Notre Dame du Haut

In the mid 19th century, Le Corbusier designed buildings that relied upon the raw concrete and the use of light to emphasize the beauty of the structure. This paper presents an in-depth analysis of one of his structures, Notre-Dame-du-Haut, a chapel set high above the village of Ronchamp, and an excellent example of the nontraditional use of light and raw concrete. The paper discusses the location of the chapel, its functionality as a church, and its strange shape. The paper also includes diagrams, sketches, and photographs of Notre-Dame-du-Haut.
