Corbusier's Tower of Shadows, Chandigarh, India, with textures.This is a model of Le Corbusiers Tower of Shadows, Chandigarh, India.
'Just beyond the solar monument is the tower of shadows a demonstration of Corbusier's theories of sun control, consisting of a series of platforms oriented to the Cardinal points and containing sun breakers on three sides (except north).
This concrete structure is a culmination of the in depth studies of Corbusier on the path of the sun and ways to control its penetration in to the built up space.'
