architectural pilgrimage

.
A few more pictures of the church? どうぞ!Bitteschön.
(More after the jump.)

Notre Dame du Haut was planned from 1950 by Le Corbusier and completed in 1954. The chapel, which had been there before, was destroyed during WW2. The structure is mostly built of béton bruit and it is one of the first examples of a new sculptural architecture after the International Style.













It's in Ronchamp, a tiny tiny town near tiny Belfort in eastern France. Can you see the white spot near the horizon in between of all these green hills!?
