Le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut Card
This blank card features one of Le Corbusier’s most powerful buildings and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves Brighton architecture.
The chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp (France) was completed in 1954 and it is considered one of the finest examples of Modernist architecture by Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier and one of the most important examples of twentieth-century religious Architecture.
Notre Dame du Haut is commonly thought of as a more extreme design of Le Corbusier’s late style. Commissioned by the Association de l’Oeuvre Notre Dame du Haut, the chapel is a simple design with two entrances, a main altar, and three chapels beneath towers. Although the building is small, it is powerful and complex. In the interior, the spaces left between the walls and roof and filled with clerestory windows, as well as the asymmetric light from the wall openings, serve to further reinforce the sacred nature of the space and reinforce the relationship of the building with its surroundings. The lighting in the interior is soft and indirect, from the clerestory windows and reflecting off the whitewashed walls of the chapels with projecting towers.
The design is digitally printed on to 300gsm FSC certified card and comes packaged in a biodegradeable cellophane wallet.
Each card is left blank inside for your own message.
