Research and read about the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut, designed by Le Corbusier in 1955, located in Ronchamp, France.
Many have said the work of Le Corbusier changed as he aged. Compare this building of his, which was done late in his career to any of the buildings he did earlier. Describe what is similar in Le Corbusier’s approach in both, and what is different here.
[Alternatively you can compare, if you wish, Ronchamp with his paintings and sculptures showing how he translated across the different media].
Link the choices of materials, forms, sizes, siting, context, ritual uses of the buildings, colors, art used within the buildings, etc. with the ideas Le Corbusier was concerned with in both. Cite all your sources in APA format. See:
