Inspired by

 Church at Firminy  

Location: Firminy, France

Known for its striking form and beautiful interior experiences, the Church at Firminy by Le Corbusier was another evolution of the core thoughts and practices of the architect throughout his many years of designing. Natural light floods in through light boxes and through a series of organized openings that are a direct reference to the constellation Orion. The light boxes are designed in a way that will bring light to the alter on specific religious holidays.This church was the last major work of Le Corbusier and was left unfinished upon his death in 1965. It was finished forty-one years after his death in 2006, keeping his essence alive.

Architect

 Le Corbusier 

Le Corbusier (1887 – 1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of modern architecture. In his architecture, he chiefly built with steel and reinforced concrete and worked with elemental geometric forms. Dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities, Le Corbusier was influential in urban planning, and was a founding member of the Congrès international d'architecture moderne (CIAM).
