Windows making up the wall of the eastern meeting room in the Mill Ownerʼs Association Building designed by Le Corbusier in Ahmedabad. The surface of the wall is divided into fixed windows and colorful bookshelves, between which are placed ventilation windows built of wooden inward-opening doors and screen doors. Outside, the elevation is covered with vertical brise-soleil between which are growing plants bathed in the eastern morning sun.
