Scope and content:
Le dossier documente le projet non réalisé de Le Corbusier pour le Musée de la Connaissance, dans le secteur 1 à Chandigarh, Inde. Aussi connu sous le nom de Musée à croissance illimitée, ce projet avait été imaginé dès les années 1930 par Le Corbusier, en collaboration avec Pierre Jeanneret, avant qu'une version ne soit projetée pour Chandigarh. Un plan similaire sera également utilisé dans d'autres designs de musées par Le Corbusier.

Le matériel dans ce dossier a été produit entre 1959 et 1964. Le dossier contient des dessins et des reprographies de dessin d'exécution et de dessin de présentation, ainsi qu'un album contenant des plans et des coupes du Musée. Le dossier comprend aussi des documents textuels, dont de la correspondance et un texte par Le Corbusier au sujet de son projet de Musée.

File documents Le Corbusier's unrealized project for the Museum of Knowledge in sector 1 in Chandigarh, India. Also known as the Museum of Unlimited Growth, this project had been imagined as early as the 1930s by Le Corbusier, in collaboration with Pierre Jeanneret, before a version was planned for Chandigarh. A similar plan will also be used in later museum designs by Le Corbusier.

Material in this file was produced between 1959 and 1964. The file contains drawings and reprographic copies of working drawing and presentation drawing, and an album containing plans and sections for the Museum. The file also contains textual records, including correspondence and a text by Le Corbusier about his Museum's project.
