a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Le Corbusier
October 6

Le Corbusier, born as Charles Edouard Jeanneret in 1887, is best known for his pure works of modern architecture such as the 1929 'machine for living', Villa Savoye. In contrast, his 1955 design for a small chapel near Ronchamp, France, is a sculptural expression of mass and light. Masterfully situated upon a small hill, the chapel with its towers and sail-like roof, presents a spiritual pilgrimage for the thousands of people who visit each year.
