THE CHURCHES OF LE CORBUSIER
Materia: Monografías / ensayos de arquitectos
Le Corbusier not only designed and built churches; he was also intensely interested in religion and faith. His work deeply infl uenced church architecture in the twentieth century.This book examines Le Corbusier’s relation- ship with religion in two introductory chap- ters, presents his four designs for La Sainte-Baume, the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut de Ronchamp, the Cloister of La Tourette, and the Church of St. Pierre, and, in the fi nal chapter, examines his infl uence on church architecture in Europe in the twentieth cen-tury. Examples include the Jubilee Church near Rome by Richard Meier, the Chapel of Saint Ignatius in Seattle by Steven Holl, the Santa Maria Church in Porto by Álvaro Siza Tadao Ando’s Meditation Space in Paris, as well as the Kapelle der Versöhnung (Church of Reconciliation) in Berlin by Reitermann & Sassenroth.
