Le Corbusier, José Oubrerie
location Firminy
function church
contributed by goa

Construction works on this church by Le Corbusier in the French city of Firminy were stopped in the 1970's, with only the foundations and a base square built. Due to local political conflicts the project remained stalled from 1975 to 2003, when the local government declared the mouldering concrete ruin an 'architectural heritage' and financed its completion. Le Corbusier's former apprentice José Oubrerie, who worked initially on the scheme in his atelier, finished the church in 2006. Since there were no building plans left, he had to work with old pictures, models and sketches.

istanbul tours says:
This walking tour was a great way to see st etienne and learn about the incredible history. It was a high educational trip but the information was given in a easy to understand way whilst walking around one of the most beautiful cities. What could be better. Our guide was really nice and also answered a whole range of other questions about st etienne This was a great thing to do on our first day in st etienne and gave us a wonderful insight into everything, we also saw a lot of sights in a short space of time which would be good for people short in time. Some tips they gave were invaluable such as getting into Le Louvre without the lines... The answer you will have to find out on the tour! Have an Enjoy :)
