Who designed the city Chandigarh?

Charles Eduar Giannere-Gri, who liked to call himself Le Corbusier (7 October 14 - 24 August 1945), was a Swiss-French architect, creator, bourgeois, writer and painter, and pioneer of a new genre, nowadays Called modern architecture or international style. He was born in Switzerland but became a French citizen after the age of 30.

He was a pioneer of modern higher education and was dedicated to creating better conditions in crowded cities. His work was rooted in five decades and his buildings were one in Central Europe, India, Russia and North and South America. He was also a city planner, painter, sculptor, writer, and modern furniture creator.
After World War II, Le Corbusier built a series of "Unite" (a residential unit of the city of Ojasvi) in some areas of France to implement their civilian plans on a smaller scale. The most famous among these was Uncle the Habitshaw of Marseille (19–1852). During the construction of Chandigarh, the effect of realizing Ojaswi Nagar in a big way was achieved in the 1950s. The city was the capital of Indian states called Punjab and Haryana. Lee Carbuzier was called in to implement Albert Meyer's plan. 
Not complying with the instructions of the doctors, on 26 August 1985, Le Corbusier went for a swim in the Mediterranean Sea in Roquebrune-Ca-Martín, France. His body was found by other swimmers and he was declared dead at 11 am. It is believed that he suffered a heart attack at the age of seventy-seven. He was cremated in the compound of the Louvre Palace on 1 September 1965 under the direction of writer and thinker André Malrau, who was the then French Minister of Culture.
The death of Le Corbusier had a profound impact in the cultural and political world. And Le Corbusier's greatest adversaries in the art world, such as Salvador Dali, also recognized his importance (Dali gave Pushpanjali). The then United States President, Lyndon B. Jansen, said: "His influence was global and his work has the consistency that few artists in history have been able to give."

Japanese TV channels broadcast the rites live at Tokyo's National Museum of Western Art, a unique tribute to the media at the time. His tomb is in the cemetery in Rokbrun-ca-Martín between Menton and Monaco in South France.
