Resumen del libro

Le Corbusier not only designed and built churches; he was also intensely interested in religion and faith. His work deeply infl uenced church architecture in the twentieth century.
This book examines Le Corbusiers relationship with religion in two introductory chapters, presents his four designs for La SainteBaume, the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut de Ronchamp, the Cloister of La Tourette, and the Church of St. Pierre, and, in the fi nal chapter, examines his infl uence on church architecture in Europe in the twentieth century. Examples include the Jubilee Church near Rome by Richard Meier, the Chapel of Saint Ignatius in Seattle by Steven Holl, the Santa Maria Church in Porto by Álvaro Siza,Tadao Andos Meditation Space in Paris, as
well as the Kapelle der Versöhnung (Church of Reconciliation) in Berlin by Reitermann & Sassenroth.Flora Samuel holds a PhD in architecture and
teaches design and architecture history at the University of Bath, UK, and is the author of numerous publications. Inge Linder-Galliard also holds a PhD in architecture and has researched and written about Le Corbusiers work in numerous essays.
