An other name for this building is the Chapel of Light and the outside certainly does not give any clues to the interior of the Chapel. It's a must visit for designers young and old. If I write more it will spoil your visit. Ensure...More

I think is one of the most impressive church ever built. There's now an extension made by Renzo Piano, and most of this is private. Because of this, the complex, originally free, now require a ticket. Unfortunately, there was a woman with long bond hai...More

This took our breath away. Perched on top of a hill in gorgeous countryside is this unexpected, absolutely stunning architectural masterpiece. Unusual lines to the building - at the same time it seems both angular and curved - and inside is serene and quite moving...More

This site is so well maintained. Great guides and support centre. Just fantastic. The Assn. Le Corbusier and local interests have really preserved this site and Corbusier legacy with care. The town itself is rather grim. Come early, see the Chapel and move on. Pack...More

We made a massive detour on our way from Paris to Beaune to visit Le Corbusier's stunning chapel. Logistically, it took some planning. Early train from Paris arrived at Belfort- Montbéliard. Picked up a hire car ( beware of the irregular office hours of the...More

You may or may not be a fan of Le Corbusier's artistic vision, and you may or may not be a fan of concrete, but his chapel just outside Ronchamp in the Vosges is definitely worth a visit. The church, built in only 2 years,...More

A chapel in the middle of nowhere, constructed by Le Corbusier. As improbable as it seems, it is real, even though hard to believe even when standing in front of it. Perhaps one his most successful and, yes, human designs, it blends perfectly with the...More

Coming to see this building is well worth the trip to its slightly remote location. This is apparently an excellent example of Le Corbusier's work, and it is clear why it is used as example of free thinking in architectural work. The building itself is...More
