The house of Chandigarh's first Chief Architect, Pierre Jeanneret has been converted into a museum. The Swiss-born architect Pierre Jeanneret, a cousin of Le Corbusier, was instrumental in the design and development of the capital city of Chandigarh.
He remained in Chandigarh from February 1951 to August 1965, and designed most of the government housing, schools, colleges, shopping centres, Gandhi Bhawan, Panjab University, and other infrastructure besides supervising the implementation of Le Corbusier's designs of the Capitol Complex, Museum and Art Gallery, College of Art, City Centre, etc. Such was Jeanneret's love for the city that as per his 'will' his ashes were immersed in the Sukhna Lake of Chandigarh after he died in 1967.
