"Le Corbusier's Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut is one of the most unique and surprising religious buildings of the 20th century. In Ronchamp, eastern France, Le Corbusier built his masterpiece on the site of a church destroyed in World War II--which itself took the place of a fourth-century Christian chapel--and transformed an ancient pilgrimage site into a dramatic work of modern art. In this insightful and gorgeously illustrated volume, Maria Antoinetta Crippa and Françoise Causse explore the reasons Le Corbusier, one of modern architecture's most famous exponents of urbanism, created an ethereal space of worship on a remote hill in the French countryside. Putting the chapel into historical context and exploring the controversies that surround it, the book also features stunning new photographs that capture the genius of Le Corbusier's design."--Publisher's description.
