If there was a church modeled after Elvis’ hair, Le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut is it. The pilgrimate chapel is located in Ronchamp, France. Indeed, it is more famous than the little town that most people simply call the structure itself Ronchamp.

The cleverness of unusual design of the billowing concrete roof is apparent when it rains: water pours off the slanted roof onto a fountain, creating a dramatic waterfall.

Although quite different from his usual design, Notre Dame du Haut is considered one of Le Corbusier’s finest work.

  1. I hit the cancer sticks for most of my life and quitting was literally impossible. I tried all of the quitting products but none did any good. Then I heard about the smokeless cigarette. The smokeless cigarette. The smokeless cigarette uses a nicotine liquid that holds just nicotine. No smelly smoke at all. They have completely saved my life.
