New on eClassroom - Tone Wheeler Talk

2104 b0

An outstanding talk is now available on the website of AAA partner eClassroom.

eClassroom is now featuring a talk by architect and AAA President Tone Wheeler on Ronchamp Chapel and Le Corbusier. Part of a talks series titled 'Iconic Buildings of the 20th Century', the talk took place at the Brickworks Studio and revealed how the iconic building was conceived and executed. 

RONCHAMP CHAPEL

Ronchamp is Le Corbusier’s most famous building, but most people only know it from one photo (pictured above), and this singular view leads to a limited understanding of just how brilliant this building is.

The chapel is a result of an intense process, both personal and pragmatic, and a detailed understanding of that process can lead to a completely different view. 

Tone Wheelers presentation explores the history of the development of the building and analyses Le Corbusier’s design thinking, his ideas and concepts that gave rise to the form of the building. 

It was extraordinarily radical, controversial and confronting, and at the time many leading architects were horrified, but later Ronchamp Chapel was held up as one of the greats of the 20th Century.
