Le Corbusier’s (& José Oubrerie) L’eglise Saint-Pierre de Firminy

This is a follow up on our trip to Italy and France last summer where we got the chance to visit the cultural complex at Firminy-Vert. Here are a few quick sketches made on site; a few trying to capture the feeling of the interior space.

places I’ve drawn, but have not yet visited series: Le Corbusier’s (& José Oubrerie) L’eglise Saint-Pierre de Firminy

Designed in the mid-1960’s, this church by Le Corbusier was completed by José Oubrerie in 2006 who was a member of the original design staff. Construction started in 1973 but was halted in 1978 due to political conflicts. These drawings were made while looking at slides that my wife took when she visited it.
