16. Ronchamp. Chapelle de Notre-Dame du Haut



Dear Corey,

Famous architect Le Corbusier wrote about the
roof of this chapel that the shell of a crab inspired its
design. Inside however, the ceiling resembles the underside
of a Biblical tent. This effect creates an impressively
religious and deeply spiritual atmosphere. This is to many
the most impressive church of the last 500 years.

Warm regards.
R
