Between 1951 and 1957, Le Corbusier designed the Sanskar Kendra Museum, a museum in the Indian city of Ahmedabad. The spiralshaped building contains all the fundamentals of his architecture. For this project, in 1954 Le Corbu conceived a lighting system he named “Projecteur”, installed in the structure to maximise the lighting effect.
“Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity. It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms”.Discover
