A visit to the Ronchamp Chapel

"Nothing is transmissible but thought", Le Corbusier wrote in his final book. I was inspired to see the Ronchamp Chapel for myself after reading the this quote. I wanted to learn more about him and his thoughts. This photo was taken in my desire to capture the divine proportions Le Corbusier achieved when integrating human measurements with architecture. Photos were prohibited to be taken inside the chapel, but I was awed by the way his ideas were expressed through the structure, both inside and out.
