Notre Dame du Haut

The chapel sits on a hill over looking the small town of Ronchamp, France. The road to Notre Dame du Haut is windy and long, curving its way through the French foliage. Completed in 1954, this chapel is one of Le Corbusier's most important works. Its exterior form is shaped to respond to the surrounding hillsides and vantages, while the interior is alive with transforming light.
