The three-day long celebrations of the 125th birth anniversary of Swiss-French master architect,Le Corbusier,being organised by the UT Administration continued in Government College of Architecture,Sector 12 on Saturday with a workshop on ‘Theater and Architecture’ by TV actor Anup Soni.

While talking to students during the workshop,Soni who is currently a part of Crime Patrol aired on Sony said,“Theater and architecture go hand in hand. Both are strong factors for creating a make-believe world.”

Recalling his theatre days,Soni said that earlier it was sheer power of the acting of an artist,which helped the production team to enact a scene. “There was not much budget with the production houses that time,therefore it was difficult to create a number of locations on one set. So,the onus was on the actor,to make the audience imagine the location,through his articulate dialogues,” he said.

Pointing out that architects have a bright future in film arena,he said that a major responsibility for bringing out a good film rests on the shoulders of the design team of a film. “Set creation is an important part of production. This is evident from the fact that viewers tend to remember films shot in beautiful locations. And most of the time,these are not real locations as projected,but are sets created artificially,” he added.

The three-day celebrations will end on Sunday. ‘The Grid’ — a brochure with information on Chandigarh College of Arts,College of Architecture,Museum & Art Gallery and Le-Corbusier Centre will also be unveiled.

Meanwhile,visitors and tourists were greeted with flowers all through the day at Le Corbusier Centre,Sector-19 where Corbusier had conceptualised the foundation plans and design of the city.
