Notre Dame du Haut, Le Corbusier


#1

Hi,

https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/notre-dame-du-haut

Here is an old submission on which I had time to work on this Week-end to add some text. It is a lesser known work by Le Corbusier, and the setting is at least as nice as the chapel.
Let me know what you would like to be added, if anything or do not hesitate if you have more info or pictures to add (I got some Creative Commons on my submission this week-end).

Thanks,

Thanks CoolCrab. I do not find pictures from the Inside as Creative Commons, but here are some from a Google search:

Completed in 1955, the chapel respresents a significant departure from Le Corbusier’s “principles of standardization”. In other words, this was a very site-specific design.

The chapel is open daily. Nominally from 1000 to 1700 hours. There is a 8€ admission.

The Jura mountains lie to the east. As well as the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Le Corbu’s birthplace.

Father Couturier, who sponsored the chapel’s Commission, also sponsored the design of the convent at La Tourette.
