Area)

In 1926 he shot a film of a housing estate at Pessac.  Le Corbusier disliked capitalism, and said that people's house size should depend on the size of their family, not how rich they were.  Le Corbusier "obsessively preserved every letter, drawing and photograph for posterity.  Before turning to architecture Le Corbusier was learning the trade of watchcase engraving.  His plan for a "radiant city" (Ville Radieuse) was based on a plan by Madrid-based urban planner Arturo Soriay Mata and was first proposed in 1930 for Moscow.
  17. 17. Le Corbusier and his architecture is featured on a Swiss francs banknote.
