Pierre Jeanneret

Pierre Jeanneret

The Gandhi Bhawan is a major landmark of the city of Chandigarh. Designed by the architect Jeanneret, a cousin of Le Corbusier it is an auditorium hall that sits in the middle of a pond of water. A mural by the architect greets visitors at the entry. The words "Truth is God" are written at the entrance. Today it also houses an substantial collection of books on Gandhi.

Pierre Jeanneret was a Swiss architect who collaborated with his more famous cousin Charles Edouard Jeanneret (who assumed the pseudonym Le Corbusier) for about twenty years. Their working relationship ended when Pierre joined the French Resistance and Le Corbusier did not. However, they collaborated once again and famously after the War, on the plan and architecture for the planned city of Chandigarh in India.
