Le Corbusier’s Ronchamp Chapel Controversy


Anyone remotely interested in modern architecture must have heard of Le Corbusier’s chapel of Notre Dame du Haut (1954) in Ronchamp (France). It is one of Le Corbusier’s iconic buildings and is currently in the eye of a storm (in a teacup?) with regards to replacement of its visitor’s center to be designed by Renzo Piano.

    Why do U date the chapel as (1954?) the correct dates are 1950-55. Le Corbusier always looked forward, soI believe he would have accepted Piano’s proposal.
