Le Corbusier
 
location Firminy
function auditorium, community centre, culture, exposition space
contributed by Michael_Noordam

The concrete ‘House of Culture’ was built on a hill, on a former stone quarry. The situation contributed to the majesty of the structure. The most striking detail of the design is the curved roof. The inclined façade resembles an athletic complex. The building was conceived directly after the period of constructing the convent of La Tourette, and some similar architectural elements are recognized: the Corbusier theme of the architectural sequence through a series of spaces, and the way rooms are illuminated. Together with this Cultural Centre, The nearby church Saint-Pierre and sports stadium form an entire Corbusier complex.
