Le Corbusiers Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, eastern
France, is one of the most unique and surprising religious
buildings of the twentieth century. Replacing an earlier church
that had been destroyed in the Second World War, a church that
itself had been built on the site of a fourth-century Christian
chapel, Le Corbusier transformed an ancient pilgrimage site into a
dramatic work of modern art. In this insightful and beautifully
illustrated volume, Maria Antonietta Crippa and Francoise Causse
explore the particular set of circumstances that led one of the
last centurys most famous exponents of urbanism to create an
ethereal space of worship on a remote hill in the French
countryside. As well as putting the chapel into its historical
context and exploring the controversies and arguments that have
surrounded it, the book, part of a series which began with Matisse:
The Chapel at Vence (RA Publications, 2013), features stunning new
photographs that capture the genius of Le Corbusiers design.
